DIY Super Easy Pocket Wall Planters

Now that it’s summer I’m sure many of us apartment dwellers are suffering from Garden Envy!  Add a little inexpensive greenery to your rented outdoor space without damaging your landlord’s precious property. This DIY project from Apartment Therapy is a great idea to start from and something that you can add your own flare and modifications to!

What you need:


  • Galvanized steel chicken wire
  • succulents
  • 28 gauge steel galvanized wire
  • Succulents
  • Coco liner


  • Metal snip pliers


Step 1:  Cut your chicken wire into 10″ by 10″ squares (or whatever size square you’d like) and bend three of the corners toward the inside of the square. You want it to look like an envelope.

Step 2: Use the wire to fasten the corners together.

Step 3:  Cut off the remaining fourth corner at the top, leaving just the rectangular pocket.

Step 4: Fill the insides of each pocket with some coco liner, and plant your succulents.

Step 5: Hang the pocket on a hook or nail, and you’ve got a beautiful way to enjoy your tiny gardens!
