Flower Street Urban Gardens has been working with the Cornish Pasty in Phoenix for quite a few years now and recently got the opportunity to create hanging gardens to complement their beautiful new outdoor dining deck space at their restaurant in Flagstaff.
The installation in Flagstaff is quite different than the downtown Phoenix installation which has vertical garden planters along the outer wall of the building. We wanted to show you how easy it is to install our vertical gardens on a typical wooden fence.
We ensure the hanging garden brackets are attached to the vertical fence posts, if necessary, additional support can be added to secure a bracket.
Another important aspect of installing hanging gardens on a fence and deck is the irrigation system and water. We have hidden irrigation lines that come from behind the fence and up to keep the plants and flowers watered.
We want to ensure that we do not cause any water damage to the wood so we have drainage catch trays that collect any excess water. Each day the trays can be easily removed, and dump the water back into the hanging garden and hang the trays back up. This keeps the deck nice and clean as well as conserves water.
We are so pleased with this install on this beautiful wooden fence. Our Flower Street Urban Gardens vertical hanging gardens look great with the wood and the fence and the deck. Thank you Cornish Pasty in Flagstaff!

Cornish Pasty Flagstaff (Video Transcript below)
Hey everybody! Alex here with Flower Street Urban Gardens. We just completed setting everything up here. This is a Cornish Pasty in Flagstaff Arizona. You know we love the uh Cornish Pasty’s who do all of them down in Phoenix area as well as this one up here in Flagstaff.
It’s a little bit different up here because like a lot of you guys that reach out to us asking about how to install the gardens this is a perfect example of installing the gardens on a typical wooden fence.
Now this basically, I would consider this the inside because you got all the beautiful boards on the inside. On the outside you can see up here you’ve got the 2×4 structures. Now these are six feet on center and then behind is uh the 2×4 that all of the vertical fence pickets are attached to.
That’s exactly where we wanted to attach our brackets right into that 2×4 now if the span is a lot greater you may want to add an additional board or if this isn’t going to be the proper height for you, you may want to add another board not to secure the fence to but just to secure the garden to.
You can see how well this works. Also, we have the little drainage catch trays as well. They just installed this beautiful redwood deck, it’s brand new they haven’t even sealed it yet. So what we’ve done is we’ve installed our little catch trays.
This is going to be great because what they’ll be able to do early in the morning when the servers get here is they’ll be able to come around and just dump these back right into the gardens. We’ll keep everything nice and clean on the new redwood deck.
So as you can see here we have the irrigation, the spaghetti lines, coming from the outside so we have the water source over here we were able to bring that underneath the deck and to split that in basically two different areas for us.
It runs behind the fence pickets and in front of these posts right by the 2x4s and then we just plugged in the spaghetti line, brought it through and then ran it into the gardens just like we always do with them.
So here we have 6-foot two-tiered gardens and over on this section here we’ve got our 4-four foot two-tiered gardens and they look beautiful. They look great with the with the wood and the fence and the deck.
I wanted to be able to show you guys how you can install these on virtually anything and especially a wooden fence so again this is Alex with Flower Street Urban Gardens see you next time.
