Vertical planting is a striking way of hiding a dull wall, beautifying or adding drama to your interior or exterior spaces and nesting more plants than your small yard has room for. And this is fun!

There are also plenty of other advantages in vertical gardening:
★ Convenient, no need to bend down. Easy pruning or harvesting
★ Cleaner fruit or vegetables since no longer in contact with the ground
★ Fewer insects or disease thanks to better air circulation and lighting However, keep in mind that this type of gardening requires more care. Since placed at the eye level, it needs to be nicely maintained, if not manicured. Being potentially more exposed to the sun and light, the plants may also dry out quicker and therefore require more frequent watering and fertilizing.
Easy to realize, you will need a living wall planter, which consists of a polymer unit lined with a moisture mat, and all your imagination.
Simply populate the planting cells within each unit with your favorite plants
and hang it!
Watering can be either manual or through a built-in drip line system.

Simply remember that if you opt for plants that will grow 2-3 feet out from the wall, you'll have to plant shade-tolerant species underneath.
