When Sangeeta Relan moved from Delhi to Gurgaon, she could not bear to leave her plants behind. But her new house could take only that much. Determined to fit in as many as possible, she decided to expand her outdoors vertically rather than horizontally. Trips made to roadside markets threw up enough options.

Relan picked up outdoor tiles in white to offset the brown wall, had them silicone-coated to withstand dirt stains and pasted them up as shelves. The wall now proudly holds her pretty greens. Relan has more plans. “I will add pots of flowering plants to add to the vibrancy of my outdoors space,” she says.
