As more and more Australians opt for low maintenance apartment living, one of the challenges is making our spaces green and bringing nature in.
One clever way to add value to our homes, affordably is to start a vertical garden. It’s fairly inexpensive, adds aesthetic appeal and if you live in an apartment, you won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything.
Some clever items that you can find lying around to start your garden include:
- Old wooden pallets
- Lattice columns
- Hanging pots
- Old ladders or chests of drawers
- Plastic bottles hung on string
- Stacked milk crates
- Hanging tin buckets
Keep in mind that gardens can attract bugs, so make sure your doors and windows are covered with insect screens.
