Our top four ideas for a vertical garden
A vertical garden is perfect if you love flowers and plants but don’t have much space – whether you have a balcony, a small terrace or a tiny garden. It takes up very little room and can usually be replanted with ease. Here we outline the five most beautiful ideas for a vertical garden.
Vertical garden made from wire mesh
This vertical garden is a wonderful way to decorate your balcony wall with a little grass, flowers or herbs! It’s up to you whether you use wire mesh or a steel mat. To give your vertical garden a vintage look, we recommend that you don’t buy new mesh. Instead, look for slightly rusty mesh. In place of jars, you can also use terracotta pots for an on-trend look.
Vertical garden made from soup ladles
Yes, you read that right! This vertical garden is made from old soup ladles. It looks especially beautiful if you buy lots of different types of ladles, for example, from flea markets. Whether you prefer flowers, herbs or popular succulents like those in the photo – this version of the vertical garden is particularly eye-catching. And if you can’t decide ... why not plant a mixture of all three?
Vertical garden made from old pallets
DIY projects using wooden pallets are no longer an insider tip among crafts fans – but we simply couldn’t deprive you of this version of the vertical garden! The white pallets can be placed upright along the edge of your balcony or terrace, taking up virtually no space. If you don’t have either, you can also use a free wall to create this vertical garden inside the home. In fact, that applies to all of the vertical gardens shown here.
Vertical garden made from IKEA Skubb storage
Our final vertical garden is a cheap, easy idea that looks great and is sure to fit anywhere in your home. The web is full of IKEA hacks, but we especially like this one! Spring flowers, succulents, kitchen herbs … the Skubb hanging storage solution can be used not only for plants, but also for any materials and tools you need for working on the balcony or in the garden.
