7. Plant Vertical Vines
Sometimes, your balcony just isn’t big enough to even accomodate bushy plants, and that’s where vertical vines come in. Instead of growing full and out, they grow UP! There are plenty of vines that grow beautifully in pots and can provide wonderful, lush coverage and even add privacy.

8. Make A Crate Garden
If you’re looking for a more sturdy option for your vertical garden (i.e. you have kids that will pull the whole thing over if you’re not watching), this crate garden is a great option. For this particular project, the crate are all handmade to give them a slimmer design than the crates you may find at a craft store. But if you’re not handy with a saw (guilty as charged!) I’m sure it would work just as well with store-bought crates and just a little handiwork to connect them all together. This DIY gives you a modern feel, and most importantly, lots of space to grow herbs and plants.
You’ll definitely want to get all the steps to make this project on your own, so head over to ManMadeDIY.com for all the details.
