Vertical Gardening Ideas 2015

Nowadays there are so many options for creating a vertical garden. We’ve seen everything from a simple ladder with planks to a custom-built wall corner installed in the yard. Vertical Garden Towers are great when you don’t have a lot of space. Just like cities, go tall with your plants and veggies. Today we’ll be exploring some of the newer and more unusual solutions that exist for vertical gardening.

Tower Garden™, the aeroponic vertical gardening system, is a neat way to grow fruits, vegetables and herbs. Working with water, air and specially formulated nutrients, the Tower Garden is perfect for sunny rooftops, patios and balconies. You can probably put this on casters for rotating and easier relocation.

The PVC Pipe idea is really fun. Backyard Gardening Fun has a great tutorial that shows how to create and install a strawberry tower that will yield a whole lot more than one plant in the ground.

The Vertical Sunset Garden Tower, which we recently discovered, is another interesting idea. With a more architectural look, this includes a basin at the top that drains down to supply your plants with irrigation.

Have fun exploring all the different options and create a fabulous tall garden this season.
