This is nothing personal just a suggestion for people who have only a small yard or balcony. When space is at a premium you can extend the planting area by growing vertically. This is a list of twelve ways you can make a vertical garden. As with many of these ideas some are more practical than others.

I found the list on the Fantastic Viewpoint website.
