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. You don’t have to bend, kneel or weed your garden, especially if you use a My Garden Post vertical garden. The innovative design makes it easy to grow, maintain and harvest. Plus, it comes with a drip irrigation and timer – so you can set the irrigation and forget it. So carefree!

A vertical garden could also be a great learning tool for classrooms. Encourage your students to learn about the benefits of growing and eating their own food. Students can learn about soil composition, growing plants, different types of herbs, vegetable benefits and so much more. And best of all, a vertical garden can fit within the corner of a classroom. Students will get the hands-on experience that can benefit them in the future and you have a useful classroom tool!

Why You Need a Vertical Garden

You may have either grown a traditional garden or never gardened at all, but a vertical garden is a great idea no matter what! As a veteran or newbie gardener, a vertical garden makes it so simple to grow herbs, vegetables and fruits in any space.
