A cheap vertical garden idea – edge your climber

a cheap way of building a living wall

This vertical garden is primarily made from ficus creeper. Its not a new generation living wall (ie made up of plants that do not normally creep up a wall such as ferns, grasses etc)  but it certainly tricked me.

The sharp edges of the creeper gave the appearance that it was a vertical garden made from a system such as easiwall.

I was kinda struck how easy it can be to achieve a contemporary vertical garden ‘look’ without having to part with oodles of money.

Of course the number of plants that will achieve this style is limited but I liked the way the garden owner has broken the ficus square with hanging planters.

Great food for thought. This image offers plenty of scope for creating a cheap vertical garden.
