Home Depot’s Flower Tower: Equipment List, Bloopers and Sword Fight

This post is part of a sponsored series from the Home Depot.

Yes! Even give the crazy weather and all its moving around, my Flower Tower from the Home Depot Garden Club is thriving! I actually think it has adapted to life in Denver, or perhaps it’s made friends with the dog.


Alas everything comes to an end, at the end of many things come the credits. Or the bloopers. Not to mention a Star Wars-esque sword fight.

Now, for reals. How many of you said, while watching the video: So THAT is how she pronounces her last name??? I know. Everyone is surprised.


As I have mentioned, this project is great for beginners and also doesn’t take a ton of equipment.

Here is a handy list for you to print out and take to the Home Depot with you:

(1) Yardguard 4 ft. x 50 ft. 14-Gauge Welded Wire (we cut this down shorter)
(1) Scotts 4 ft. x 120 ft. Landscape Fabric
(1) Wiss Tinner’s Snips
(1) Tenax 7 in. Black Fence Ties – 50 Pack
(1) Garden Spade
(1) Large Flower Pot
(1) Utility Knife
(1-2) Bags Potting Soil
Plants (as needed, we used 2 flats)
Work Gloves


Here’s what’s cool about the Flower Tower. We did it as a family from beginning to end. Even during the decision to do this as a sponsored project, we sat down and agreed we wanted to do it together and have fun doing it. Then we built it together, have taken care of it in all this weird April snow (4 more inches are coming tonight), and my boys even helped me edit the videos I have posted. Together.

Every time I played back the “Luke, I am your father” bit, Dex snort-laughed.

So, yes, we are really looking forward to summer, when temperatures in Denver will soar over 100 and we will be yearning for some snowflakes to cool us off. We have already started mapping out what we will do in the backyard, in our small raised urban garden, and with all my other potted planted on the patio.

AND we’re looking forward to being masters of our gardening universe. Thanks Home Depot!

    Haha, the video cracked me up. And YES. Had no idea that is how you say your name.

    Looks like you guys had a blast creating the flower tower & the final product is really beautiful. Oh yeah, & I love that song that you used in the video, Bop Skizzum is great!

    A) I knew how to pronounce your last name. My husband was in the Army with someone with your last name. I didn’t realize that people had a hard time pronouncing it.

    B) OMG, the video. LOL I have to admit, I hate watching videos. I just do. I almost never click. But your teaser on your last name made me click and then I watched the whole thing.

    C) I really, really want to make one of these, so I’m forwarding this whole post to my husband. I had mentioned a flower tower to him last week and he looked at me like I had four heads.

    “in your zone” – I love that word, zone. I’m really sure you’re trying to say “in your mental state” or something, which is absolutely something I can relate to. Sometimes I want to plant zucchini and other times it’s perennials. Depends on my “zone”. Oh, and I really want to make a few of these this weekend after the snow finishes. Our little courtyard backyard needs some color!
