The price of real estate is rocketing in CA, and the garden space is getting smaller and smaller, do you agree that the lot size is almost half of the ones before 80’s? This Triolife Plant Pyramid allows you to plant any type of garden in a small space by growing vertically! When planing your backyard layout and trying to right the planting space and you do not have sufficient room for all the plants you wish to have, try out going vertical.
This wonderful planter is great for those who don’t have much space or anyone looking for something completely different.

In the first picture you can see the side of the pyramid, to get an idea of the height, on the far side of the side walk are Mimulus (Monkey Flowers), Appleblossom Fibrous (Wax) Begonias, and Dwarf Marigolds (among others).
Thirty seven plants (forty one if you want to be brave and put an extra one in the lower level triangles), growing quite nicely, with very good bloom, in an area only 2 feet square! Looking closely at the drawing you will see that there are 4 boards used on each of 5 levels.
The numbers that I've put in the center of each planting triangle would be the number of plants that you can place in each area based on a plant with a 6 inch spacing for a regular planting bed.. Take a bit of time, put this together right and what you'll end up with is a really nice living bouquet that stands a couple of feet tall, allows you to enjoy the flowers from a bit of a distance instead of having to stand right above the bed. I'd love to see pictures of other folks pyramids and variations in using vertical growing space.
When planing your garden layout and trying to correct the planting space and you do not have enough space for all the plants you wish to have, try going vertical.
And always feel that there is little space for growing fresh veggies or herbs or other gardening yourself ?
This pyramid was planted with Plum Petunias, Double Petunias, Dwarf Morning Glory (Convulvulous), Moss Rose and Lobelia.
You'll want it to look kinda symmetrical, although I know some folks that skew them a bit to make them look different.
Keep the flowers dead headed, keep an eye out for any weeds that may try to sneak in and give it a really good, deep watering once a week - more if you see the plants are in need.. Any where that you'd like to increase the number of plants that you can grow in the available space.
Directions: For making your tower last for more than 3 seasons, we recommend you varnish the plywood and also add a layer of gravel and rocks under the dirt to help with the water drainage.
This DIY Garden Tower Planter (strawberry planter) will give you the extra gardening and planting space you need. Its patented design allows your garden’s root system to take advantage of a large soil volume to ensure maximum growth for all of your plants. You only have to make a few cuts from and into the pieces of a pallet and then just arrange your planks and plants to make your space saving vertical garden. The tower only demands an investment of about $200 to build, and a bit of time (around 16 hrs).
But after reading it, as usual, my mind wandered and I flew with it with an excellent result, I think. In the center picture the pink flowers in the lower right are an annual phlox (they are the same height as Petunias), with some Dusty Miller, and the photo on the right gives an idea as to the height of the pyramid again in relation to the marigold bed.
Since each level is held in place by the soil that it is filled with it is surprisingly solid and super simple to set up, or to move at the end of the season, if you choose.


Remember the roots will be growing toward the center of the pyramid and will have plenty of room so you can plant rather thickly and still get excellent root development and growth. Think about plant heights and colors as you put things together (or plant all the same and make it look like a gorgeous mound of flowers!) You can get really creative with this, I can't imagine one that wouldn't turn out simply breath-taking.
It's an excellent way of taking advantage of vertical space for plants that are not normally thought of in a 3-D concept. The tower only needs an investment of about $200 to build, and a bit of time (approximately 16 hours). This is a great DIY Garden Project but because of the compound angles that need to be cut, it requires a compound miter saw which does take some skill to use correctly.This tower set us back around $200 dollars to build ourselves but everything was available at our local home improvement store which makes for easy one stop shopping. Plus when you point one corner of your Triolife Plant Pyramid north it will ensure all sides get sun. The soil will most likely have settled from the watering and you have some free space on the surface of the soil.. This DIY project did take quite a bit of time, approximately 4 days after work, so about 16 hours, which can make for a good long weekend project. Instructions: For creating your tower last for far more than 3 seasons, we advocate you varnish the plywood and also add a layer of gravel and rocks underneath the dirt to help with the water drainage.
Once you've done that position the largest one on the area where you would like to build your pyramid garden (you'll want this area already dug and prepared for planting.) take a few minutes and work toward getting the top edge to be pretty close to level. Or, just plant within the pyramid and you'll have a flower bed that you can easily use a weed whacker around the edge of to keep everything nice and neat after mowing. After soaking all four sections on a level go back up to the center top and water it again. We're choking out the weeds with this step and making sure that the pyramid retains moisture.
We also added a layer of rocks and gravel underneath the dirt to try to help with water drainage. What we're doing here is making sure that the pyramid is soaked all the way through so the the roots will grow deep into the soil. Also, since the upper most layers will dry out the fastest, in the future we want to rig up a time controlled spray irrigation line from the very top of our garden pyramid planter. Since they are planted so closely together we want the roots to grow deep into it and not spread sideways.
Attach the first board for holding the garden soil in place and pour the first load of dirt in it. By doing this the top layers will not dry out and the water will also trickle down to the base layers ensuring even watering if we time it correctly. We were thinking of using a large PVC pipe with small dripping holes to water our strawberries. We may build another one and make a space in the center piece of our cedar post for the PVC pipe to fit into. Attach the very first board for holding the backyard soil in place and pour the very first load of dirt in it. My only change at this point addresses the amount of what I see as wasted soil, which increases the lower you go on the tower. Window Boxing each level where needed or building a secondary internal pyramid to form a back wall would eliminate the unneeded dirt. The very top of course and maybe a couple levels down wouldn’t need this boxing or back wall. Would be a great sell.Reply 8 Bucuresti January 17, 2015 at 11:12 amCan i use these structure for growning chili pepper?


For the top of the side pieces of the frame, do you know what the measurement where they meet up with the top trim?
CharleneReply 14 Paul M May 11, 2014 at 2:20 amOne thing you can do to prolong the life of the wood is spray the interior (the part that will touch dirt) with plasti-dip.
Just enough to fill 1 to 2 inches full of rocks that way as it rains the soil is damp from each of the levels.
About how many strawberry plants can you plant in this tower?Reply 21 DIY Project Help Tips March 25, 2014 at 4:12 pmAlison, For strawberries, space them 8 to 12 inches apart, with rows about 1 to 2 feet apart. I like this idea.Reply 23 Doug January 24, 2014 at 3:25 pmWould it work to run a soaker hose in a spiral around your center column? We create several design for the organic community here and all we use if redwood or ceder.
We attached the timer to our water pipe, cut lengths of tubing and put a section of soaker hose in each container.
