Kokubunji Hanging Garden

This lush road facing garden has a hanging component which demonstrates a number of ways to use wire to fix pot plants in precise locations.

In the third image, wire is threaded through an opening on the rim of one pot, and twisted around the window grate to secure it in place. Nearby, wire is twisted directly around the hook of a larger hanging pot to place it at the desired level. Below, in the fourth image, a more secure hanging construction is formed by wrapping wire around the pot, under the rim and then attaching a larger hook made of wire arching over the top.

Materials: Wire
Location: Kokubunji, Tokyo

The Takeaway: Wire is a key item in the urban gardener’s arsenal.
