hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

This is a sponsored post brought to you by The Home Depot!  We love them for sponsoring CWTS and challenging us with this awesome project!
A few weeks ago, I introduced you to my vertical garden project – you can check out part 1 and 2 and 3 herehere, and here!

Today it’s time to show you this bad boy!!  

Home Depot made it super simple with their written instructions and you can get all my tips and what I learned along the way in this post.

I love how unique this planter is! I’ve planted in containers for years now, but this is definitely the coolest one yet!

We have a lot of land, so space isn’t an issue, but I could totally see this being perfect for a small yard or even in an urban home or apartment!

My final plan is to hang it on a tree near the front of our property that hurricane Sandy took down this past fall- right now, it’s just a 10 foot tree stump, but I want to let the roots get stronger (about 3 weeks) before I mount it vertically.

My favorite part of the project is the irrigation system- it was such an easy thing to add, but now it’s going to make sure that my don’t die on me!

I loved taking on this challenge from The Home Depot and I hope it inspires you to think creatively this spring as your planting and making your yard look awesome!

I was all about planting, so last weekend Eric and I planted our very first garden too!!  Can’t wait to see if it all grows!! Fingers Crossed!!
