DIY Cedar Privacy Planter Wall

Cedar Plant Wall Front Porch Renovation

What you need to to build this cedar privacy planter wall for the front porch renovation project.

It's hard to believe that week 3 of the One Room Challenge is already here! I'm excited to share our super fast and affordable DIY this week! We're getting one step closer to our Hygge Home goals for the front porch!

One of the elements of our Porch Renovation was to replace the old privacy wall with a fresh cedar slat planter wall (before photo here) I've outlined the product list and price below but, first a little more info on this detail of the renovation.

I went back and forth a bit on how wide to make the gaps in the slats. I wanted to make sure the cedar planter and privacy wall still received some light for the plants, as it’s completely shaded on the underside of the porch and also that a nice breeze wasn’t prohibited from cooling the porch (Denver can have surprisingly hot summer days). The trailing plants will grow out and fill in the spaces, too, so I think we landed the spacing right.

I had originally planned for a more modern type of planter pot, but the retailer is closed, due to covid and not taking online orders. In a quick hurry I picked up some cheap plastic planters from the hardware store and painted them white, until I can get the modern pots.

This week wasn’t a huge project, but sometimes just little tweaks can make a big difference, especially in a small space!


(15) 3.5" Cedar Fence Picket = $30

(1) Cedar 2x4x8' lumber = $10

(6) Planter Pots = $15

(6) Plants from local nursery = $24


FYI - If you're planning for this project, don't forget fasteners. The above doesn't include the cost of screws (which I already had) ....and to be honest, it'd take too much time to provide the break out $ of individual screws, as we've got to get moving to meet the Week 4 One Room Challenge deadline for the next phase of this renovation! :)
