How to do it

Step 1

Cut Lattice to Size

Lay pots on top of wooden lattice to help determine size. Allow at least 6 inches between the pots so plants have room to grow. Ours is 4 feet x 34-1/4 inches. Cut lattice using the lattice grid as a guide. Use a sanding sponge and file to knock off rough and splintered areas after cutting lattice to size. Sand the surface of the lattice to prep for staining or painting.
