Vertical Gardens

By | Carpentry, Fabrication, Uncategorized | No Comments

For the local community garden ( of which I am a member ) Horizontal space is severely limited, so I was asked to design and build a series of vertical gardens that would be modular, light weight, low cost and eco friendly. To complicate matters, we are not allowed to set any permanent concrete footing in the garden. The design I came up with created 40′ worth of vertical garden utilizing wooden L shapes that are tied to the ground using 3′ long sections pf rebar. The bottom portion is a large planter that also acts as a counterweight to keep the structure upright, and the top portion can be configured as vertical growing surface, or multi shelf area that can house individual round pots or long rectangular pots. I’ll be uploading the plans and cut list soon incase anyone wants to build one.
