Garden Up! Smart Vertical Gardening for Small and Large Spaces
Vertical gardening is the hottest new garden design concept.
An increasing number of consumers garden in limited spaces, and are searching for help in maximizing gardening space, whether that's an urban terrace, a narrow side yard, or a small intimate area in a landscape. Vertical gardening techniques offer solutions for a wide range of garden challenges, including growing edibles, personalizing a garden with unique focal points and decorative touches or simply hiding unsightly landscape elements.
Landscape designers, Susan Lee Morrison and Rebecca Sweet have filled this book with easy, affordable, inspirational vertical options that will help consumers create beautiful gardens that take advantage of vertical opportunities.
Filled with design tips, plant ideas and over 200 photos, Garden Up! offers inspiration and how-to information for enhancing any outdoor space with vertical elements. Authors Morrison and Sweet cover everything from living wall projects simple enough for a home gardener to tackle to creative solutions for blank walls and narrow beds.
In chapters like 'Arbors and Trellises' and 'Garden Secrets', the book offers a wealth of design advice and problem solving solutions for traditional gardeners. Small space gardeners, DIYers and those looking to incorporate the latest vertical techniques into their gardens will appreciate sections that examine 'skinny space' planting beds, urban gardens, edibles and living walls. In keeping with their problem solving approach to gardening and design, Morrison and Sweet have arranged their plant picks chapter by solution rather than plant type. Each chapter features a design spotlight that examines a specific garden and breaks down the elements that went into its creation.
The range of gardens included in the book support the authors' belief that vertical gardening is more than a temporary trend - it's here to stay.
