Vertical Landscaping is also known as Living Wall of recent. These are the landscaping variations that provide the height element besides the obvious subject like trees, plants, bushes, shrubs, fences and decks.
Those are the permanent landscaping fixtures but today, we are exploring the options of flexible vertical landscaping garden that will allow you to move it around and change it up according to season and occasions. I love versatile because it spices up the living space.
My number one love is the hanging baskets. It is so simple and easy to put together adding on to the vertical landscaping garden. It is mobile, and it comes in various colors, shapes and material to compliment your home décor. The hanging baskets allow the plant and flowers to drape down from all sides as well as vine upwards to the hanger. My tip is to plant assortment of flowers in bulk and when necessary, swap it up with different splash of colors to provide a different atmosphere in the living area.
My second favorite is trellises. This vertical landscaping gardening has been used for century to provide support of the climbing vines and plants. It is most commonly used to bring up colors of the structures. The trellises also come in many sizes, colors, materials and shapes. It is versatile and can be moved around the garden as you wish to modify your landscaping design.
The full bloom trellises are the best astonishing barrier for privacy in the landscaping world. If you are in favor of a smaller scale of trellises, it can be set in the planter or pot to provide visual of height on your backyard patio or deck.
Obelisks is just a different kind of trellis in a tall, slim pyramid shape. This special piece of structure is an artwork itself in vertical landscaping. It is best to pair it with climbing plants or flowering vine. Obelisks is a spectacular element that can be placed permanently in your outdoor landscaping or move it around in the pot and planter depending on the season.
Lastly, the arbors. This is usually the focal point of any landscape. The big arbor structure is usually set up as a welcoming entrance for guests. Years ago, the arbor is a fix element in the garden because it is built on to the cement base or buried deeply into the ground. However, in this modernized landscaping era, the arbor is erected with a footed base that can be move around to wherever you want.
In some cases, it is freestanding to be placed on a sidewalk, pathway, patio or deck. Just stabilized it down with big heavy object so that winds will not blow it away. The best way to camouflage this unpleasant weight is to choose a large potted plant or a decorative statue to place on top of the base.
Adding a vertical landscaping element to your garden or yard is an excellent idea to dress up your design. Do not hesitate to let your imagination go wild in the creation. If you ended up not liking the final appearance, you can reposition it as many times as you want until you get it right! And, that is the benefit of the vertical landscaping.
