Abstract

A vertical garden is a type of garden created by arranging plants on a vertical surface. It is often used for growing plants on vertical surfaces such as walls, fences, buildings, balconies and terraces in cities with limited garden space. The plants are planted in custom made vertical garden panels or containers and the roots of the plants are placed in a special soil mix in the panel. Special systems can be placed behind the panels for irrigation and fertilization. Vertical gardens provide a suitable environment for many plant species. In such gardens, flowers, herbs, shrubs, vegetables and even trees can be grown. In this paper, cactus and succulents that can be used in vertical gardens will be evaluated.
