Vertical Garden

This is an easy and beautiful way to beautify your house. All you need to do is save your water bottles for a relatively longer time. The more you save, the prettier your garden will be. Keep these bottles in their original shape as you will need them to be resistant and firm. Cut the bottles from the top and fill the bottles with dirt. Make sure it is fertile. Sow the seeds in the soil. Choose your own patterns but make sure that each bottle has one under it except for obviously the last ones. Fill the bottles with water and watch it trickle down in to the others. Water once a day and be sure that the wall you chose gets a lot of sunlight. Wait for them to grow and admire the gorgeous vertical garden you have to planted and made. Vertical Garden
