Growing in Urban areas often limits the space you have available. Growing vertically is a great way to increase the growing area and it has some positive effects.

The first way I love to grow vertically is by using my Pea Obelisk which are free standing structures. They are great for small bodied fruit like snap peas. Typically I plant the peas and just leave them to climb.

Trellis are a great way to increase production. I have built some great trellis on the back fence for my grapes. This allows me to permanently attach them to the fence and trellis while allowing for sufficient airflow. Another great trellis the Mel Bartholemues electrical conduit trellis. These structures stand free on a base of re-bar.

Here is the link to the Trellis Building Video

Hanging baskets again optimize the space you can grow in. I have put some strawberries in these hanging baskets where previously there was nothing. They also form a good anchor for our grape trellis.

Bambo is probably one of the cheapest ways to grow vertically. for some of my tomatoes I simply stuck a long bit in the ground and velcro taped them to the bamboo.

Companion planting like the three sisters is a great organic way to plant. In my case I planted garlic and put peas close by. the garlic supports the peas and allow both to climb.

The side benefits to goring vertically include better air flow reducing disease issues from the soil and moisture. The second is it keeps the produce away from ground and the pests that frequent the "low hanging fruit"

Some of my favorite childhood memories are of gardening with my parents and brothers. This channel is about low cost organic urban gardening in zone 3. I am by no means an expert gardener however I love to share my experiments and journey garden year round.
