Vertical Gardening

Vertical Gardening in its Simplest Form
Vertical gardening functions as sculpture.  It adds square footage to a small planting footprint, thus functions as a small garden solution.  It also functions to enable people with limited range of motion to garden.  Vertical gardens can take many forms.  Some forms include plants growing up and over pergolas, trees with multiple unique fruit bearing grafts, vines climbing up buildings and gardens on top of buildings.
