Home Garden

Fresh greens provide more health benefits than dried spices. Most herbs are not whimsical. They can be grown at home, which will help provide the family with natural vitamins all year round. Making a hanging rack for plants is not at all difficult with the help of improvised tools.

Selection of materials

Shelves require natural boards. It does not make sense to use pressed wood, because plants will have to be watered periodically. The high hygroscopicity of solid wood boards is a slight drawback if the board is treated with antifungal impregnation, which reduces the level of water absorption in the fibers, before installing the plants. For work it is most profitable to take coniferous wood. The most unsuitable type of tree for work is birch. Such a board can break when drilling, and even during operation in a room where humidity and air temperature often change, this material is more susceptible to deformation. To connect the shelves will require a nylon rope. It will last longer than other types, it is easy to work with it. If the style of the room requires this, you can use a hemp rope. Its main disadvantage is that the smells absorbed in it, settle in the kitchen forever. As hangers, it is best to choose mounting and decorative hooks. They are sold with dowels. Given the need for periodic maintenance of shelves, which is best carried out outside the kitchen, in addition to the hooks, you can use 2 monolithic stainless steel rings. Plastic will not work because of the weight of the structure!

Progress

Choosing a wall that is exposed to direct sunlight for a minimum time per day. We recede from the most shaded corner, we measure a site which will be occupied by shelves. This will be the necessary length of the main elements of the suspension rack. Noting on the wall the points of the edges of the upper shelf, gently indent 5 cm inwards, make notes, put the same distance of 30-35 cm away from them. This will be the place for drilling for the installation of hooks that hold the weight of the structure. Warning! Hooks should be no thinner than 8 mm, the length of the part screwed into the dowel is not less than 8 cm. The more massive the shelves and the larger the pots with the soil, the harder the fastening elements are. The distance between the shelves is determined by the maximum possible height of plants with an allowance of 10-15 cm. Their width depends on the selected diameter of the pots, under which it is necessary to cut openings. The distance from the edge and the wall to the hole must not be less than 3 cm. Tools that are indispensable:
  • Drill;
  • 12 mm diameter drill bit for wood;
  • diameter drill bit suitable for wall anchor hooks
  • jigsaw electric with laser pointer;
  • plane,
  • grinding machine or sandpaper with several fractions of abrasive grain.
The beginning of work begins with the processing of wood with a planer and a grinder. External corners need to be rounded and polished. From all 4 sides drill holes for the cord. The distance from the edges of the board is the same - 2.5-3 cm, even if the manufacture of a rack in the form of a slide. In this case, the option is allowed.when the lower element may differ from the upper one by a quarter of the length.

The pre-prepared elements should be marked for pots. The distance between them is preferable to choose 10-15 cm, so the plants will receive a sufficient amount of light. Having drawn circles, it remains to drill a hole inside the circle so that a jigsaw can be inserted into it. Having made a cut to the line of a circle, it is necessary to carefully cut out the holes in the stands, to treat them with a sandpaper (first large, and at the final stage, zero).

Prepared wooden elements are fastened together with nylon cords (2 on each side) with the help of volumetric knots that exceed the size of the hole. For greater reliability in them, you can embed additional wooden or plastic decorative elements. So under the influence of the weight of shelves and pots, the knot will not become critically small.

For rigid fixation, the knots are tied both under the shelf and above it. This option requires more effort when adjusting the horizontal arrangement of the elements. The selected step of fixing the shelves is set by the segments between the nodes on the part of the cord located near the wall. The outer part will be slightly longer, which is determined by the width of the upper element.The top shelf is attached directly to the hooks, after which it can be removed and secured lower, using a ruler.

Hanging the shelves on the hooks, you only need to insert the spice seedlings planted in the holes in the pots, to add kitchen fluorescent lamps to the interior, because in the winter season natural lighting will be sorely lacking.
