Adding Vertical Gardens to Your Multi-Unit Property

Before we dive into our discussion regarding the benefits of a vertical garden in a multi-unit development, we should probably clear up what exactly these vertical gardens are. In order to keep this relatively brief, we'll focus on them in a generalised form.

Hydroponics is a type of gardening whereupon the plant is fed by means other than rain into nutrient-rich soil. Containers for vertical gardens can range from buckets to elaborate PVC labyrinths and everything in between.

Now that we know what vertical gardens are, we can move our discussion toward discussing why they would be beneficial to a multi-unit development. As a developer, you should know that it is important to capture the attention of your potential tenets in a positive light. In order to do this, you can turn to a vertical garden. Here are a few of the many benefits that a vertical garden can add to your multi-unit development.

  1. Visual Appeal - If you've ever seen a healthy wall garden, you've likely been awed by the array of vibrant green colouring. Vertical gardens are gorgeous statement pieces that attract the eye and improve the visual aesthetic of the building next to it. These wall gardens are a great way to push away overwhelming urban features.
  2. Environmentally Friendly - Vertical gardens are also fantastic for the environment. Living greenery helps to protect our environment by filtering pollutants and reducing the carbon footprint of the nearby building. You're literally creating a healthier world with your vertical garden.
  3. Sustainable Produce - Finally, your vertical garden functions as an actual garden! This means that you are getting healthy, natural food grown right in your backyard. What tenant wouldn't love having a garden of healthy food growing near their personal part of the building?
