The park is not just filling the void of space, but also functions as a filter for dust and pollution as well as improving air circulation in the house. The existence of a garden is currently a necessity for residential owners because of the aesthetic value it produces. Narrow land is not a barrier to beautifying your home. Because currently there is a method of making a garden vertically or better known as a vertical garden. With an upright garden landscape design, where plants and other garden elements are arranged in a straight plane. Since it was first introduced by a botanist from France in 1994, in its development there are two types, namely Green Facades and Living Walls. Green Facades refers to the use of plants intended to cover certain structures with growing media. In contrast to Living Walls which refers to a planting system by providing planting media on the wall. Keep in mind, not all plants can be planted using a vertical garden system.
The planting medium used for vertical gardens is generally not soil media, but instead carpet fabric or rock wool which can absorb water with a thickness of 7cm. Not only can it make your home more beautiful, but vertical gardens can also lower the air temperature so that it can cool and give your home a natural freshness. So, if you want to make your vertical garden, maybe you can start using the simplest growing media. Then what about the design? Here are some vertical garden design ideas that you can imitate at home. Because it is installed in a vertical plane, the most important thing is the selection of planting media. Some of the growing media that are often used in vertical gardens are cocopeat, husk, pumice, perlite, seaweed, and others. A light planting medium is highly recommended, because it does not overload the wall structure, such as a mixture of peat moss (peat) and cocopeat. Peat contains nutrients for growth and cocopeat is good for storing water.
To look beautiful, vertical gardens use more than one type of plant with various compositions and colors. Plants must also be adapted to the placement: indoor or outdoor. For indoor applications, the garden must be assisted by artificial lights as a light source for the photosynthesis process.
