How to Hang a Flower Planter


A flower planter adds a new dimension to garden landscaping. In areas where soil diseases prevent gardeners from enjoying certain crops, such as strawberries, the flower planter provides fresh, disease-free soil and a hanging environment for the plants. Properly hanging a flower planter ensures that it will hold up against most typical weather conditions.

Step 1

Determine the general location for the flower planter and run a stud finder around the area until you locate a stud. Mark the stud with a pencil.

Step 2

Drill a hole with a power drill and a drill bit one size smaller than the threads on the hanging hook.

Step 3

Screw the hanging hook into place.

Step 4

Hang the flower planter on the hook.
