Creating Your Own Vertical Garden

Vertical Garden

Do you dream of a lush, expansive garden but lack the space to make it a reality? Fear not! Vertical gardens exist, and they are the perfect space-saving way to bring some greenery into your life, even if all you have is a small backyard or balcony. Read on for some tips on what to plant, and a step-by-step guide to build your own vertical garden.

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting which varieties to fill your planters with. You can choose from delicious herbs, eye-catching and fragrant flowers, succulents or creepers, or go bold and opt for a mixture of many. Perennial plants are a great low-maintenance option, as they continue to grow year after year after laying dormant during the winter months.

In fact, here is a list of the top ten plants suitable for vertical gardens.

  • Ferns. Great for adaptability and humidity resistance.
  • Bromeliads. Shallow roots make them easy to grow in compact spaces.
  • Bird Nest Fern. Lives easily in small containers.
  • Pothos and Devil’s Ivy. Trailing vines are great for filling gaps and spreading quickly.
  • Lipstick plant.
  • Succulents.
  • Dracaena.
  • Crotons. Will flourish in low or high light, but leaves will be larger and more pigmented in bright light.
  • Husta (prefers cooler climate and plenty of shade).Striking green leaves and a mixture of white and purple flowers in summertime – beautiful!
  • Baby’s tears. Gives a delicate and soft appearance to your vertical garden.

Vertical gardens don’t just look great, they do great things for the environment as well!
As our cities become more corded and dependant on apartment-style living, fewer of us have access to garden space. Vertical gardens can help reduce your carbon footprint by filtering pollutants and carbon monoxide from the air. They also reduce heat absorption, which can result in massive energy savings when summer comes around and most of us rely on air conditioning to keep us cool.

There you have it! Feeling inspired to build your own? Follow the step by step guide here:
