How to Attach a Planter Box to a Fence


Having a decorative fence planter is a welcome addition to any landscaping design. Add a planter to a fence to jazz up an otherwise boring fence-line. You can add color and creativity to the planters by planting multi-colored flowers, adding crawling vines, or simply painting the planters.

Things You'll Need

  • Planter hanging brackets
  • Planter
  • Tape measure
  • Purchase metal hook or hanging brackets designed specifically for hanging planters. These are available at many home and garden stores and come with screws or bolts for attachment.

  • Measure the length of your planter and mark an area about six to eight inches away from both ends. This is where you'll mount your hanging brackets.

  • Attach the brackets to the back of the planter at the marked points. Screw the brackets into the back of the planter tightly.

  • Hang the planter on the top of the fence and ensure that it sits evenly. Use a level to make sure the weight is evenly dispersed.

Tips & Warnings

  • Fill your planter with soil and plant flowers after you've hung it on the fence. This will prevent you from having to lift a heavier planter.
