When it comes to the outdoors, there really is no better decoration than a lush garden or beautiful plants. Unfortunately, for many of us, having a yard large enough to accommodate such a large or presentable garden may be difficult especially if we live in smaller spaces like apartments or with only a tiny yard or porch.
Thankfully, there are some great options available, one of which being the use of walls. Walls are an excellent choice for displaying plants as they take up no additional space while also giving your entire home an amazing first impression.
Here, we’ve found 14 incredible ways you can transform your bare walls into wonderful pieces of art using plants.
1. Alternate Planter Sizes
A great option is to mount several different-sized planter boxes along your walls. This will create a more “chaotic” appeal that keeps things fresh and interesting.
2. Create a Vertical Garden
If you don’t have the space to make a standard horizontal garden, consider making a vertical one. This option is both super stylish as well as entirely functional.

A great option for small apartment-sized locations with only a small wall between balconies. Simply use a small lattice and hang on your wall to create a mini garden.
4. Create Planter Holders

5. Create an Iron Framework
While certainly a bit more challenging, this will work wonders in truly expressing the beauty of your plants in a way that is space-saving and eye-catching.

A great way to give the appearance that your wall is simply an extension of your house, using old window frames can harken back to a simpler time while making use of your limited space.
