Our research revolves around the development of a automated vertical garden. An automated vertical garden will allow people to save space in land scarce areas such as Singapore. It also saves water, time, resources and manpower. This garden is applicable for large scale industrial use, building or home-grown vegetables. With automated water and lighting systems, one can expect little water and electrical wastage. 

Our design is soilless and uses water with nutrient solution through capillary action (How Stuff Works, 2009). It is the tendency for liquids to rise in tubes of small, narrow diameters. Soilless cultivation reduces the risk of soil borne diseases and pests and is less labour intensive (Saygin, 2011). The vertical garden can be used indoors, especially in old and abandoned buildings.
