I always emphasize to you the importance of gardening or having your own garden at home. But did you know that you can still have a vertical garden inside your house? Yes! This is possible. In fact, lots of homeowners have been doing this one because of its effects to the family members as well as to the guests. You may be thinking right now that it sounds awkward, especially that in vertical gardening, you will have plants that will climb up the walls. Before you doubt this idea, you may read its benefits below:
It is more practical to have.
Having a vertical garden inside the house is cheaper compared to the traditional garden. Plus, it is easier to maintain. This is because you don’t need to have a land or to spend for the pesticides just to get rid of pests.
You will be able to control the weather.
Some plants may need to be protected, especially if the weather is too harsh. Some of them may need you to transfer them inside your house or in your green house, particularly during winter. If you have an indoor garden, a problem like this is controllable.
It provides more beauty inside.
Not all houses have their own indoor vertical garden. But if you have this one, you can’t help it but to stare at it in awesomeness. It’s very unique. You tend to bring the outside world into your inner home. You will have the chance to see its beauty anytime of the day as long as you want too. Just imagine going home tired and yet you can stay in your indoor garden, smelling the scent of the flowers and enjoying the scenery. That’s very relaxing indeed. Your tiredness and stress will surely go away. The ideas are limitless. You can plant flowers. There are also some vegetables which may be suitable inside the house. All you have to do is to research for the right plants to be planted.
You will have the opportunity to always have fresh air.
I have read some of the studies that plants and trees have the ability to make you feel better when you have problems. This is because they take away carbon dioxide and they produce oxygen which is what your bodies need. Some say that it is much better to stay under the tree or to be surrounded with plants when you have problems. You don’t have to go out just for you to inhale some fresh air because it is already accessible inside your house, not to mention that it is for free.
It is very flexible and functional.
As I’ve said, you can plant flowers for aesthetic purpose; but you can also plant vegetables and herbs too. This only shows how flexible and effective it is to have an indoor vertical garden. In addition to that, you can also maintain living a healthy lifestyle. You can’t have an access to them anytime you want without worrying if you will be exposed to the heat of the sun or if it is raining outside.
It improves you emotionally.
Because it has the ability to make you feel better and reduce your stress, it is a good therapy for you. Either you will be the one who will maintain it or you will just stay in the garden, both of these are still good for you emotionally. Like the traditional gardening, you can use this as your exercise. You can even talk to your plants to make you feel better.
There are still more benefits of having a vertical garden inside your house. You may discover some of them. But please once you do, kindly share it with us so that we will learn from it too.
