Vertical Gardens Permaculture Courses by Frank Gapinski Making use of vertical wall space located in a sunny spot is a great way to grow your garden. In fact you don’t need pumps or complicated equipment to start growing your own vegetable garden. As long as you have a consistent amount of sunshine of around 6 hours per day and a collection of plastic drink containers and some ingenuity you can create a mini vegetable garden and have it self-water the system. Consider this novel approach to harnessing gravity to feed your garden. Easy Vertical Bottle Garden All you need is a small amount of vertical space around a balcony or an open window which can hang or store a vertical array of drink bottles that can grow all your herbs and lettuce easily. Drill a hole through each screw-on bottle top lid so that water can drip from one bottle down to the next. Cut the base of the second bottle so the neck of the first bottle can funnel into the second bottle.

Grass-Walled and Green-Roofed Parking Garage for Toyko The two-story parking garage would take the place of a ground level parking lot, thus doubling the amount of available parking. Cheungvogl estimates that infrastructural investment to build the garage would more than pay for themselves through increased revenue from the additional spots. Not only green and gorgeous on the outside, but the inside parking garage walls and pillars would be painted by young artists as a sort of living museum, and the harsh fluorescent lighting characteristic of these lots would be replaced with more cheerful neon lights. In feudal times in Japan, the creation public parks and garden spaces was banned by the leaders, as such, public parks in Tokyo come at a premium. This new typology for the parking garage could infuse extra green space into the city by elevating a public park to the rooftop while also giving way to a more efficient green roofed structure. + Cheungvogl Via WAN

Five reasons for vertical gardening Plants have certain requirements of their own such as sunlight, nutrients and support. So, while planting pots and plants, all this have to be taken care of. Vertical gardening is a kind of trend that first started up in large cities where yard space is very little. The idea behind vertical gardening is that one doesn’t need to have large spaces to produce exclusive gardens or good harvest. One can also plant these plants along a vertical plane which would also act like a fence. 1. The factors involved in vertical gardening is that it uses limited space and grow more. 2. Like, if you don’t have your own pets, it may happen that neighborhood pets destroy your vertical garden as for them it’s just a litter. 3. Normally, the plants diseases are spread when they are in direct contact with the soil which is not so in case of vertical gardening or in case of hanging planters. 4. 5.

10-14 Flowering Shedule Hi everyone! Ok, I've told you about the 12-1 Veg schedule,(see the link above) and a lot of members here are courageously making the switch and saving themselves a LOT in power bills during the vegetative cycles, and growing bigger, happier, and healthier plants with less troubles, using less power and less nutrients... The results have definitely exceeded all expectations in everyone's trials. The 12-1 thread has had more hits than all but two threads have in the entire time the site has been here, and its rocketed to the #1 thread on the entire forums in only the last 10 months. Many growers who are growing on a rotation or choose to rotate plants through their flower room will find a diminishing light schedule difficult to use. Since then, Ive changed to flowering on a 10-14 schedule, noting it provides a special hurry up and increased pistil and flower production. Hope this helps everyone out. Yoda
