Living in a city most definitely has its perks. There’s lots of people, lots to do, lots to see – but unfortunately, the one thing that it does not have is lots of space. So, if you’re a green thumb or looking to grow your own garden for sustainable cooking then there is one simple solution to help you garden in just a little bit of space. My Garden Post vertical garden systems allows you to garden in 5 planters in just four square feet and is ideal for people living in a city with limited space.
One of the most common ways to grow a garden when space is limited is leveraging the additional space on rooftops. It gives your vegetables, plants and herbs space to grow and also direct access to sunlight. An ideal idea, all you need is space to plant your soil and your favorite plants or herbs to grow. A vertical garden system is also a great way to make the most of your space. You can grow an even larger garden by growing up rather than out. Plus, it prevents you from having the clutter of planters, so you can keep your rooftop terrace for entertaining or grilling in addition to your garden.
Even as a thriving metropolis, cities often have vast resources to help bring the community together. Despite dense populations and tight spaces, cities often house community gardens that are supported by the locals and utilized by the locals.
