It cannot be thought otherwise that people have always had the need to come up with something new. As a way of comparison, people in today’s world are seen as more creative and innovative as compared to those in the olden days. It is argued that today we have more resources and freedom as compared to the people in the past who had little or none of these. Some people argue that if the same resources were available to them in those days, they did not know how to use them. Technology is one of the reasons that man has reached the heights he has in the recent past.
Man depends on growing crops a lot for a number of reasons. Food that is rich in different nutrients and minerals comes from plants and this makes them important to us humans. Plants also help in keeping the environment beautiful and in balance by releasing and taking in some gases vital for our existence.
Man’s innovation has led him to develop a way of planting crops that is known as vertical gardening. Vertical gardening as the name suggests is where the people use vertical space like walls and others to grow crops with the help of containers. This method is used by people as an alternative for land and also for the fact that plants grown on the walls look attractive.
Starting a vertical garden is not as easy as the final outlook usually is because a number of steps have to be considered when setting up a vertical garden. The following steps need to be considered for an individual to have the best vertical garden. It is very important before setting up a vertical garden to know which type of crops that need to be planted. It is very important to specialize in one especially for trial and error purposes before one ventures into the practice fully.
A wall or any other vertical space needs to be carefully selected. A good and strong support system is also very important. This should also be aligned in place with the kind of sunlight that the plants will receive and also the kind of plants that you will grow. It is very important to install a system that will supply adequate water to the crops.
Another factor to consider is the fertilizer that is used for the plants.
