Succulent Wall DIY

1 Jun

This past week my mom and Grayson were in Nicaragua on a mission trip. Ryan and I got to spend a couple days with my dad in BG, then I went back home with him to Memphis. We decided to do a project that my mom has been wanting for a while: a succulent wall. She already has a ton of them (the ones above), but we wanted more varieties so we bought a few other pots at Kroger and Lowe’s.

First we built a box from treated wood and painted it.

Then we cut wire to fit within the frame to hold the soil and roots. And we stapled it to the box.

Then attached the back and added trim to the front of the frame. Since it is heavy, we added a wire to hang it like a picture when it is finished.

Then we added soil and the plants.

We are going to let it sit horizontal for at least one week so the roots will have time to grow.

What do you think?

    I think it will look fantastic once the plants get established and they start to grow! Awesome idea!!
