Air plants make great additions to vertical gardens. Find small cups or pots that can be mounted on the wall, and tuck an air plant into each one. You'll want to make sure to put them in a place that gets plenty of light, but usually, vertical gardens can be easily positioned in a way that lines up with a particular window. Vertical gardens can make any space look trendy and unusual, as they offer a much more dynamic way to decorate a wall than static photographs or paintings do. If you're also a big fan of wall art, invest in an air plant with tones that will compliment those in your favorite artwork, and hang them near each other.
You will also need seeds. I typically only grow arugula, but you can certainly grow a mix of greens. Look for mixes that germinate and sprout at about the same time, as it is important to have uniform growth for your harvest. Mesclun mixes work well or you can make your own mixes by combining your favorite greens. If you are concerned about germination times, grow your greens in separate containers and combine them after harvest.
In some cases, a lawn can try to take over your garden beds, sidewalk, or driveway. That’s where a good edger will come in handy. You can use either edging shears or an edging iron. These tools will help you cut the grass along the edges of your sidewalks, driveways, and garden beds for a crisp look. They work like scissors or a knife to cut through the grass, allowing you to remove the excess grass and reveal the lines that were hidden underneath it.
Several studies have demonstrated the positive effects of potted plants in offices, schools and hospitals. Specifically, they've been proven to lower systolic blood pressure, improve reaction times, increase attentiveness, improve attendance, create a feeling of well-being, improve perceptions of a space, lower anxiety during recovery from surgery, and increase job satisfaction.
