Gorgeous Vertical Gardening Beds

Vertical gardening beds make wonderful use of space. They add appealing architecture to your garden and create a fun edible space when you grow food on them.

Our kids loved running through our pole bean tunnel we had many years ago, and it was easier to harvest from as the beans were easily accessible because we used a vertical gardening bed.

  1. I love the idea of using boxes/wooden-cartons for vertical gardening. That’s a great way of recycling material as well as making the garden look unique. I am definitely going to use this idea.

  2. Hi there!
    This may not be the proper place to inquire but I’m impressed with your site so…here goes! Ignore me if it’s not where you want this question!?
    I’m NEW…NEW!! to gardening.
    I would really like to make a garden with my grandson as part of his homeschooling as well as teaching him to be healthy, to recycle, to give back to the earth and care for it, to teach math and science….and more!
    The garden seems like the perfect resource for these things AND BE FUN!
    Sooo…
    ***Where should I start without taking on too large a project thus finding we are both overwhelmed?

    • Hi Nickie!

      That sounds fun, we homeschool too and the garden is a huge part of their science and wellness education, even math with counting or weighing the harvests and record keeping.

      I would definitely start small and focus on crops that you like to eat and are easy to grow. Find a sunny place in your backyard and build one small raised bed (2 if you’re up for it/finances allow). If you don’t have space for a garden you can use containers just remember sometimes they dry out too fast. I learned a lot on HOW to grow food from the west coast seeds growing guide (free!) https://www.westcoastseeds.com/how-to-grow-guides/
      I also learned a lot from making mistakes but those open up excellent learning opportunities to find out what went wrong. I have a ‘little gardeners’ section on te blog of posts pertaining to kids gardening: //familyfoodgarden.com/category/little-gardeners/
      and here’s the beginner gardening ones: //familyfoodgarden.com/?s=beginner+gardening
      I plan on writing more beginner friendly articles too this spring and summer to stay tuned 🙂

      All the best & happy homeschool gardening!

  3. Hello. I am writing an article on raised bed gardening for TheSpruce.com and would like to use the photo of bean trellis at the top of this article as an example. I would, of course, give you credit and a link back. Please let me know if this is agreeable to you. Thank you. Marie Iannotti~

  4. I love the a framed bean trellis that goes over the path. The lumber used looks like it has been pressure treated. I thought there were toxins in this type of wood. Could you put a disclaimer on the picture or website about the danger in using that type of wood?
