What Materials Are Needed For A Vertical Garden

Vibrant foliage, flourishing colors, and an abundance of life – are just some of the benefits of vertical gardens. To get started, you’ll need to assemble the following materials:

 – Baskets or wall-mounted containers: Find baskets or containers that fit your space and hold soil. Drainage holes are recommended

 – Plants: Choose a range of species that thrive in similar conditions

 – Potting soil mixture: Good quality potting soil allows for fast growth and excellent drainage

 – Optional Accessories: Trellis supports, drip irrigation systems, shade cloths for delicate plants 

Once you have gathered these items, it’s time to start building your garden. Start by finding a spot with plenty of sunlight. Create pockets for soil by laying out the material carefully over the defined area. Securely attach any supports like a trellis if needed.

Before adding plants, blend a nutrient-rich potting mix with organic compost in each container. When adding your plants choose appropriate combinations that look balanced together but also provide enough room for adequate growth. Water regularly to establish good root structure and fertilize every other month to enter into the growing season. 

For maintenance, keep an eye out for pests and diseases that may affect your garden, like mildews & aphids; control them as soon as they arrive with natural pesticides like insecticidal soaps or horticultural oils. And create a schedule where you can clean debris from around plants at least once every month. With these steps, you will be able to maintain an impressive vertical garden in no time!
