Having a garden where you can plant flowers, fruits, herbs or vegetables is for many people a dream that just can't be fulfilled because they simply don't have the space. But now that dream can become a reality with the help of a very clever idea: wall gardens.
Yes, that's right, you can now have a garden on a wall. Before building your own wall garden you are going to need to do some research to learn more about the plants you want to grow, but also to learn how to actually build it.
We can tell you that you should build the frame and fill it before putting it on the wall. Once secured, you can add your flower or your pots. There are special containers that you can buy but if you are looking for something more improvised, you can use old plastic bottles or recycled cans. When it comes to a wall garden, imagination is the key.
Besides flowers, some of the best things you can grow on a vertical garden are herbs. They are not only good for your food but also for your health. Your garden doesn't need to be big, just plant the things you need.
