Do you live in an area without space for a garden? A great alternative to having potted plants is to make your own micro forest garden planter. This is an awesome way to grow various plants and even trees if you want something that is edible and sustainable.
This project uses stainless steel tanks for plant containers and they can be expensive. As an alternative, you can use some food grade plastic barrels.
A micro forest garden is an awesome way for you to enjoy urban permaculture. This is also a great way for people living in a city to have a garden that is totally different from a container garden. These planters will be really heavy, but can be placed in any flat area like a patio.
