Mini Vertical Garden for Balcony, Patio, or Kitchen

May 27, 2011 by

Looking for a living wall or vertical garden system to screen your balcony while you grow veggies, fresh aromatic herbs, or flowers either indoors or out? The modular system is great for creating a small green wall or larger vertical garden on the terrace or in the kitchen.

Minigarden’s contemporary design is a fresh take on vertical gardening for for patios, decks, rooftops, and even for surrounding windows or covering an unsightly fence.

And let’s talk about eco-friendly. Minigarden conserves water as its unique design reduces evaporation keeping compost moist. The drainage system directs excess water to the base of the installation to prevent the plants in the bottom tier from being overwatered.

Black or white Mingarden modules are made from a tough durable copolymer polypropylene plastic, which, according to “The Green Guide” #77, The Green Guide Institute, are safe and do not leach chemicals.

Kits are available in either a small version of three planter tiers and 1 base tray, or for larger gardens and projects, there is a larger system that consists of groups of 26 with the base trays in groups of 13.

Available in the UK from Gardenbeet, and in the US from Newegg.
