Vertical Gardens are nothing but Gardens set up in a Vertical Space. The lack of space in Urban areas has pushed for the need of Vertical Gardens. Vertical Gardens can be seen as an effective tool to optimize the usage of available space. Vertical Gardens are meant for both Indoor and Outdoor Gardens. In this post, we will discuss about different ways in which you can set up a vertical garden at your place, plants that can be grown in vertical garden and a few pros & cons of vertical garden. We will be discussing in detail about Vertical Wall/Green Wall in another article.
There are many ways to make use of the vertical Space. A few examples are as follows:
You can attach it to the wall like these
You can place a vertical stand for the pots like these
I specially love the second idea of having a custom-made stand for your pots as it would give you a little more room for flexibility and movement along with a perfect look for your garden.
Coming to the plants, vertical gardens are meant for smaller plants. That does not mean we have to limit our options. There are innumerable flowering and non-flowering plants available (which are either small or dwarfed for) such type of gardens. Not to forget the Herb & Leafy Vegetables that you can have out here! Be careful with the placement of plants. If the lower racks are receiving less sunlight as compared to the upper racks, place your plants accordingly. Choose a mix of both shade-loving and Sunlight-loving plants.
You can get your stand designed from a carpenter or a Fabricator. Be careful about using wood for your stand. The stand may get wet/moist with the excess water that drains out of pots or because of rains, if you’re planning to place the stand outdoors.

Now that you have decided which type of Garden you’ll be creating, let’s proceed to create one! In case you missed the article on different types of Garden that you can create, click here!
Where to Begin:
- Factor in the space available in your Balcony/Terrace
- Also check the hours of sunlight available
- Decide on the type of Garden that you want to create/Design
- Decide on the number of plants you’ll like to have
- Decide exactly where and how you’ll place them. Positioning is the key! While deciding the position of each plant see to it that you’re placing plants that require sunlight in a spot that receives maximum sunlight and the shade loving plants on the other end.
- Buy suitable pots and Containers for the plants
- Buy the plants/seeds
- Pot the Plants as mentioned here
- You’re all set!!
- Pots are the first ones to grab the attention of the onlookers! And probably Yours too!
- As I said, positioning is the key! Place the plants in proper hierarchy or Patterns.
- Climbers/creepers, especially flowering ones, add a lot of beauty. Do give it a shot. I realized it too late! Now working on them. If you have climbers, you can have simple pots as the climbers end up covering the entire pot! So climbers are the best way to conceal anything. Just place them in front of the wall you want to conceal along with a trellis and there you are! They are magical. You just need to put in little efforts to train them.

Windows – the most under-utilized space in any home! Windows have always been my favorite as they are among the first things we approach in the morning!
