Vertical garden made from wire mesh

Simple but beautiful: hang jam jars on wire mesh and add plants as you see fit.

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.

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.
