Vertical Gardens – Project Summary.

Design Brief

Sheoaks was asked to install a vertical garden at a residential property to provide an easily accessible vegetable and herb garden for the family to utilise. In addition, as the fence is lowthere isn’t a lot of privacy between neighbours so this vertical garden also acts as a screento separate two properties.

Project Scope

A 1.2 by 5 metre vertical garden was designed and installed at 600mm above ground level to achieve the desired height to provide some required privacy. The project involved over 100 plants with 6 different types of native and vegetables used.

Plants

The vertical garden offers many advantages whilst providing vegetables and herbs, it also was designed to be a feature wall and so the plant palette consisted of planting native plants, vegetables and herbs. This was broken down into a ratio of 70% native plants with there maining 30% consisting of a mix of vegetables and herbs to allow for all year round interest, contrast and food production. The positioning of the vegie/herb patch was installed to beoptimal height to allow all members of the family to pick and be involved and so it was centredat the bottom of the wall.

Watering.

When designing gardens whether it is on the ground, roof or fence it’s important to consider the maintenance of the plants and ensure a sufficient water supply is installed to allow for hassle free after care. We integrated the irrigation system into the home automated system to allow regular water. We use our own custom designed vertical garden bags so that watering of the garden is less frequent due to their water reservoir. In addition, any over flow of water from the vertical garden would drain into the garden area beneath.

Summary

The family were pleased with their innovative vegie garden, which is a well constructed lightweight and sustainable vertical garden that was the ideal solution to provide privacy, produce food, creates a colourful fence filled with native plants and even gives back to the local fauna. Stage 4
