Phoenix's Flower Street Urban Gardens Simplifies the Vertical Garden

Page 2 of 2

Initially, Billingsley began experimenting with vertical gardening when he noticed his elderly father having trouble reaching the raised bed in his backyard. He started thinking about designing a gardening experience that could be accessible for everyone, regardless of physical limitations.

Having spent several years traveling to teach design for L'Oréal, Billingsley had experience to start with. He says that working with his hands is something he truly enjoys. Though Flower Street Urban Gardens has experienced huge growth since opening last summer, Billingsley still does most of the installations by hand.
