28 Vertical Garden Ideas

#11 Stack Crates for a Tiered Edible Garden

Reusable wooden crates reinforced with stabilizing planks create an appealing stacked garden. These containers can be stacked quite high, matching the height of a background fence or wall, as long as there is adequate support for the unit.

#12 Muted Round Zinc Planters Allow Plants to Shine

Zinc planters create an eye-catching collage for a wall space that would work either inside or out. Low upkeep succulents are the perfect choice for planting, although air plants or slow-growing seedlings would also do well.

#13 A Creative Use for Ordinary Wooden Crates

Honey-colored wooden crates match the fencing in this garden, part of their visual appeal. Exuberant and colorful blooms like petunias and trailing plants like ivies spill over the sides, breaking up the straight lines with an engaging use of texture.

#14 An Ultra-Modern Vertical Garden Idea

Seeming to float in the air, these tiny ceramic planters in a crisp shade of white combine with the outside greenery, creating a three-dimensional effect and drawing the outdoors inside.

#15 Tropical Plants Create a Wall of Color

This striking vertical garden decor brings a fresh burst of color with its tall yet compact design.

#16 A Vertical Garden Idea for the Kitchen

Seed containers in descending sizes stack neatly on a narrow strip of wall space. Their flowering contents spill exuberantly over the sides, adding to the strong visual appeal. Strong metal hooks hold the boxes firmly in place and add a contrasting effect when painted in deep black.

#17 Dressing Up Old Dresser Drawers

An unused dresser is dressed up by converting its drawers into impromptu planters. Stagger the amount of space when drawing the draws out and place flowering plants in individual pots and coordinating colors.

#18 Make Gardens, Not War

Old ammunition boxes make a surprisingly effective planter, especially when grouped together in a ladder-like presentation. Add edible plants for their strong shades of green and their use in the kitchen.

#19 Imaginative Innovation is the Wellspring of This Vertical Garden Idea

This stunning installation uses regularly placed vertical pieces as a backdrop for the occasional protruding shelf with rounded edges. Bright green moss peeks out from the crevices, scattered in a haphazard fashion throughout the display.

#20 A Look That Wouldn’t Be Out of Place in Alice’s Wonderland

Incorporating a touch of whimsy into a garden or home design, these terracotta pots positioned in offset angles create an eye-catching focal point for a garden area. Planted with a profusion of petunias in a bright, bubble gum-colored shade of pink.

#21 Transform Airy Wooden Shelving Into an Herb Garden

More than a passing similarity to a child’s swing gives these stacked boards a playful air. Use repurposed wood from discarded pallets to make this vertical garden decor.

#22 Paint a Wall with Plants

Slices of eucalyptus tree trunk serve as creative planters holding a variety of green foliage and orchids for a truly natural aesthetic.

#23 A Vertical Garden Idea for a Seaside Cottage

Artfully shaped pieces of driftwood form a living sculpture with the addition of small succulents in colors ranging from green to dusty red. Their shapes provide interesting texture in any planting area and are particularly successful contrasted with the smooth lines of these driftwood limbs.

#24 Frame a Patio Space with a Beautiful Hanging Garden

Using an array of spring blooms in shades of purple and white, these redwood boxes create a vertical garden with fresh, clean lines. The flowers can be rotated seasonally or the boxes can be planted with annuals that will bloom throughout the spring and summertime.

#25 Create an Airy Garden Backdrop with Simple Chicken Wire

Achieving a vertical garden design without sacrificing the view of what’s behind it is part of the beauty of this clever design. Accent the edge of a patio or create a dramatic entryway near the front door.

#26 Create a Living Wall of Leaves

For a space needing a dramatic focal point, this design creates a commanding presence and would look especially pretty in a courtyard.

#27 Repurpose Old Items for a Fresh New Look

Nesting boxes for chickens in a former life, this planter brings the patina of age and a warm, primitive feel to this vertical garden design. Mounted on a garden shed, dressing up a bland space, or incorporated into a larger patio design are all options for this versatile idea.

#28 A Look Straight Out of an Antique Flower Market

Repurposed wood from an old crate creates a sturdy backdrop for matching shelves that hold tiny plants and herbs. It can hold herbs useful in cooking, it can also showcase pretty blooms for a bright pop of color, making it a valuable addition to home decor.
