Why You Might Want Hang Fence Planter Boxes on Your Fence

When it comes to DIY fence planter boxes, many are made from wood.
While wood is a great building product.
The problem with wood (for planter boxes) is that it can rot quickly as it’s exposed to moisture from the soil.
Plus, the cost of lumber has increased quite a bit.
Now, let’s talk about plastic.
But not just any plastic…
