Vertical Gardens – Less Space, More Yield

Indoor and outdoor vertical gardens are becoming more sophisticated thanks to more advances in technology that are making it easier. More gardeners are choosing the “growing up” method to get more yield out of their gardens.

Types Of Vertical Garden Structure

Most gardeners are unfamiliar with the hydroponic, stacked and structural methods of vertical gardens, although they may have used trellises, walls, fences and arbors to grow various plants and vines upward.

Manufacturers of vertical gardening systems incorporate watering, fertilizing and draining systems into their creations, making it easy for the vertical gardener to maintain after the unit is set up.

One of the most exciting aspects of vertical gardening is that a very small amount of space can be used to grow an incredible amount of fruits and vegetables, making it a perfect answer for going green in urban settings. There’s certainly more vertical space than horizontal in our world, and many vertical systems are portable – able to move indoors or outdoors - depending on the weather.

Where To Plant The Garden!

There’s a little more to consider if you’re planning an indoor vertical garden. Lighting is a factor, but most problems can be solved with an innovative design and lighting especially for indoor plant growth. Outdoor vertical gardens are extremely popular in cities and areas where space is limited. Plants, flowers and trees can beautify almost any “dead” space, making a visual impact that’s similar to a fine piece of art.

Growing vegetables and fruits in “sky farms” is fast becoming a more viable option in the heart of cities than having them imported from outlying farms – and the yield is phenomenal when the plants grown “up” rather than having direct contact with soil.

Creating A Vertical Garden

A quick online search will give you an idea about the many types and sizes of vertical gardens available. They also vary in price – so, you can begin with a more manageable and less expensive style and then progress to a larger medium when you’re ready.

Before you purchase a medium for your vertical garden, do your research and make sure you’re getting quality for what you pay for. You don’t want to do all the preparation, purchase plants and be so proud of what you’ve created only to have it collapse or be entirely different than what was promised.

Look at photos of vertical gardens that have already been created and that are flourishing in cities, on patios and anywhere there’s limited space for a garden. One online search will yield so many ideas that it will be difficult to choose.

Vertical gardening makes you think about walls, fences and plants in an entirely different and innovative way. If you have a blank wall, fence or patio that’s lacking style and greenery, give it a boost with vertical gardening techniques that are designed especially to cover up, add beauty or feed a family.
