Picture of Building a Planter
I just love plants and trees , and waking up to a  " Green " environment in general.

My house has a lot of plants allocated inside , and i thought to my self that it`s time to construct some Planter for the porch in the living-room .
So i drove to some Hanger in my city that sells woods , bought me a few and started to build .

 Enjoy !

Step 4: Drilling holes for drainage

It is very important to clear away excess water !

 if you let the water to accumulate at the bottom the plants roots will start to rot , and eventually die

Step 5: Cover the bottom with a nylon

Since the wood is not protected against water ( way more expensive ) .

 i want to minimize the contact of water with the Wood`s surface

so i spread glue on the bottom and on the sides and glued to it the Nylon

Step 6: Let the Paint begin!

Paint a few layers of color  , make sure you let the color dry between one layer and the other .

Step 7: Start by mounting the hangers

Drill your Porch rails and mount the hangers.

make sure you use strong bolts  and nuts , and very stiff Hangers - for safety !

Step 8: Mount the Planter

Check that it`s stable and leveled up straight 

Step 9: Safety anchoring

It`s very very important to anchor the Planter with another  chain to the rails ! 
just in case that the Hangers will collapse or brake.

 i took a very strong chain and bolted it to the rails  as you can see.

Step 10: Completed !

I chose plants that spread during time and " Fall " to the bottom, that way i will  cover the surface of the rails and Planter
