A hanging garden require support and what can be better than a pergola to support your vines and hanging plants? Besides it is a great space-saving way to have both a garden and a patio in one place. Pergola has a structure of a trellis so you can easily plant any crawling plants as well as hang a few flower pots if you want to add a pop of color to your garden.


Trellis is a popular thing in the backyard but it’s most often used vertically. You can turn a trellis into a horizontal support structure much like a pergola for your hanging garden. Used as a visor a horizontal trellis can give your house or porch a really nice suburban look.

Trees and shrubs with hanging or creeping foliage are a great way to create haning gardens. They don’t need additional support and they are among most beautiful in the world. Willows and wisteria are amazing for creating hanging gardens. A wisteria shrub can be used to cover a facade with help of a vertical trellis or it can be supported by a pergola or an arbor.

Other amazing hanging plants for your garden could be String of Pearls or Senecio rowleyanus, creeping Jenny, and Million Hearts aka Dischidia ruscifolia.
