Step by Step Instructions

1 Mark the wall
2 Drill holes
3 Attach to the wall
4 Position your baskets
  • Step 1. Mark the wall

    First measure the wall-mounted frame. Use a pencil and a spirit level to mark out where on the wall your frame will sit. Hold the frame against these markings and use the pencil to mark the placement for the screws. Use a spirit level to check these are level.

  • Step 2. Drill holes

    Put on safety goggles and a dust mask and use a hammer drill to drill holes for your wall plugs. Hammer the wall plugs into the holes until they sit flush with the surface.

  • Step 3. Attach to the wall

    To secure your vertical garden to the wall position the frame and screw your screws into the wall plugs.

  • Step 4. Position your baskets

    Next place your hooks on the frame and position your baskets. Your vertical garden should now be ready to dress with flowers, herbs and a wide variety of plants. With their modular design you can hang multiple units next to one another to create a feature wall.
