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.

Step 2 Create Lattice Frame

Sandwich the lattice between two pieces of 1 x 2-inch boards at the top and bottom edges. Glue with wood glue and nail in place for extra support. Stain lattice and wood edges as desired.

Step 3 Attach Pots to Lattice

Loop and connect the end of a zip tie through the lattice. Sit a pot in the loop and adjust it to fit the pot and hold it tight to the lattice. Repeat for all pots.

Step 4 Hang Lattice

Hold up lattice frame and mark where it should go on the wall. Attach the lattice to a wall with wood screws or other appropriate attachments determined by the type of wall. Use a level and adjust as needed.
