What is a Vertical Garden?

Posted by

What is a vertical garden? It is exactly what it sounds like, it is a garden that grows vertically, rather than horizontally in the ground. Vertical gardens come in an assortment of designs and styles, shapes and sizes - which makes it as versatile as needed. A vertical garden allows gardeners who don’t have a lot of space to still grow their favorite fruits, vegetables, herbs and more.

Styles of Vertical Gardens

There are a variety of styles of vertical gardens, it all really depends on your personal style, space, and area to find the right one for you. That’s one of the reasons why a vertical garden is an ideal garden – you can grow on a patio, deck, porch, or even inside your home. No matter how much space you have available, it is still possible to grow a full garden in a space even as small as 4 square feet. My Garden Post vertical garden is an innovative, new vertical garden that has 5 planters (both large and small) that attach to a post and allow you to grow an entire garden in 4 square feet. The vertical garden is set on casters, and comes with an optional drip irrigation – so it’s flexible and easy to take care of (easier than a full garden)!

DIYvertical gardens are another popular choice for people looking to grow a garden with limited space, plus they make great décor.

Benefits of Vertical Gardens

If you enjoy gardening and growing your own ingredients, then a vertical garden is a great and affordable option. For city-dwellers, finding the right space or even the time to grow an entire garden, but with a vertical garden – you can grow herbs, veggies, fruits, and so much more within steps of your kitchen. Get the freshest ingredients for your meals with a vertical garden.

Now, if you are senior gardener – then vertical gardens make the most sense for maintaining your garden with little effort.
