Vertical gardening is a unique way to take advantage of the space in your garden. Whether you’re working within the confines of an apartment balcony, a small backyard, or just looking to improve your home’s visual appeal, vertical gardens come in many shapes, sizes, and configurations. Growing a thriving vertical garden requires sturdy support and a wall that has access to plenty of sunlight. Furthermore, plants need to be placed within reach for proper care. Once you’ve checked off all those boxes, grab your plants and soil and start building!Garden Wall With cedar posts, wiring, and pots, you can easily create a vertical garden that also functions as a privacy screen. Fill little clay pots with plants of your choosing, hang them from the netting, and you’ve got a garden wall! The wiring will also support airflow through the garden, keeping your outdoor space cool. Recycled PotsIf you have pallets, paint cans, or even soda bottles, recycle and reuse them for pots. This idea is perfect for renters or budget-conscious homeowners who can’t replace a fence but want to cover the eyesore. Attach the recycled pots to the fence with hooks, allowing them to move easily. Make sure to drill holes for drainage and face the wall towards the sun. Gutter GardenBuild a vertical garden from a rain gutter for a low-cost option. Before planting, add drainage holes to the gutter to prevent water from being clogged up. Along with a bright coat of paint, use plants that can grow in a 4-inch pot such as salad greens, strawberries, chives, or mint! Wooden FrameRecycle your old picture frames and give your garden the feeling of artwork by surrounding them with frames. Succulents require minimal effort to maintain and are the perfect plant for this option. After planting, grow the garden flat for a few weeks to let plants root and anchor into the soil. When it is time to water, lay the planter flat and spray with a gentle mist. Shoe Organizer An over-the-door pocket organizer takes on a new function as a backyard planter. Fill each pocket with soil, and put a plant in each sleeve. The canvas material allows water to drain, thereby preventing root rot. Hang the cloth planter on a sunny wall outside. These vertical garden ideas prove that a great garden is possible, no matter if you have a big or small yard. Which one was your favorite?
