Hydroponics gardener shares money-saving hack for building vertical gardens

Vertical gardening can be an expensive venture, but with this hack on TikTok from Mike VanDuzee (@the_good_mr_hyde), you can make it happen for just a few dollars.

The scoop
VanDuzee’s Instagram and YouTube page are dedicated to teaching viewers about hydroponic gardening — a type of gardening that grows plants using nutrient-filled water instead of soil. This option allows for a more space-efficient garden, as it is often seen in the form of garden towers that stack pots on top of each other.

VanDuzee’s DIY method to make your own tower garden is cheap and easy, requiring only a few materials: five-gallon buckets, a drill, seedlings, pool noodles, and nutrient-rich water, which you can find his recipe for here.

You’ll want to drill small holes four inches apart near the top of the bucket and then use them as a pilot to drill bigger two-inch holes, along with a few extra small holes for ventilation.

Then, add your nutrient solution and thread pool noodles through the larger holes to anchor the plants.

“You can enjoy fresh vegetables and leafy greens right in your own backyard,” VanDuzee explains.
