Vertical gardening not only saves space, but it also saves your back when it comes to watering, weeding and maintaining your plants and flowers. There are other benefits as well, including being able to add more plants to your existing garden, plus being able to showcase your plants in more creative ways. It's also super easy to change out your plants with the seasons without having to dig down in the dirt.
Whether you plant annuals or perennials, there are so many exciting ways to increase your curb appeal with vertical planters. They're also usually mobile, so you're not stuck like when you plant in the same spot in the yard so that you can move them around according to their sun/water needs. So, let's get started with some vertical gardening inspiration!
