Grow up for a new slant on gardening
By Tracy Hobson Lehmann, staff writer
When Sharee Neff wants to sprinkle fresh herbs into bread dough, she snips leaves from pots hanging on the wall next to the kitchen sink. She and husband Alan do the same when they’re cooking dinner.
Alan Neff, an architect with Robey Architects and manager of the Pittman-Sullivan Community Garden in his East Side neighborhood, installed the vertical garden about two years ago. The couple wanted fresh herbs close at hand and found convenience in a wall-mounted modular system manufactured by Dirtt.
Other gadgets, too, give gardeners a way to grow upward, whether for aesthetics, proximity or space. Artsy green thumbs can create designs or spell words in sedums and small succulents. Many want to grow herbs and vegetables.
