For gardening enthusiasts looking for something a little edgy, a vertical garden allows plants to grow along vertical surfaces such as fence panels. Vertical gardens are a wonderful alternative to potted plants in the built environment and is the best way to create an outdoor oasis of flowers, herbs, produce or fruit in a small space. Whether you have a backyard or patio, learn all about the benefits of vertical gardening, which plants to use and most important, how to get a vertical garden started.
