3 Photo Pegs That Will Inspire You To Build A Vertical Garden
Jazz up a blank wall with these design ideas
Who said that you need a sprawling lawn to have a lovely plant bed? Since the boom of small space living, people have come up with a lot of alternatives to traditional practices—one of them is vertical gardening.
Aside from helping you cover up unattractive walls and bare fences, a vertical garden offers no restrictions when it comes to placement and style—you can have it by the kitchen window, balcony, garage—and it can be adjusted according to your decor theme.
To get you started, here are three pegs you can use as reference for your own green corner.
Instead of using ordinary clay pots, consider getting creative and mounting wooden crates. They're a great way to add texture to a blank wall—experiment with getting different washes from light to dark to add more depth to your display. You can also combine style and function by switching out terrariums for herbs you can use for cooking.
RL Tip: Save some cash by going to your local market and buying these fruit crates in bulk!

Family pictures aren't the only thing you can display in frames! Try planting assorted succulents together in shadowboxes to create a colorful tapestry. Experiment with making more than one set-up as these look great when contrasted against each other.

If you're not too keen on DIY projects like the first two, you can still have a charming vertical garden using coffee cups in bright hues. Hang your mugs on a pegboard with hooks. For a more streamlined look, matching mugs can be your best bet but feel free to mix and match colors for a more playful display.
