Get a Rise out of Vertical Gardening
This post is sponsored by Lowes Canada and all of the materials were provided by my local Lowes store. They asked me to come up with a creative DIY gardening project for their website and this vertical plant stand was a lot of fun to make.

Cool Benefits to a Staircase Plant Stand
Pardon my boastfulness but I’m really pleased with it.
Fast & Frugal
- The materials to build the stand cost just $100 Canadian. It will be less in the United States.
- It’s designed for a beginner builder and can be made in an hour or two.
- So many different fruits, vegetables, and herbs grow nicely in containers.
- On a stand like this one, you can move the pots around to suit the light needs of the various plants and keep everyone happy.
- It’s also very handy to have everything in one place for watering.
Tons of Growing Space
- If you make use of the steps, side supports, and the top copper bar, there is a lot of room for potted, climbing, and hanging plants.
- If you get the wood cuts done at the store, you should be able to fit all the materials in a mid-size car. That’s what I did.
- Use it outdoors in the summer and bring it indoors for winter plant storage in front of sliding glass doors.
