Vertical Hydroponic Grow Systems make it possible to achieve high density production in a limited space. For the home Gardener, this means that areas that were too small to be used for growing become feasible garden spots. The grower is also able to conserve water fertilizer inputs while maximizing crop production per area used. For the commercial grower, vertical production not only maximizes the use of space, but also decreases labor and other input costs. Whether used for hobby gardens, small herb and veggie patches or larger scale agricultural operations or research, vertical grow systems are one of the most efficient systems available.
Major advantages of Vertical Hydroponic Grow Systems over tradition hydroponic systems include:
- Flexible grow sites: install on balconies, rooftops or any outdoor vertical surface. With a Vertical Hydroponic System places that were once not feasible become useful garden sites.
- Ergonomic Workflow: no strain from bending, just stand while tending the garden. Seniors can also become more involved in gardening and get fulfillment from growing their own food without heavy strain and burden.
- Efficient use of Space: compact towers allow higher production anywhere from 3-8 times more
plants per meter with vertical growing;
- Efficient use of inputs: Less energy and less water (up to 85% savings on water)
