Take down all those photos, paintings and posters off your walls and replace them with these cool new Living Wall Planters.
We’re happy to partner with Dremel Weekends, a new DIY website from Dremel featuring step-by-step guides to craft, home and garden projects for all skill levels. This how-to uses easy-to-work-with (and outdoor-friendly!) cedar wood to create modern stacked planters you can fill with fresh herbs, flowers, and other greenery to liven up your patio or backyard. Be sure to get the kids involved with this Dremel Weekends project by getting them to pick out their favorite flowers and greenery. If you are using this for edibles,   be careful not to use any treated woods as you don't want to eat that in the foods. Garden walls and walkways are a couple of the ways we create curb appeal, but sometimes we often overlook these places around our homes and gardens, especially in smaller spaces or lots, that can add interest and details to our homes. A pleasing combination of Asian inspired elements and eclectic decor items like the mirrors, with the plants-all attached to the fence to make it interesting for the homeowner or visitor.
This certainly would not be an terribly attractive fence by itself, but with the simple addition of shutters and a plant stand, watering cans and a few plants, it is transformed. Imagine standing at the bottom of these stairs and facing the wall that connects the house to the garage without the shrubs or the singular yet colorful piece of art. This looks to be a courtyard and it is certainly a happy way to welcome visitors from the street via a colorful walled entry. If you were walking between spaces in this yard, it would not be nearly so interesting as it is because the owners have chosen to break up a long brick wall with a lattice planter. In between these very tall walls, containers add not just interest, but the varied plants add texture and beautiful, cooling variable green color. Another creative use of framed boxes along a fence wall, this a bit more complex than the one above. Here the owners created a privacy fence between garden and drive by using planting boxes with climbing vines to obscure the view as well as create a more intimate space. These owners did the same thing, but with the addition of benches, and by putting the flower boxes on top! Instead of the usual open space on this porch, or the often used privacy curtain or shade, the easy addition of lattice and a metal table filled with blue and lavender plants makes for a more inviting and serene space. In a big space or a small space, adding this planter with herbs makes going between house and garden a pleasure.
Look here and think how totally uninteresting this wall would be without these simple additions. In a long expanse of wall, or along the side of a garage or side of a house, the addition of a single area of espalier like this can create a far more interesting connection between buildings and gardens.
Although I am not wild about the white stone and pavers, this is still a good example of how a narrow space between two buildings can be transformed by greenery. If you have a wall or side of a building, even placing a colorful old chair and a potted plant breaks up an expanse of boring. This owner decided to not just decorate the wall, but to also paint the wall with a bright color to serve as a background for an old door and potted climbing vines. From cottage to modern, this wall is transformed by the addition of a sleek and contemporary box with uplighting that must surely be dramatic at night.
A bit more complicated, but a wonderful way to connect two buildings and create a welcoming entrance that leads to both.

Here we have two completely different walls, one of wood, one of stone, but symmetry is created by the alle of trees on each side that form a welcoming canopy, as well as the centered stone and pebble walkway bordered by plants and plant covered benches. And if all you have is a small corner or short expanse of fence, you can still pretty it up. Color blocking the fence here really works, especially because the house behind it is a cream color.
This is one of the most creative ways I have seen in a long time to break up a tall and long fence.
I am not sure this really qualifies for the intent of this post, but I just love New England, and I just loved how the use of a long row of pots on each side of the walkway leads one to the beautiful front entrance.
This space would be beautiful even without the table, but the decorated table vignette makes it outstanding.

In a natural setting like this, no other fence material blends in like cedar can, and while new and raw looking here, the wood quickly weathers to match the greyish tone of tree trunks in the forest beyond.
When low maintenance is important, the ability to leave cedar as is to naturally weather is a large part of its appeal. This downplayed wooden gate with hidden hardware blends well with sleek modern architecture.
Wood Fence Design OptionsThe shadowbox or board on board fence is the age old solution that looks equally good on both sides, both for you and your neighbor.

Our vote is to create something both beautiful and functional, like this living wall that'll freshen up any outdoor oasis, whether a small urban patio or a spacious backyard.

As an optional final finishing touch for your living wall, add some Solar Lanterns to help light up the space at night! These areas often connect various buildings or outdoor spaces, yet without embellishment these areas can seem disconnected. This is a mix of things that ordinarily wouldn’t be put together, yet the arrangement is quit pleasing, again along a fence.
The old corbels flank an equally old shutter, and the grays are a perfect backdrop for the purple and green of the plants. However, all the color on the wall and the floor seems to be somewhat visually balanced by all blue pottery and just green and white plants, allowing the eyes to rest, even among all the pattern and color.

Although the stone path and beautiful walls are lovely, the walkway is greatly enhanced by these additions. What makes it work is the variation in the size of these simple framed boxes, and also all the containers being one color tone with an additional pop of white.
Old windows and shutters placed on the wall, with vines and climbing flowers, metal flowerpot hangers, together create a vignette in purple.
The plain white brick walls behind that amazing outdoor sectional, would be incredibly sterile without the plants. Living sculpture like this is fun, whimsical and serves  up interest in even the smallest of spaces.
With a little imagination, this person recycled some cups and mugs onto a mosaic and created tons of fun in a tiny space. Instead of scattering the furniture around the yard, concentrating them along the wall, with the addition of a few colorful pillows and a mirror, almost calls to you to come and sit a few minutes. Pinks and blues combine to lend a sweet, cottage feel to a leaning old window transitioned to a bulletin board and decorated with blue colored photos.
The plantings on each side soften the edges and the lights in the ceiling must be lovely at night while adding visual interest to this structure. The plants grow in a planting grid, while a white cedar wood frame houses a watering tray on top that trickles water down to each pocket in the grid.

The clever use of a solid concrete wall placed in between the wood fencing acts like a frame for the art. The combinations of blues and greens and different varieties of plants and shrubs appears almost like a giant work of art.
The variety of color in the plastic bottles and caps and their shear numbers makes this so cool. Most homeowners own a few common wood working tools such as a circular saw, hand post hole diggers, cordless drill, hammer and nails. You’ll join thousands of design-conscious readers to get gardening inspiration and innovative design solutions for enjoying outdoor spaces. A blank wall on your home or garage or walkway-path, that could use some additional details that might add curb appeal or architectural detail to a bland space? Look at the bottom of the shutter and there is a baby elephant statue and all sorts of quirky accessories. The gray wall is smooth while the fencing is highly textured, adding dimension and further interest. This creates truly a neighbor-friendly fence as there really isn’t a ‘face’ or backside to the fence style; it looks practically the same from both sides. I absolutely love the table and the placement of even more potted plants, yet still lots of room for people to sit and enjoy drinks and food.
