A mobile garden is something that sounds like an impossible task, and one that would be painstaking, but if you plant your garden in a way that it can be mobile, it won’t cost you too much trouble to take it with you. This is perfect for renters and those who live lives of traveling.
Here is a way you can plant a garden that is mobile:
Of course, the largest garden wouldn’t be a good idea, but you can create a smaller mobile garden that can follow you wherever you choose to live.
Plants in Pots
The easiest way to create a traveling garden is to plant in pots. You need to make sure that these plants are the right kinds that are able to thrive in pots. Yucca and Bergenia, Japanese Pieris and Arborvitae,which has great health benefits. There are many more plants that thrive all year in pots. A florist or nursery will be able to assist you with finding plants that will suit your needs.
Planting in the ground
If you’d rather plant in the ground but still looking to create a mobile garden, you can plant your pot and plant and put it into a raised bed. A raised bed is lifted slightly above ground and surrounded by stone or wood. You see this type of planting on office parking lots because they need to be mobile in case the business moves and want to take the plants with them to the new location. You can do the same moving from home to home.
Plants that Thrive in Water
The English Ivy and the Philodendron, and Chinese Evergreen are just three common water plants. Certainly if a plant can thrive in water, you can simply move them easily to a new home or new outdoor location. Again, be sure you consult your florist or nursery sales person about which plant will thrive year-round in water. Some water plants, like other plants have seasons in which they may need to be potted or re-potted.
Garden art is becoming truly popular and no matter what kind of mobile garden you choose, you can decorate the area with garden sculptures and all sorts of other garden art, and of course those items are simple to move.
