Don’t let small spaces keep you from having the garden you’ve always desired.
If you can’t have one horizontally thanks to the paucity of space, make it happen vertically! We’ve put together some DIY vertical garden ideas that are not only easy to implement but also nice to look at.

DIY Vertical Garden #2: Understated pallet tray
This slightly time-consuming project can be used to grow a variety of ferns, herb, and succulents and can be propped in the balcony or patio. If you can’t find a pallet, opt for old shoe racks or book shelves that let you grow multiple plants vertically in its single frame. Get instructions here.
DIY Vertical Garden #3: A garden of bottles
Soft drinks , fruit juices or just plain mineral water, we tend to easily accumulate a lot of plastic bottles almost every week. Give your home a winning sustainability story with this nifty recycling idea. If hanging the bottles seems undoable, you can line the bottles on your balcony railings or the edge by securely tying it with twine.
