Aqua Perma Solar Firma Vertical Lettuce Garden Landscape, Sydney
What Houzz contributors are saying:
In the rear garden, outdoor seating doubles as an aquaponics system for fish-waste harvesting and fertilizing the vertical lettuce garden running along the wall behind it. The owners’ interest in permaculture — gardens that sustain both themselves and their caregivers — drove the design of the rear garden. The owners say the garden acts as a social hub, drawing visitors subconsciously through the home and outside to sit among the plants and the chickens. They add that they enjoy the changing nature of a productive garden: Last summer, a papaya grew out of their compost, growing into a tree full of ripe fruit.
Vertical GardensIn this Australian garden, there’s a lot more going on than meets the eye. The vertical edible garden incorporates an aquaponics system for fish waste harvesting, which provides fertilizer. It has built-in seating on top of this system, and the homeowners’ chickens roam through here as well. See more of this almost completely off-the-grid home and garden
