I love, love, love this!

What a quick easy way to really spruce up your backyard fence. These can also be used on a Pallet Garden.

Here is a before photo which is actually from last year before we built the planter box along this fence, yuck!

So the steps are super simple. Zander cooks a lot of pizza so we saved the cans that the tomatoes came in until we had enough. Remove the labels and then punch a few holes in the bottoms for drainage. You can also use little tin buckets.

Spray paint the outsides of the cans and let dry. I used Krylon Basic Blue. Then spray at least the first inch of the insides, I went ahead and painted the full inside.

Once the paint is totally dry use screws to attach the cans to the fence.

We just eyeballed the positioning making sure to alternate heights.

Fill the cans about half way with soil, then plant your desired flowers or herbs.
