Coming home to a garden at home can refresh your senses and relax you. But where will you put that garden if you have limited lot space, or you live in a condo? Creating your own vertical garden can be the solution.

“The use of vertical space is the solution to maximize the space that they have,” says Marvz Conti of Habil Crafts. “Vertical gardens can work indoors and outdoors.” If you don’t want the hassle of frequent maintenance, moss gardens can be an option, too. Here are ten different dream vertical gardens to inspire you.

A simple, linear vertical garden can soften a stark, araal stone wall, as seen in this tropical wall of ferns and mayana, as designed by architect Arlene Maslog.

Moss wall



If you want to make a statement indoors, install a moss wall, as seen in this project by Habil Crafts. For this kind of wall, Marvz Conti uses a special kind of moss (the natural color is brown, so it can be colored according to your taste) that doesn’t need watering to stay alive.

Artistic

Carefully arranged plants that follow a specific design add visual interest and dynamism to this building’s lobby. A vertical garden is definitely more refreshing and textural than a mural.

Lighted

Plants can definitely become a focal point in a design, especially when incorporated into interior details, like this vertical garden on sculptural shelves in a hotel in New York—dramatic backlighting adds an elegant edge.

Edible

A “veggie wall” is an ingenious way to have a vertical garden that is decorative, sustainable, and edible all at the same time. This hydroponic wall in a restaurant provides all the fresh, clean veggies for the salads that they serve. 

Freeform


Carefully trimmed and maintained vertical gardens are nice, but if you let the foliage run wild, the garden can give a romantic, Miss-Havisham’s-mansion-quality to a space.

Recycled

Actress Paula Peralejo didn’t let these bottles go to waste; she just painted these white to match the theme of her quirky-cozy garden. There are a lot of items you can upcycle or recycle for a vertical garden: pet bottles of softdrinks are one, as well as ice cream gallons and mineral water jugs.

Modern-minimalist

You may think minimalist homes don’t need messy plants, but these modern spaces can benefit from a touch of green. Designers Mark San Diego and Ysa Villar created this modernist vertical garden in a condo using DIY cardboard plant holders.

Succulents

Ride on the succulent-trend bandwagon, but take it one step further by creating a succulent vertical garden. What you can use: haworthia, euphorbia, and the ever-popular echeveria.

Floral

Vibrantly hued gerberas add color and brightness to this green wall. Choose your plants and containers carefully for this type of wall—use planters that have a bit of a slant to hold the soil in, and also consider the temperature of the area (blooming plants survive better in cooler climes like Tagaytay or Baguio).
