Looking for some modular garden systems to try for your home? If you're living in the city and don't really have a lot of space, then these ideas are for you! Just in time for a happy spring season.
Modular Garden Systems
Unlike the usual garden designs and systems, the following 5 ones are truly appealing for an urban atmosphere as well as for a huge outdoor garden within the city outskirts. Find your own lovely concept and go extraordinary this summer. The first highlight in this list includes the popular gardening in numerous plant subsystems, a.k.a. modular gardening.
1. Shelf Gardening
The vast array of options when choosing the perfect size and shape of the modules gives you an unparalleled advantage to make your own modular system by yourself. It is just enough to buy the perfect wooden shelves from the store and to improvise with some DIY cutting skills. The wooden shelves are used as racks for all the plants and pots, while the pots themselves are separators between each shelf. In this way, you get a reliable gardening system for your home's rooftop or for a small outdoor terrace. The modular gardening also gives you a unique opportunity to arrange all the modules according to your style and taste. Not to mention that the smallest modular systems are even suitable for indoor gardening.
2. Planting in containers
Keeping plants and vegetables in a container is another major highlight in this list. You may need a bigger container if you want to plant fruits, vegetables and other edibles, while in the meantime, the bigger the container – the stronger should be the bottom area of the container. On the other hand, the smaller the container – the easier for a relocation, which makes it very comfortable for keeping your miniature garden indoor in the winters and outdoor in the summers. The garden design is another essential element that determines the type and the size of the container. If you want to make something like pathways or rows of soil between the plants – a greater idea is to imagine in advance the leaf clearance when the plants grow up. Yet there is nothing to beat the great control of the garden system in a container, especially if it measures around 1x1x1 meters cube container.
3. Gardening in a box
The third appealing system is gardening in a box, which is a very similar method to the one, mentioned above. However, you can grow your plants in several smaller boxes and you can arrange them in a different way to change the entire landscape. What better way for plant keeping at home! Even just a quick lawn planting in three, four or in more boxes is a very impressive way to surprise your guests and friends. The choice of the soil is the next important highlight, which plays a major role for the correct growing of the lawns, the distance between the periods for trimming and watering. The right choice of the landscaping should also be high on your agenda, because the simplest green lawn might be truly effective and captivating if it covers a series of small hills and valleys throughout the different boxes.
4. Fence Gardening
Fence gardening lets you to create your own green wall for the outdoor terrace, for a huge garden or even for a small wall at home. The plants only need enough time for growing up correctly as well as to cover the entire wall. You can use edibles too, but for the natural shadow from the plants with larger leaves is something that you don't want to miss. The huge green wall of plants all over the fence will transform the terrace into your own lovely place for privacy and relaxation.
5. Gardening with a frame structure
A huge iron or a wooden structure with numerous branches and empty spaces is just perfect for gardening at home. You can make your own structure and to choose the width of each piece of the frame, which can form the shape of a tree, flower or even a table.
