Containers can be extracted and collected to make different designs according to your preferences. They can range from plastics to metals depending on the space you have and, what you intend to plant in your garden. Decorative containers can be used to make vertical gardens more beautiful depending on their location. You would love to have a vegetable garden but your studio apartment might be small and not accommodate your plants. In this case, you are required to choose a vertical garden not only focusing on the utility of these gardens but also their creative potential. People ignore the creative potential which is a significant aspect because it helps determine the growing ability of plants and, probability of achieving the set objectives.
Innovative vertical garden design ideas include using plumbing pipes used for supply of water to homesteads and companies. These pipes can either be plastics or metals which you can turn them into an artful design that resemble trees. Collect plumbing pipes and arrange them vertically to enable them store soil for growth of the plants. The containers selected should allow air passage for healthy growth of those plants to prevent withering of leaves. Holes can be made at the bottom of the selected pipes to encourage water infiltration and transportation to different parts of plants grown. This helps the growth to be uniform ranging from the leaves to stems.
It is not essential for gardening to be done outdoors only but it can also be carried out indoors by using hydroponics. You need a hydroponic system for you to achieve this gardening system. Collect enough soil for planting forgetting the dirt that comes with the activity. Add enough water to the soil to make it wet before planting the seedlings for easy penetration into the gravel to promote fast germination. Dry soil does not enhance germination since the seedlings dry out making their leaves wither as they grow.
Although individuals throw away recycled bottles after use, you can turn them into your wall garden. Collect these bottles instead of throwing them away into the recycling bin. Cut out the side of the plastic bottle and, nail them to the wall of your desired location which can be at the backyard. Fill each bottle with soil adding water to moisten them for easy germination through adequate supply of water. Grow small crops like herbs that can grow in those plastic bottles without environmental stress. These aid minimize space while achieving your gardening goals without polluting the environment.
