Maintenance Tips For Vertical Gardens
Vertical gardens allow you to grow flowers, herbs and vegetables in limited space by taking advantage of unused areas in your home or yard. Vertical gardens draw the eye upwards, visually enlarging the area and creating a living wall of color. While vertical gardens can be lower maintenance than traditional gardens, they will still require some work on your part to ensure that they stay looking at their best. Here are some tips on maintaining vertical gardens. Because most vertical gardens use very little soil in their design, you need to put the nutrients in with the water. The nutrient rich water is generally delivered using a gravity fed drip irrigation system so all you have to do in terms of maintenance is make sure that the drippers remain free of any blockages and that the level of nutrients is kept at the correct levels. You should be able to buy the appropriate nutrients from your local nursery or plant specialist.
It doesn’t matter what type of plants you’ve chosen to grow in your vertical garden, all of them will have their own particular care requirements. If your plants have any dead leaves or flowers, these need to be removed. Depending on the type of plants you have, you may also wish to prune them so that they grow in a certain way. Vertical gardens may still have problems with pests so you will need to keep an eye on this. Regularly check your plants for signs of disease or pests. If you see any, try and use natural pesticides or products to get rid of them.
