What do you think of vertical gardening? , which is a very attractive and practical trend that makes sure that we are able to grow different kinds of plants like creepers , flowering plants,bushy plants etc in a limited space , on your gate , a front wall , an entire wall ..
Its a good concept. It make maximum utilization of the available spaces. But I feel that people needs to be more creative in adopting vertical gardens as they have limited choice of plants that they can grow.
I like the idea of vertical garden and it is a quite good idea for commercial places where there is space constraint. It adds aesthetic value too to the place and they have enough resources to maintain it. For home, I find it good if you have a place to do so without interfering with the practicality of the place and then you should be on your toes to maintain it. Otherwise it becomes a mess. And also I feel that we have a limited plants and mostly ornamental ones which will thrive well in a vertical arrangement and space constraint.
I have less space on my terrace and so I have opted for steps made out of iron to accommodate more pots and also for easier maintenance as it is easy to clean in the lower spaces.
