One of the problems that people living in urban centers or cities face is the lack of space to grow their own food. This lack of direct contact with agriculture can be partially solved with vertical gardens.
What is a vertical orchard?
It is a structure that optimizes space for planting and sowing self consumption fruits or vegetables. It has the advantage that it is not necessary to have a harvest field but just an outside wall that receives sunlight for a few hours a day. In addition, you can use recycled materials for its building and saves money by reducing the purchase of products harvested in the market.
How to make your own vertical orchard?
In this video we show you what steps you need to take to start your own home orchard in a simple way and how to work on it to begin consuming food of your own.
As you have seen, it is very easy to install a vertical orchard at home. In addition, it is reusable and throughout the year you can plant products according to each season without building a new structure, only acquiring more humus and the new seeds of the fruits you want to harvest.
We have selected recycled bottles, but if you want you can also buy pots and arrange them vertically on the wall. If you have a nearby hydrant available you also have the option of using an automated irrigation system that will ensure that the pots receive the amount of water you choose, making it ideal if you cannot water them yourself for a long period time, such as during the holidays.
On the other hand, if you have more space and you want to create an urban garden there are some tricks that you will find very helpful, and you can even go a step further and build a green roof if you have a rooftop.
