For apartment gardening, a vertical garden on the terrace has the added advantage of allowing you to enjoy the fresh air, sunshine and fresh herbs that are essential for apartment gardening. When using a vertical garden on the terrace, the gardener gets more sunlight and even gets some unexpected shade from those above. When planning your vertical garden, you have several options. You can keep the plants to a minimum height to avoid crowding of the soil or use the plants to break up the vertical lines of the building. Plants that grow taller than they’re naturally tall can be used in containers.
Vertical container gardening is an easy way to fill in a gap in your home. You can plant low-growing plants like fuchsias or daffodils at the bottom and tall-growing plants like gerberas or sunflowers at the top. These plants will fill in any empty space no matter how much of an open area is left inside your house. Container gardening also offers an inexpensive way to add life and color to any vacant wall or blank walls that are in need of sprucing up.
You can also use vertical gardens to bring new life to otherwise drab walls. Plants like clematis, daffodil, lily, dundale, lily-of-the-valley, marigold, blueberry, and geraniums can be used. Other plants like cosmos, begonias, azalea, cherry blossom, daisy, verbena, sunflower, tulips and snapdragon can also be used.
You can also use hanging baskets instead of containers for this type of garden. Hanging baskets make good plants for balconies and verandas. The best part is that you can easily move the basket around to wherever it’s needed most. The best plants for hanging baskets are those that grow tall. Examples are geraniums, sunflowers and pansies. However, beware of termites as they might get into your hanging baskets.
Your terrace can also be turned into a natural green roof. You can plant grass and flowers that would grow well on the terrace. These plants can be grown in pots on the ground and then put into a small vertical garden on the terrace. This type of gardening is suitable for apartment dwellers who do not have room for a large garden.
Another popular method of gardening on a terrace is to grow vegetables that can be used outside. These plants include cucumbers, tomatoes, herbs, strawberries, herbs and leafy vegetables such as peas, carrots, and corn. These can be grown in hanging containers on the ground where they can be directly moved in case of bad weather. These plants are great for people who live in areas that experience droughts. They can still provide plenty of vegetables during these times.
One thing to remember is that the roots of some plants will need to be taken care of in order for them to grow properly. If you do not do this, the roots may break off and die leaving your vegetables without any nutrients. To solve this problem you can dig a small hole beneath your containers. Then place the plants that need extra care in the hole. This will provide them with all the nutrients they need.
Having a vertical garden on your home’s patio will provide an added feature that can be fun to look at. You can create your own private outdoor area with your own garden. Your friends and family will think you’re really cool when you show off your garden. There are many types of plants you can grow on a vertical garden and all you need is a little bit of gardening know-how and a bit of patience.
