    Vertical delights! Was looking ahead for something outsidethe planter Box an our post have have suggested some. I think today's verticalgardens is becoming more popular as it utilizes the space and can even take onall sorts of graphic designs. You can even create a sign, a painterlycomposition or spell out a monogram with plants on the wall.

      @Kala Professional Restoration services I totally agree! Land is a at premium and new builds are rowhomes, townhouses etc with small yards. Finding ways to grow vertically is more than just a trend, it's a solution ;)
