Vertical gardening is one of my favorite gardening subjects. I think it’s because growing vertically offers solutions to such a wide array of gardening challenges. More people are implementing vertical gardening for a number of reasons.
1) Maximize Limited Garden Space
By far, I believe the most important and common reason to grow gardens vertically is to use the space you have available. This is why vertical gardening is the solution; More and more people simply do not have the space for a traditional, in-ground vegetable garden in their backyards. As a matter of fact, a growing number of people don’t even have a yard to really speak of and are left with trying to grow veggies and herbs on their balconies, steps or rooftops.
2) Privacy Wall
Many urban and suburban homes are built so closely together that you can literally see into your neighbors windows from inside your own home and vice versa. Many also have very little privacy in whatever backyards we have to enjoy and would like to find a way to create the needed seclusion. The same technique of using trellises and arbors to create a beautiful living wall of plants that will hide unsightly areas can also be used to create a secluded area within your landscape.
3) Increase the value of your home
A well thought out landscape with defined boundaries, private settings and the beauty and softness that growing plants vertically affords can bring a little piece of country to a city home. Creating a peaceful retreat like this can substantially increase the value of your home – especially if the plants you choose offer more than just a show.
4) Keep Pets Out of Your Vegetable Patch
Maybe you have area for a small raised garden bed, but your neighborhood cats think it’s a litter box! Or does your pup love how easy it is to bury her treasures in the loose soil? With a small amount of space to garden, you certainly can’t afford to lose a portion of your plants to animals. If you have the option to increase your garden space by using vertical space such as walls, deck rails or fences then your garden becomes out of reach to your little fury ones.
