TIP 4: Wooden panel vases, trusses, blankets or directly on the wall: The important thing is that both the wood, the wall and the floor are waterproofed and frequently maintained. Using trusses, chicken coop screen, etc. it is important to place a drainage blanket between the material and the wall and / or that it does not “cling” to the wall.

TIP 8: Plants and land weigh. Make sure the structure is strong and firm.
TIP 9: To keep the plants happy, worry about drainage – don’t let water accumulate – fertilizer – keep the soil nourished, add fertilizer and even change the soil eventually if you feel the plants are weak. And watering – That’s why it’s important that plants that stay together have the same need for water.

TIP 10: If you don’t have a lot of time or care about plants, definitely large vertical gardens are not for you (unless you have a caretaker). Prefer few plants that are easy to care for, hardy – succulent for example.
