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

We love the great pool design as it's part of the house with excellent views from inside the home. Very happy with the pool and service.
