If you have ever wanted a garden with plants that look like they are growing up straight up, you can have that in your garden with vertical garden design. The vertical garden is becoming more popular as people realize how easy it is to grow things from a higher elevation. If you are someone who likes to be in the outdoors but you have a small balcony or deck, you may want to consider incorporating a vertical garden.
A vertical garden can give you more room to grow your favorite vegetables, herbs, flowers or fruits. You can design yours with a trellis system so that you can hang baskets of fresh greens and blossoms from the branches. The most common way to display these greens is to go up in the trellis system with baskets that you can reach. You can then move the baskets closer together by only using a small portion of the trellis. This will give you even more space to grow your favorite vegetables.
You can create the illusion that the basket of fruits and vegetables is floating in the air just like a butterfly. This way you can create a stunning centerpiece on your patio table or other outdoor area to enhance the beauty of your garden. It makes a nice focal point for your dinner parties or for an area of your backyard that has a very relaxing and calming effect.
With vertical garden systems, you have so many options of where to put them. It is important to have the right amount of space to be able to support the weight of the plants. If you have a large space, the best option would be to put the tallest plants at the back of your house. Then you can spread the tallest ones out over the rest of the space. If you only have a small space, you can put some of the smaller vertical garden structures on corners or along the walls.
Some of the plants that can be grown successfully in this manner include clematis, daffodils, lilies, roses, herbs, and tomatoes. You can also include pansies, apricots, pumpkins, grapes, and squash among other fruits and vegetables. Just remember that space should always be given to accommodate your plants. They should not be crowded out of the available space.
Vertical garden systems are also easy to take care of because the main concern is always about the water supply. The soil should be filled with water daily so that the plants will be kept healthy. You can also plant some ornamentals in your garden to add color and elegance. The possibilities of a vertical garden design are really endless. You can create the perfect garden no matter what your budget or gardening experience is.
