Not everyone has a lot of space for a garden. While it’s great to have a big lot where you can plant rows of crops or grow an entire flower bed, that isn’t always possible. So, if you’re tight on space but want to enjoy you having plants to care for, here are some lovely vertical garden ideas that are easy to make.

This is a super cool DIY project that not only looks amazing but is also super creative. It just goes to show that you don’t need to buy something that’s beautiful and practical.
To get this look, you do need to do some work. The good news is, it can be a DIY project you and your kids and enjoy spending time on.
If you have a large blank wall around your home that needs some sprucing up, why not use decorative pots?

Whether you decide to plant flowers of the same kind or different species, that’s all up to you.

What’s great about pallet gardens is that you get to choose the size and look of the pallet. You also get to paint or decorate it any way you want.
Hanging gutters are much easier to set up than they look. What’s great about them is you can set them up anywhere there’s a wall or high fence. This lets you add some décor to otherwise boring surfaces.
The gutters not only let you hold the soil and plants, they’re also ideal for retaining water. After all, that’s what they do.

Flowers in Baskets
Loving doing DIY woodwork? Why not create a wall of wooden baskets. This is not only beautiful but it also lets you show off your woodworking skills and creativity.
Using wooden baskets, you can set up an entire wall garden of different plants. This gives you the creative freedom to use one or different plants since each basket has a life of its own.
Another way to stacking plants vertically is to do them in checkerboard style. This is an amazing arrangement that lets you use the crates and plants as design.
While the structure is eye catching on its own, the flowers, veggies or herbs will also get peoples’ attention. This is one cool way of using both the plants and the boxes to make art at home.
