Many of us dream of having a beautiful garden growing right outside our windows. We love the idea of being able to look out and see plants and flowers blooming all around us. We also love the feeling of fresh, healthy food on our plates and the wonderful aroma it gives off. You’re probably familiar with the concept of a balcony or patio garden. But vertical gardens are much more effective than a traditional garden because they allow you to grow a lot more food with less space.
A vertical garden is a large planting structure, usually with some type of enclosure or trellis, which holds plants growing vertically. It can be used as a decorative element in gardens, a container for a small indoor or outdoor plant, or a part of a larger landscape plan. Vertical gardens are becoming increasingly popular, especially among urban residents, who are interested in landscaping. In some cities, you can even find a public space dedicated entirely to vertical gardens.
