Ah, pots there one of landscapes, greatest achievements. It means you can put a garden where you don't have a garden bed, and I reckon one of the best kind of pots to use is your classic terracotta? That's harmless we're being using them for years, but on the ground that doesn't look quite much, I'm thinking we put it in the sky this ad. He gives you a vertical garden, but you don't need a wall to put it on now. What I'm thinking is something that looks a little bit like a bookshelf, but if you put these guys on top they're just going to blow off so what we need to do, let's make some holes and set the pot in the pond to mark the circle. I'm just going to use one of the pots and trace the outside, but if I was to cut away that line, the pot would fall straight through the hole. So I'm going to come in five miles from that line. A piece of timber that I can take out of that hole, I can use it to trace around pop all the other one. Now you can get a hole saws that will do a hole.
This big part, because these are so robust. They rip into the point and they kick a little bit. What I like to do is just draw a pilot hole, use a jigsaw with a fine blade on it. It's a lot neater a lot easier. Now you don't have to do any measurements. You got your template, so if you put it over the top, every one of the shelves will look exactly the same. We've got our four shelves now. How are we gonna? Keep him up? Well, what I'm gonna do, there's drill a hole in each corner and suspend it from the beating of my Verena. The hardest job by far is getting this level and tie it off. You don't want it to fall down on the next one and ruin the whole job. What you could do is tie a knot underneath each of these four points where it hits yourself or what I'm gonna do is get a good-sized. Zip tie come underneath pinch. It together and create a bit of a pattern going down the side through the rope as well now I've mixed to match my plants, but you could put the ones that want less water at the top because they are going to drip through and get more water. As they worked in and these guys that are hanging down, you can cut them off because there's a fair bit of weight here, if you like, but if you're worried about it blowing around the wind, you could just tie it off down to the ground as well, And just like that, you too can have a great terracotta feature for your veranda. We've been bringing life to my Brando with the humble terra cotta pot.
Now, let's see what else we can do, I've had such great success with this vertical garden. I've been inspired. I've gotten a little potty now pots traditionally are on the ground. I'm gonna work with that, but I'm not gonna just keep these like normal pots. I'm gonna make a dome and a ball out of them. All you need to do is glue one to the other and continue at least 12-centimeter terracotta pots, believe it or not only a dollar, fifty each so to make a dome cost you about $ 30. In pots they look fantastic and again, you know you got a perfect circle when the top edge and the bottom edge you're, both touching on all of your pots. So that dictates the size, depending on the size of your pot, now to keep me in place. Short-Term, we're gonna use a little glue gun and to keep me in place long-term, some fast-acting, liquid nails. Now I've gotta admit these joints aren't that attractive. So what I've done is just wet my finger run it down there neaten the whole thing up, and then I can give it a coat of paint the same color as the terracotta. The reality is that this is just like the arts you're seeing brickwork. It'S really strong because it's keyed in everything that wants to fall wants to fall on itself, so it's holding its own weight. If you wanted to move it around well, it's probably a two or three men: job trying to slide a piece of ply underneath it and then finally a nice spot for it in the garden.
