Top 18 Simple DIY Ideas to Create Indoor Vertical Gardening - Designer Vertical Gardens

Who does not love growing beautiful plants to make the home surroundings more vibrant? Plants are good not only for the environment but also for the well-being of the people. But the common problem people face nowadays is the need for sufficient space for extensive gardening. The indoor vertical garden is one of the best innovations to make the small open area look more appealing.

Often referred to as living green walls, moss walls, and live walls, vertical gardens have been around for a long time. Growing plants vertically on a panel, either self-supporting or attached to a wall, is known as "vertical gardening." But natural plants demand regular watering, fertilising, pest control, sunlight and much more.

Compared with natural plants, artificial vertical gardens demand less work and provide more benefits like low cost and maintenance. Thus, these realistic-looking fake vertical gardens have gained popularity amongst homeowners and interior designers in Australia.

You can grow flowers or plants on a trellis, a tower of pots, or garden netting in a faux vertical garden. There are numerous options for setting up an artificial indoor vertical garden, from herbs and perennials to annuals.

Let us learn some eye-catching indoor vertical garden ideas that are perfect for your small spaces.
