5 Reasons Why You Should Consider A Vertical Garden

1.You Can Grow Plants In A Limited Space

Love growing plants but don’t have space? You can't use that excuse anymore, consider setting up a Vertical garden, it is a great option if you are tight on space.

Vertical gardening is gaining more popularity in urban cities because of its convenience and space-saving benefits. Whether you want to grow food or you want a splash of colors and enjoy fresh flowers, all can be done using a vertical garden.

Growing your own food using a vertical garden is not that difficult with some planning and the right product. If you live in a warmer climate, you can keep your vertical garden system on the patio or porch. During winter just take it inside when it gets really cold. You will have your own fresh salads growing in your own kitchen.

2.Maintance And Accessibility

Since the vertical garden is “vertical” by design, it is easily accessible, you can easily harvest your vegetables by mostly standing up. It’s easy to check on your plants without getting yourself dirty.

Since your plants are off the ground, they will be safe from most of the pest infestation issues and weed issues faced by more traditional gardens. Because of the increased airflow leaves will dry faster and this will prevent fungus that thrives in moisture.

Another added benefit is that your plants will be cleaner because there won't be soil splashing or animals walking on your plants. And if you have a drip irrigation system installed in your vertical garden, you don’t even have to worry about watering.

The best thing about the vertical garden is, you can actually move the garden without digging or pulling the plants out.

This is an added benefit when it comes to getting inadequate sunlight for the plants. You can place the vertical garden system according to the sunlight requirements of your plants. Unlike traditional gardening, where you have to plant according to sun exposure. For example, Herbs like Thai basil and watercress can be grown in less light. If your vertical garden gets medium light consider planting lettuce, rocket, basil, Bee Balm, cilantro, parsley, and chives. In full sun, you can grow cherry tomatoes, thyme, sage, rocket, and silverbeet.

Moving? No problem! a vertical garden can move with you.
