Garden wall planters are a great way of increasing growing space, especially in smaller spaces like patios, balconies and terraces. They come in all shapes and sizes from individual planters up to entire wall-coverings. Garden wall planters are perfect for trailing plants, succulents and annuals and can be used to brighten up unattractive walls or fences.
