Inspired by gardens she saw from her trip to Tuscany, Master Gardener Ann Marie Bartoo has proposed a vertical garden project for the TPL Gardens.
What’s a vertical garden? Here are some examples of vertical gardens and vertical garden elements.
Why do it? You can probably think of reasons on your own, but some that come to mind:
- wicked cool looking
- universal accessibility- no stooping necessary, wheelchair accessible
- efficient and aesthetically pleasing use of space
- possibilities for re-using/up-cycling materials.
- modular and movable
TPL garden committee members can comment on this post or send Bernardo ideas. We’d like to build some systems over the winter and install them in the spring. Keep an eye out for this and other posts.
