If you’re interested in gardening but have limited space, then vertical gardening maybe just for you. As a wonder of modern agricultural technology, vertical gardens are also known as green walls, live walls, moss walls, and more. 

Setting up a vertical garden is fairly inexpensive and completely customizable since materials such as tin cans, clay pots, custom wooden planters, copper pipe planters, different colored boxes, and more can be used to create depth. Anyone with access to a wall and planting materials can engage in it. 

With any other garden, the vertical counterparts also require sunlight, water, and proper ventilation. As for the greenery, a wide range of plants from herbs to succulents can be planted in vertical gardens.

Another benefit of vertical gardening is being easy to maintain. Apart from watering according to the plant requirements, it’s necessary to introduce nutrients to the soil from time to time. Compost and organic fertilizer will provide good results for soil-based vertical gardens. Removing dead leaves and pruning is also needed for garden maintenance. 

By following the basic gardening principles, constructing a vertical garden will open up new possibilities in terms of space-saving, beauty, and freshness.
