  • A Vertical Garden is an indoor/outdoor modular planter with multiple levels of vertically spaced pots or planters. Its vertical design saves space and water. With a flow through irrigation system, water from the top plants passes to all the lower pots.
  • Different sizes of rack can be used to fit the gardener's needs. It can be tall with five levels of plants for a larger garden, or it can be built lower to the ground and longer.
  • Using the vertical space instead of horizontal space is an important feature for those short of planting area in condos, or apartments with small balconies.
