Yes, it will take good effort and money to build. But will improve your backyard in a big way. Try, and you will never regret it.

Everyone has plastic bottles in their house. Some bottles are big in size, and some are small. Do not throw them away in the trash can but use them to build a DIY vertical garden just like it.

Choose those big plastic bottles and cut holes in them at a good distance and the design as you want. Then, fill the bottle with soil, some fertilizer, and obviously water on a daily basis to let the seeds grow. 

Set them up in your front door or in the fence line in good numbers, and you will see the amazement of this garden idea.

This idea will take the most effort to build but will look amazing if you set them in your backyard in a good number that fills the backyard completely.

Just join some woods in a way that lets the soil fit there and then plant your favorite plants in them, just like the plastic bottle garden idea. The idea is similar, but here you are using wood design instead of plastics.

And one more thing, you have to hang them for a better view in large numbers. If you can not, then it’s okay. That will also look good. The decision is up to you.

Get some wooden baskets and hang your plants in there. Set them up in a way that creates a design. You can also use colorful plastic pots for this purpose. 

But I prefer the wooden branched pots that will give me a natural vibe. You will be amazed when those plants will roll over your floor, creating an amazing hill-like look.

7. Use Small Climbing Plants on Walls

Use Small Climbing Plants on Walls

Only use this idea if you have a wall in the backyard. It is not that suitable for wooden fence lines or any other thing. Okay.

Plant a few small odd-shaped plants in the ground and let them climb the wall themselves. But do not let them grow freely. Maintain them so that they do not cover the whole wall but keep their distance.

8. Buy A Vertical Wall for The Garden
