Topsy Turvy Hanging Garden

I am a gardener. I like these Topsy Turvy hanging planters. I have had a couple of them in my backyard. I had them in different parts of the yard, so watering was a bit of a hassle. I kept thinking that there has to be an easier way.

So I got the idea to build this:

My daughter and I built this with some scrap 4x4s we had laying around the yard. We bought a few more of the Topsy Turvy planters at Big Lots ($1.50 each). Then we went to Home Depot to buy plants, brackets, planting mix, and the concrete bases.

Took my daughter and me about half an hour to build. It is a very simple design. I had to add a crossbar that attaches the frame to the fence behind it for added stability.

It was fun to do. I will write about the results in the future. I will also comment on the success or failure of this little project. I think it is neat, hopefully somebody else will agree.
