With ever decreasing sizes of modern homes, however, having a lush garden or backyard is slowly going out of the question, with many opting for terrace and balcony gardens. Now, suppose your balcony was not big enough, and you’re sharing your terrace with a bunch of strangers, a lovely, compact option is a hand grown vertical garden. Here’s why we think they’re the most sensible options right now.

Space

Point already made. Another advantage with vertical gardens, space-wise, is the density and number of plants you can simply grow off a wall. Imagine having a whole herb garden right inside your tiny kitchen, on one sunlit wall. Sounds incredible, right?

Air Purification

More plant= more oxygen- fresher air- better health- better person. We all know this, and you no longer need to watch helplessly as your busy life gets squashed into a dingy apartment in an endless concrete jungle.

Urban Escape

One wall of green can really transform the way you perceive a space. Nurture your vertical garden and watch as it transforms your home or office into a green oasis that is the refreshing refuge you needed in your resigned, urban lifestyle.

Not only are vertical gardens the charming structures that can bring some freshness into your life in the concrete jungle, but they can also be used wisely to help along the general layout of your home. Wish your long drawing room could be put to optimum use? Partition it with a vertical garden.

Keep Nosy Neighbours Out of It

If, like me, you’re a single girl trying to keep her privacy and sanity in a colony full of nosy, judgmental neighbors, this is a great way to screen out all the bs.

Natural Ornaments

Use a wall of ferns to amp up the ornamental properties of a vertical garden. Succulents can look lovely, too.
