Leave it to New Yorkers to find ways of gardening in a major metropolis with zero ground space. The latest development in gardening in this city is no longer the rooftop gardens. It’s an indoor vertical garden that New York residents and commercial property owners are after. Here’s more on the latest indoor vertical garden New Yorkers all want.
Soil and Sod Patches
The first step is to design the vertical garden on a wall. Yes, it’s on a wall. Modern interior landscapers and designers are responsible for this step. Then a wall has to be converted to a space conducive to growing green things. This involves one of two approaches; inserting a clear tank-like structure inside the wall and filling it with moist dirt, or inserting individual patches of soil, like sod patches to grow things.
Choosing Plants for the Indoor Vertical Garden in New York
The best plants for an indoor vertical garden in New York are those that require little to no watering. Artificial sunlight is often provided via UV lamps, and a light misting daily or a few times a week is all these gardens need to grow. In a public or commercial space, the gardens are misted by a built-in misting system, or by maintenance crews. Many of the plants that are chosen are mosses, ferns, ivy, and climbing vines that are willing to grow down or up a vertical surface anyway.
