So what exactly are vertical gardens anyway? Simply put, a vertical garden or green wall is a method of growing plants using wall space instead of ground space, thereby saving you space!
We use reclaimed wood when we make ours because we believe in the idea of reducing, reusing and recycling to help our environment. The wood we use is perfectly safe for growing herbs and plants in your home – we ensure we only work with heat treated wood (in addition to being better for your home, it’s better for us too when we work with it!).
If you live in an apartment or in a building without a garden, this need not be a barrier to you growing your own wholesome food or abundant decorative plants to offset suburban bleakness.
Besides enhancing the visual appeal of any room, having a vertical garden makes it easier to access your plants for tending and watering – no more bad backs from bending over ground-bound greenery. Just sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labour.
Vertical gardening isn’t restricted to homes either. Your office or place of business can be greenified using this method, and can create a peaceful, organic focal point for your building which can prove to be an invaluable stress-reliever.
Vertical gardens make a lot of sense in your house – the plans oxygenate your environment and can transform a drab room into a thing of wonder.
There are many plants that are suitable for indoor growing including:
Outdoor vertical gardens make perfect sense for a range of outdoor plants and growing your own herbs. There is nothing quite like the feeling of picking your own fresh herbs to incorporate in your meals – healthy and delicious!
An outdoor vertical garden will help improve biodiversity by creating a conducive environment for birds and insects to flock to your property. Listening to the dawn chorus will bring a smile to your face, and make all the effort worthwhile.
Some suggestions to start off your external vertical garden:
That’s easy – get in touch to order a custom vertical garden from us. Let us know what size you have in mind, and we can create something for you on spec. If you are not sure of the space or need advice for some other aspect of vertical gardening, just ask us and we can help guide you through the process and have you growing your own herbs and plants in no time.
Or if you have an inclination towards DIY, and have the necessary tools and time, you could have a go at making one for yourself.
We pre-drill our vertical gardens with countersunk holes to make installation a cinch, and keep everything tidy. If you need help we can do the installation for you. Otherwise you can perform the task in hand with a decent drill, tape measure, spirit level, some rawl plugs, screws (stainless if outside) and a bit of patience.
