DIY Build for Outdoor Vertical Garden Pots (With Free Plans)

Looking to add more character to your backyard or curb appeal to your front yard? Build a wall for vertical garden pots! This easy woodworking project turns out SO good!

Thank you to Kreg and Build Something for sponsoring this outdoor wall for vertical garden pots build! All opinions are entirely my own. This post also contains affiliate links, but nothing that I wouldn’t recommend wholeheartedly. Read my full disclosure here.

We’ve got BIG plans for this backyard and we’re hoping to be able to completely redo the whole yard this Summer.

To really get our minds right and ready for a backyard makeover, we’re starting with a super simple woodworking project to add more character to the backyard. We build an outdoor plant wall with vertical garden pots! And it turned out SOOOOOO good, guys!

Once the whole backyard is done, this will fit it perfectly with what we have planned…but for now with a yard full of dirt and weeds…it’s motivation to keep working!

Kreg Pocket Hole System

We incorporated pocket hole joinery into this build, which is one of the easiest ways to join wood in woodworking projects. We have Kreg’s K5 Master System and LOVE it. It’s a hidden weapon for beginning woodworkers!

For this fun DIY (and SUPER EASY) woodworking project we teamed up with our friends Kreg and BuildSomething.com again to create the plans and share them online for free, which are now available on BuildSomething.com!

If you’re wondering, Build Something is a website ran by Kreg Tools that is full of easy to follow woodworking plans that are all available for free! I promise that you are going to find so much inspiration while you are there!
