In this video, Boston Roots, one of our Forum associates from The Home Depot Community Forums, will demonstrate how you can construct an attractive vertical garden using your favorite plants, a few pots, organic potting soil, S-hooks, and a piece of vertical lattice.

It’s an easy, enjoyable project you can complete in just a few hours, and you’ll have a lovely new vertical garden to admire anywhere around your home that needs some greenery.
