There is no doubt that from a very long time, the beginning of man to be specific, people have always been adventurous and creative in everything they put their hands on. It should again be noted that the same can be said for people in the modern world more than those in the traditional or ancient societies. The main reason for this is largely because of the resources available at our disposal and the freedom that we have unlike what people in the olden days had. Some people argue that if the same resources were available to them in those days, they did not know how to use them. One of the most important resource that we have today is the improvement of science and technology.
Crops are very important in our existence because we depend on them a lot. Food that is rich in different nutrients and minerals comes from plants and this makes them important to us humans. Plants also help in keeping the environment beautiful and in balance by releasing and taking in some gases vital for our existence.
Man’s innovation has led him to develop a way of planting crops that is known as vertical gardening. This is a method where people use vertical space to plant using containers and other related objects where the plants grow. It has grown popular among people especially because of inadequate land and also for the fact that it looks beautiful.
People have to know that a lot of things need to be put in place for this to be successful. In order to get the best out of this practice, the following steps should be followed. One of the first steps that need to be considered is the type of crops that a person wants to grow. It is very important to specialize in one especially for trial and error purposes before one ventures into the practice fully.
A wall or any other vertical space needs to be carefully selected. The use of containers need to be utilized when looking to venture in this practice because they offer the required support for the plants to grow. This should also be aligned in place with the kind of sunlight that the plants will receive and also the kind of plants that you will grow. It is very important to install a system that will supply adequate water to the crops.
It is also very important to use manure and fertilizer carefully and one by one because this kind of planting is complex as compared to the other ways. When all the above are considered, vertical gardening is seen as a very important way of planting crops and should be embraced more by people.
