The days are getting longer and there is no better way to spend your time outdoors.
The beginning of spring could be a wonderful opportunity to start rethinking about an original way to renew your garden!
Vertical garden is a very fashionable alternative for those who don’t have much space or just want to bring something more to their house.
WHAT DO YOU NEED?
- A wall
- A frame
- A large sheet of plastic and two pieces of fabric of the same size
- A fertilizer injector to feed your plants regularly
- An irrigation system to provide your plants with all the water they need
- The plants and flowers you prefer
Choose where to place your vertical garden.
You can grow it indoors or outdoors. You can use it as a way to cover an ugly wall.
Be careful in choosing where to build your garden. The exposure to sunlight should be appropriate for the kind of plants and flowers you want.
Assemble a frame. The simplest way to make your frame is by using a system of vertical pieces of woods. Attach your frame together by using nails, and then nail more wooden boards across and down the back in order to ensure that the frame is stable.
You can choose the way you prefer to attach the frame.
You can directly screw it to the wall or use hooks to hang it. This is a temporary option. It’s up to you!
We suggest you to use WX166 20V to hang the frame. It is perfect for drilling the wood surfaces!
Attach the plastic to the frame.
The best way to do it is by using screws and staples.
Buy two layers of fabric ore use something you already have (such as felt carpet padding) for covering the frame. Hang the fabric to the frame in the same way as the plastic sheeting.
Install a fertilizer injector and an irrigation system.
It is very useful to install a fertilizer injector while you are creating your vertical garden to feed your plants regularly. Be careful in choosing a fertilizer injector that is the right size for your frame.
It’s fundamental to provide your plants with water through the fabric too.
You can make one out of poly tubing and hang it to the frame by using fittings. You'll also need a propagation timer to maximize the use of water and minimize water waste.
Don’t forget to connect the irrigation system to your water source!
Choose the flowers and plants you prefer and insert them with the soil into the layer of fabric.
Remember that the amount of soil should be neither too little nor too much but the perfect one to make plants growing in a orderly manner.
The best way to insert your plants is by using a razor blade; you can cut them horizontally and remove from the plant's root ball as much soil as possible. Then insert them into a slits cut into the fabric layers.
To obtain the best result we suggest you to use a staple gun to insert some stainless-steel staples and attach the cloth to the plastic holder in a semicircle around the root ball.
We suggest you to choose plants with similar water and fertilizer requirements. Keep in mind that they need to be selected to suit perfectly the structure of your garden.
