Building a vertical garden

As with most things, vertical gardens (or grow walls) can be simple or not so simple. I created a vertical garden for my home alfresco and I think it turned out pretty well. What do you think?

I bought the plant trough units and their instructions were straightforward:

Step 1: Choose your location and measure up

Step 2: Fix unit to wall

Step 3: Hang up the flower troughs

Step 4: Add potting mix and plant

The structure took a couple of days to build (all those plants ended up being quite heavy), then I had to link up and insert the reticulation (this is essential so you can just set and forget), and choose and pot the plants. All up it took about three days to complete. 

A vertical garden can be a great addition to a small area.

If you're thinking of doing something similar but don't know where to start, let me know

The Water's Edge originally did our landscaping on our new house 9 years ago, we were really impressed, Steve did a fantastic job with our paving and garden beds. If something didn’t look right he would fix it or suggest something else. In regard to our pool addition, The Water's Edge offered the complete package from shire approval to landscaping whereas other pool companies could not. We absolutely love sitting in our new Bali hut in summer, entertaining guests and overlooking kids having a great time splashing in the pool. Our new pool and landscaping means we relax the moment we step outside. The finished product is of a high standard.
