March 14, 2011 by Genevieve 7 Comments Two of my favorite bloggers, Rebecca Sweet and Susan Morrison, have just released a book on vertical gardening called Garden Up!
Whether you have a skinny bed with a big blank wall that needs softening, or a balcony garden needing interest and screening without taking away floor space, these ladies have got us covered with DIY projects, plant suggestions, and design tips for tackling any area that could use a vertical boost. They shared a number of professional tricks about when to choose each type of foliage texture when you’re hiding something unsightly, and how to distract from utilitarian but ugly elements.
Lest you edible gardeners feel left out, many of the projects featured edibles used in new and exciting ways – definitely worthy of the Front Yard Food movement! The best part about the book is the light, approachable style with which it’s written.
Whether it’s an ugly (and noisy) air conditioning unit or a looming utility pole, most of us have something in our gardens that we wish would just go away.


Their design skills were evident in making what could be a complex topic, feel simple and straightforward.
Susan and Rebecca show some easy but impressive garden projects that even a novice could tackle in a few hours for a professional, gorgeous look.
I think this edible wall could stand proudly next to the snootiest of ornamental gardens, don’t you?
Reading this book felt like having a cup of tea with two smart, talented, and occasionally silly designers. The owner of North Coast Gardening, she is also a contributing editor at Garden Design Magazine and has written for numerous print and online publications.
When I heard they were writing it I was so excited, because gaining height without adding width is a design challenge that is present in so many situations.
When that’s not possible, vertical garden techniques can help to blend, hide, or soften those offenders. Their bold use of color and fearless plant pairing made for some exciting combinations that I am already inspired to try (goodbye, ugly chicken coop wall, hellooo succulents!).


I learned a ton about how to make the most of small spaces, and am now armed with some lovely photos and how-to to inspire clients with. Head on over to Susan and Rebecca’s blogs to participate, and don’t forget to pick up your copy of Garden Up!
Don’t worry; we’re not suggesting you reach for a makeup bag— learning a few easy design strategies and knowing the right plants to use is all it takes to make those eyesores disappear. At less than $12, it’s a steal for the amount of practical information contained within.
