A Living Free Guide
  • By Chris McLaughlin
Grow up, not out

Are you a gardener (or aspiring gardener) who is short on space? Vertical methods and structures for growing plants are an ideal way to maximize your real estate, and they're eye-catching, too.

Vertical solutions deliver more yield in fewer square feet, especially perfect for the urban gardener. They're less work, too, so you can forget all-day weeding and watering. Some vegetables, such as tomatoes and pole beans, have been grown vertically for a very long time, but those who need to maximize space can grow almost any type of plant vertically--from melons and squash to carrots, peppers, and pears.

Vertical growing isn't just practical, it's beautiful, too Trellises, terra cotta towers, and hanging planters (to name a few ) transform an outdoor space into a magical garden.
