Benefit of vertical garden
“Vertical gardening is an innovative, effortless, and highly productive growing system that uses bottom-up and top-down supports for a wide variety of plants in both small and large garden spaces.”
– Derek Fell, author Vertical Gardening: Grow Up, Not Out for More Vegetables & Flowers in Much Less Space
Maximise Limited Space : Increase growing space especially when it is at a premium in a very tiny area.
Grow a Privacy Screen: Screen or disguise unwanted views (like boxy air conditioners and unattractive garden structures like sheds or compost bays), nosy neighbours and create more privacy.
Increase Accessibility: Plants are easier to reach – makes fertilising, watering, pruning and harvesting much more convenient and saves your back.
Nurture Healthier Plants : Getting plants up and off the ground improves air circulation = healthier plants and less pest & disease problems. It also minimises damage due to pets or wild animals digging up gardens on the ground.
Enhance Visual Appeal : Improve the beauty of your garden and increase ‘curb appeal’ by adding character, variety, structure and colour. Create ‘eye candy’ by planting at eye level with vertical garden structures like hanging baskets and window boxes.
Grow More Plants : Expand the number and kind of plants you can grow in your garden. Some vegetables like pumpkins that grow on vines and take up a lot of personal space, can be trained to grow up and over a trellis in a very compact space.
Reduce the Impact of an Urban Environment : Soften hard or stark building and landscape surfaces by camouflaging with living green walls and other vertical design features.
Research by the Centre for Sustainable Development at the University of Cambridge has found that “a layer of vegetation can reduce heat loss from buildings, cutting the wind chill factor by 75% and heating demand by 25%.”
Define a Space : Create an entrance, backdrop or framework; define boundaries and edges; and provide a sense of enclosure or seclusion
Create a Micro Climate: A living natural shield can insulate a building (from heat, air pollution or noise) and help to regulate temperature by cooling and shading an area. You can also create a micro climate by adding a vertical structure like a tepee, trellis, pergola, arbor, arch or A-frame that will provide shade below. The cooler spot under the support will suit shade-loving plants and sun worshippers will thrive climbing up and over so you get the best of both worlds.
Improve Air Quality and your Health: Research has revealed that plants improve both indoor and outdoor air quality by removing harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and absorbing pollutants. Houses have been found to have consistently poorer air quality indoors than out, even with external pollution. So growing plants vertically even in compact spaces like windowsills, balconies, front entrances and hanging in aerial space will make a BIG difference to your health.
