Vertical gardens are a concept of gardening on a limited or narrow land. The concept of vertical gardens was created to utilize a narrow space where it is not possible to construct a garden horizontally. Vertical gardens are done by arranging plants and other garden elements in an upright (vertical) plane in such away.
Vertical gardening lately is increasingly loved by plant lovers, especially urban communities. This is in line with the “Urban Farming” program or city agricultural concept which is aimed at self-sufficiency in food, at least for the people themselves. This urban farming program is carried out not just to be a hobby and a lifestyle, but it has become a demand that must be met to anticipate the problems of high population and the threat of food and nutrition crisis in 2050.
Opinions developed in the community that applying the concept of Vertical Gardening is something that is expensive and complicated is not always true. In fact, vertical gardening can be done in a very simple and inexpensive way. Creativity is the main key to applying garden verticals to reduce costs as low as possible. In the application of vertical gardens only a simple idea is needed, the ability to use space efficiently, be creative in designing the garden, and the ability to use waste or used goods to be useful.
Green areas on narrow land should be restricted so as not to block the path. But this area must also stand out so that it matches the function of decorating the house. Can be done by placing plants in concrete pots made higher than the ground.
