Vertical Gardening

TAGS: None

Now a new type of gardening: called vertical gardening. It can be good to help you save space, while allowing you to enjoy the joy of gardening.

If you have limited space for gardening, instead of looking down at the square footage on the ground, try taking a look up.

Long a staple in Europe, vertical gardening is blooming among U.S. landscapers, designers and home gardeners looking to transform skinny side yards, balconies and cramped courtyards.

“People are trying to maximize every square inch of their property, and more and more people have smaller properties or just a balconyor courtyard, but they still want to have a garden,” says Rebecca Sweet, co-author with Susan Morrison of “Garden Up! Smart Vertical Gardening for Small and Large Spaces.”

Vertical gardening is surprisingly beginner-friendly, and experts say supplies are cheap and easy to find.

One simple way of creating a vertical garden is by starting with plants that are known to climb or can easily be manipulated to grow in a certain direction. Honey suckle, wisteria and morning glories all have leaves and stems that will easily grow around a pole or trellis.

vertical gardeningAccording to the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, there are several varieties of climbing roses that will do well in this climate.

The America, Crimson Glory and Peace roses will all thrive in north Georgia and their arching stems will help them easily grow along walls or trellises, researchers say.

Creating living walls — fences, patio walls or other surfaces covered in plants, flowers, succulents, even fruits and vegetables — is one of the most popular vertical gardening techniques.

One way to do this is by using breathable fabric “pockets” that can be hung on a wall. Sweet suggests starting small by purchasing one pocket garden that will hold three or four plants. Hang it along a wall or fence that gets partial sun to avoid drying out the smaller amount of soil. “Instead of flowers, consider planting herbs or vegetables,” Sweet says.

“Mixing trailing herbs like thyme and oregano with upright red and green lettuces will not only look great, but because your garden will be off the ground, you’ll have fewer problems with pests.”

If going green is your thing, vertical gardening may be right up your ally. Turning an old metal filing cabinet into a planter is a cheap, environmentally friendly way to incorporate containers into a vertical garden.

A New Way of Decompression:Gardening

TAGS: None

Increasingly fast pace of modern life, the pressure is getting bigger. Therefore, we must learn how to relieve the pressure, gardening is actually a good decompression method.

Between being constantly bombarded by bleak economic reports and other seemingly endless tragic stories on the news, living happily day to day can become increasingly difficult. Finding an interest such as gardening that you can delve into can literally mean the difference between waking up stressed out to falling asleep relaxed and exhausted, a perfect combination for a good night’s sleep.

“I think basically anything that you enjoy doing reduces stress,” said licensed clinical social worker Robin Canter. In her psychotherapy practice in Wilton, Canter works with adolescents, adults and families dealing with depression, anxiety and court
mandated anger management.

A New Way of Decompression:Gardening“So whether it’s gardening or just being outside, or doing a handy craft, anything that you enjoy doing is useful for stress reduction.”

Gardening has a variety of levels that contribute to a feeling of well being and accomplishment. Mainly, gardening takes work. Whether you are planting an entire acre of crops or simply have a couple pots of tomato plants on the patio, the time and tending to that garden’s require can help override obsessive, useless thoughts. Focusing on deadheading petunias can give an overworked brain just what it needs to relax and slow down. And looking at a beautiful flower or succulent vegetable helps elevate mood in itself.

“Well you could even go so far as to say that when gardening, people are moving their body, digging in the dirt and working up a sweat,” added Canter, “and any form of exercise is good for stress reduction.”

Canter explained that exercise causes chemical changes within the body which in turn improves mood.
