52 Outstanding Vertical Garden To Green Your House

You can grow many varieties of plants with a vertical garden plan. Flowers, greenery, vegetables and fruit can all do well with vertical gardening techniques – and most of the time, yield more than a traditional, horizontal garden space.

Growing vegetables is especially easy with a growing-up garden because the veggies are off the ground and away from soil-borne diseases and pests. For those of us who love having a garden but have difficult bending and kneeling, a vertical garden is great for harvesting while standing.

Some vegetables that grow especially well in vertical gardens are cucumbers, tomatoes, peas and squash. You’ll need to be sure you’ve chosen the correct structure to support these plants as the weight of some vegetables can topple the vines.

Weeding your garden is practically non-existent and you’ll need very few supplies to keep your vertical garden green and yielding. You’ll also enjoy the fact that air circulation is better for the plants when growing upright and that watering is required less frequently.

If you’re preference is for cascading greenery or flowers, there are many varieties that do very well growing upright. Lantana, creeping phlox, trailing Impatiens and verbena make beautiful green and flowering walls.

You’ll need to consider the type of garden you’re planting (vegetable, flowers or greenery) and how much they’ll be exposed to the elements that exist in your garden. For example, will they be growing in full sun, on a trellis, arbor or shaded wall or fence?

If you’re growing plants against a brick wall, take into consideration the amount of heat that will be generated and what impact that will have on your chosen plants. Also, consider whether your garden will be perennial, evergreen or annual. Annuals such as some flowering vines grow fast, but your garden will be without foliage during certain times of the year.
