Here’s an excerpt from the book:

Why Plant a Vertical Garden?

There are many reasons why people choose to grow a vertical garden. Whether they’re intrigued by the style or require additional space for growing, vertical gardens are definitely an answer.

One big reason why folks choose to plant a vertical garden is because they lack sufficient space. If you live in an urban or suburban area that has a very small yard or no yard at all, you can use vertical gardening to produce a massive amount of food and beautiful plants where conventional gardening may be impossible

Urban Living

If you live in a city, you can still enjoy vertical gardens! Here’s how:

Vertical Gardening on Your Balcony or Patio

Don’t fret if you have a small condo or apartment in the city that has no green space. The beauty about vertical gardening is that it can be built anywhere you have enough space. With a vertical garden, a foot of space is enough to start a garden!

This vertical garden takes up 4ft by 1 ft but look at all that food!

Vertical gardens work great in small places and you will be surprised how much food you can grow in a tiny space when you grow vertically!

If you have a balcony or patio that has free space, you can transform the entire area into a vertical garden. A lot of people in urban areas have taken to this idea. Just take a look at many of the balconies that you find in major cities throughout the United States. You may see all types of plants growing on them.

In fact, I personally have a Tower Garden vertical aeroponics system (learn more in Chapter 11) growing on my balcony. It turns my otherwise “dead space” of a concrete balcony into a massive food-producing haven. In just a 2 foot by 2 foot area, my balcony vertical garden produces fresh, delicious, organic tomatoes, mint, purslane, lettuces (4 kinds!), strawberries, cucumbers, watermelons, parsley and snap peas!

That one vertical garden has saved me about $100 a month in grocery bills too!

Vertical Gardening on Your Rooftop

If you weren’t lucky enough to get an apartment that has a balcony or patio, then you may be able to use the rooftop. Make sure to speak with the management of your building to make sure that it’s alright. If so, you can begin planning out an area of the rooftop for your vertical garden.

In fact, rooftop gardens are cropping up in urban areas all over the world – both for fun and commercial use.
