The New Horizontal: Why We’re Loving Vertical Gardens

With an increase in urban population comes limited access to expansive natural greenery and vegetation. With more and more people living in apartments and inner city terrace houses the less space there is for horizontal garden beds or lawns. We’ve seen the trend of indoor pot plants blow up and bring that bit of greenery back into our urban lives. However, this doesn’t mean that you should stop there. Modern problems require modern solutions, therefore, you can switch your focus from planter boxes and garden beds to the vertical space you DO have. Vertical gardens don’t require nearly as much space as horizontal ones. Green up urban city walls and enjoy the benefits of a little more nature in your space. These gardens can also help in reducing your own carbon footprint and support the ecosystem. An outdoor vertical garden is a versatile option that can be tailored to fit your specific needs. 

Vertical Gardens

 

Here is why we’re loving outdoor gardens so much:

Low Cost, High Impact:

Vertical gardens and particularly artificial ones are a cost-effective way to green up any space. Choosing the right plants for your vertical garden means you can cut maintenance and watering right down as opposed to a large garden that will require a lot more TLC. The structure of your vertical garden can also double as a way of maintaining it. From irrigation to self watering materials you can make your vertical garden look after itself while saving you time and money without sacrificing aesthetics. Vertical gardens will often have a bigger visual impact on a space than if they were horizontal.You can have less plants at eye level on your wall and it will still hold a big presence in your space.

Lesser Risk:

Pests or diseases and animals that commonly attack your plants are far less of a worry when you grow them in a vertical setting. Keeping your plants up off the ground will protect them. This means you can have healthier plants with half the effort or money spent on protecting them. Your plants will also be less likely to be damaged up off the ground. You’ll never have to worry about kids or pets trampling your vertical garden. 

Enhanced Visual Appeal:
