VERTICAL GARDEN SYSTEMS:  A DIY essential for going green

Here is a DIY Project to get you thinking creatively. Vertical gardens have many shapes and sizes. From large multistoried buildings, to intimate spaces, we've seen vertical gardens taking off as an essential design for going green. This design trend is an answer to greening our cities and helping us maximize the space we have. 

If you ever find yourself with the urge to put a splash of green in your home in a major way, put some fresh herbs right in your kitchen, or somehow stir up a self made spa in your own bathroom — this DIY option to grow vertical could have you doing all the above in no time! You’ll learn a simple design element that could have you planting an edible garden and change your space for good.
