If you would love to have a garden but don’t have space or if you would just like to have a nice herb garden near your kitchen, the vertical garden is the answer. A vertical garden takes up very little space and has the added value of making the walls look pretty. Follow these steps to make your own.
Decide on a wall. Have a look at how and how long the sun shines on your walls. Also, consider where the nearest tap is. Once you know which wall you want your vertical garden on, you can now start measuring out your frame. You could also consider installing some sort of irrigation system for your vertical garden. If so, take that into account when choosing the location.
Drill holes and hang the frame. Drill holes where you measured and insert the screws. Now hang the frame against the wall. Safety should always be your first priority. Use a strong wood to build the frame. Your frame can be designed in any way you like. Just make sure that it will be well-balanced.
Add the flowering troughs or other flowerpots. When the frame has been secured, you can start hanging or placing the flowerpots and troughs where you want them. Be creative and try some new things. You can make it look pretty.
Add the potting mix and plants or seeds. Next, you need to fill your pots if you didn’t use already planted pots or troughs. If it is your first time gardening it is a good idea to start with plants that are already planted. You can always grow your own later when you have gained some experience.
It is really as simple as that. You can have a vertical garden in a few hours and enjoyment for many years to come. Once you have built one, you might want to build another. Have fun!
