One of the new trends in town is the Vertical garden. First invented by Patrick Blanc, French botanist who loved experimenting with plants and the way they grow and how to grow them. Some of his best works are found around the world. Closer to home though is The MONA, Hobart, Tasmania has a fabulous display of plants or the Qantas lounge in Sydney and Melbourne.

Nowadays , it doesn’t matter if you don’t have the large garden space for a formal garden anymore. Going vertical is the best solution for those who would like to go green but don’t have the space for example in city dwellers. Wall garden or living walls is another way to describe this incredible, ingenious way to think about gardens. 

The choice is yours when it comes to what to grow, indoor or outdoor.  Make a herb garden, a veggie garden, a succulent display, a tropical paradise or be more colourful and create a visual flowering masterpiece. The sky’s the limit!

Perth has a notoriously dry and hot climate with windy conditions. Saving water is essential when thinking about any projects involving growing plants so that they thrive and grow. Usually, your vertical garden comes with a reticulation system ready to be installed and only needs to be connected. A professional can set the system up for you in the blink of an eye.

Unlike a formal flat/horizontal garden, creating a vertical garden means that you can let the plants grow and thrive as they will. For example ferns or other foliage can grow lush and green and wild but it is easier to trim and maintain these as they are growing vertically. The best vertical wall garden system setup is the one that requires little maintenance and that will help save water at the same time.
