Small Deck With Custom Vertical Garden, Wood Privacy Wall and Bright Blue Accents
When you’re dreaming of green acres but living with the reality of a small terrace, consider using vertical spaces like walls or railings for plantings. Here, Guido Keller of Lotus Gardenscape used a custom-made wall planter by Ore to create a vertical garden. The client chose a brightly patterned rug and simple furnishings to complete the inviting effect.
A black wicker sectional with a matching coffee table sets the tone for relaxation on this stylish patio. Green and white nautical patterned pillows pad the sofa. A textured planter mounted to the wall creates a vertical garden, and a beer basket keeps refreshments readily available.
Vertical stackable planters are one way to have a micro garden and it suits shallow-rooted edibles like lettuces, flowers, strawberries and herbs, says Anne Gibson, known as The Micro Gardener. This setup also minimizes moisture loss when watering from the top. Group plants with the same water needs together on each tier and add a saucer at the base to collect any water or nutrients.
