Who says do you need a large yard to have a garden? The construction of a hanging pot rain gutters are allowed to grow fruit and vegetables that you want, keep your garden or patio space free and clear.

Level 1
Start by cutting the gutter in three separate parts that are 40 inches each, using the reciprocating saw with a metal blade.

Level 2
One covers channel ends of the batteries, to implement some sealant between the end caps and gutters to keep them in place. Fixing manhole covers for gutters applying a piece of sealant between the end caps and ramps to keep in place.

Level 3
Choose a spot in full sun are to fix the eye hooks, because it’s strawberries need to be developed. Placement eye hooks require a very sturdy wooden beam (two of four or larger). Use the drill and a 7/32 bit to drill two pilot holes in the beam. Space the holes about 27 inches away and screw eye hooks for hands. Arriving too much resistance, you can use a wrench to turn the eye hooks even deeper.

Level 4
Use 1/8 bit to drill holes in the cable channel runs through and drain holes for water to escape. For cable glands, which measures 4 1/2 inches from each side of the trench and drill three holes. The two outer holes are for the wire to pass through while the middle hole will be used for a tap-hole. Between the sets of openings in each channel, three drill holes equally spaced along the length of the average channel for drainage.

Level 5
Take a cable and thread through the two outer holes on one side of the trench, with the two ends of the wire coming from below the chute. When the thread passes through, make sure that the ends are also by keeping them together. Do the same with the other wire on the other side of the ditch.

Measure 16 inches from the base of the chute on each wire and put a clamp on each cable – you should have four wire clamp. Clips act as a “platform” where the second culvert will sit, so make sure each clip is tight.

Level 6
Chain cables through the outer holes of another chute Similarly chute remaining four clamps. Now measure 16 inches up to other cables and attach four clamps. Again, this will serve as a basis for the next part of the canal. Position the last trench on top of these clips, and then use the last two clamps to cinch the top of the cables together so that you form two loops at the top for hanging.

Level 7
Now that the cables are attached to each other, you can place them in the eye hooks to hang gutters. Once hung, the bottom of the channels with landscape fabric (optional) and about an inch of pebbles that facilitate water runoff sufficient cover.

Level 8
Add a little soil on top of the rocks and start planting strawberries on the ground. Space plants about 5 inches separate. Water completely after planting.

Be sure to water about 2 inches each week for the plant to produce a lot of strawberries. Clip all dead leaves that appear from time to time to maintain a healthy plant. Then all that’s left to do is sit back and enjoy the fruits of their labor.
