I’ve been working toward building a wall for LouAnn. She loves my wall and wants one of her own. I can do that!
LouAnn has a narrow wall just inside her bay window that will accommodate an 18″ wide by 5′ tall vertical garden. I have the sheet of LDPE ready to rip. I’m going to use composite lumber for the frame and stand. I have to keep an eye out for the right aquarium. I saw one at Goodwill that would have been perfect but failed to grab it. <sigh> Hindsight.
I am going to set the LDPE backer in channels in the frame. I anticipate the whole being stronger than a sum of the parts as the LDPE will add rigidity to the composite once it’s secured into the channels. I plan to use 1x4s (I found a place that produces composite fence pickets in the right dimension). I can make the entire frame out of 2-8′ lengths.
I’ll add bits of info and pictures as I get the project pulled together.
