If you’ve got a green thumb there is nothing more satisfying than growing your own fruits and veggies! Investing in a home garden can save you tons of money and spare you endless visits to the grocery store.
However, not all of us live in places where having a sprawling garden is a viable option. If you live in a crowded neighborhood or in an apartment building, finding even a small patch of outdoor space can be tricky.
That’s where vertical gardens come in! Turns out you don’t need a lot of space to grow your own fruits and vegetables after all. Here are some great ideas to get you started.
1. Growing a vertical garden doesn’t just solve space problems. Vertical gardens can protect your plants from animals and disease. It doesn’t need to be fancy to work, look at how this gardener used PVC pipes to form their garden.
2. This might look like stacks of window boxes, but look a little bit closer and you’ll see that this vertical garden is constructed using old gutters. Cleaning out gutters is a real pain, but not when they are jam-packed with fun plants growing in there!
3. Wooden pallets have all sorts of different uses but perhaps none so neat as serving as the frame for your vertical garden. It’s almost like watching your plants grow out of a tree!
