DIY Vertical Garden with Reclaimed Gutters


When Suzanne Forsling moved to Juneau, Alaska from Iowa, she found that it was a little bit harder to get her garden to grow.  Frustrated by cold soil, scarce sunlight, hungry slugs, root maggots, porcupines, cats, bears and ravens she got resourceful. She got her crops off the cold ground and into the light by affixing gutters to the wood siding of her house on the sunny side and using them as planters! This is really a great space saving idea for those with green thumbs and not enough yard to exercise them.
