Vertical Vegetable Garden Design Ideas to Compliment Your Living

Raised vegetable garden Raised

Small space organic gardening is a reality for many homes of today, as more and more families incorporate backyard vegetable garden design and attempt to feed themselves from the fruits of their backyard gardens, patio vegetable garden, or urban homestead, while some even establish successful urban farms. In all cases every square inch of growing space becomes extremely beneficial. Vertical vegetable gardening is often the next best step to maximizing your growing space to its full potential.

Vertical gardening and landscaping is by no means, a new concept. According to the article Vertical Gardens: Plants for Walls About.com) by Lisa Hallett Taylor vertical gardening and living walls were incorporated into gardens, courtyards and other outdoor living areas as early as 3000 BC. I first touched on this idea in a post written back in September, Vertical Vegetables, on a Platter of Raised Garden Bed, in which I discussed the inspiration of this fascination. As this was more an organization session of my thoughts at the time, I felt compelled to write another post discussing primarily vertical vegetable garden ideas.

In the following examples, several design options for vertical gardening will be discussed. Many of these designs I plan to incorporate into my upcoming backyard reno. Past these examples, I leave creation up to your creative mind.


The first example of a vertical gardening system to mention is the vegetable tower. A vegetable tower can be created any way you like, really. Most commonly, a vegetable tower will be constructed from wood planks, or even stacks of containers, with a feeder pole through the center for consistent watering and stabilization of the 'tower'.

The Sunset series of books is good and I hear that BH+G has a website with some kind of garden plans.
