Introduction: Vertical Garden, Vegetal Wall / Fense From Recycled Wood

Hi
here's the idea: make a living wall that will be used as ocultation (hide trash can)

the equipment used:

-the structure of a wooden bed (recovery)
-A sheet (Idont now how to name this, I'm french (size: 20 cm more than the channel width, 2.5 times its height, choose a green or camouflage color)
-a stapler
-4 wheels
-compost
-time

the idea is not mine, I found this site: http://tumbleweedtraveller.blogspot.fr/2011_03_01_archive.html

I've only recycled the bed :)

I'll post some new pics when the garden is "green"

the pictures speak for themselves

    Any current pictures? I'd really like to see how this system is fairing.

    great idea. I've seen ladder-type vertical shelf systems - in fact theres a Ladder Allotment website, selling various heights and number of shelves, at various £££££ - but this is a lot more elegant. Would stability be a problem? ,my paving isn't exactly dead level.

    Hi,
    I've put wheels in order to move it easily as I use it to hide some stuff, mine do not weight a lot and is very stable.

    thanks for that!

    of course, you've got the wheels widely spread, which would help stability a lot. I'm a bit wary when it comes to things that are bigger than me!

    yeah sure! me too :)

    Hi,
    well I'm not sure yet :)
    we are having a bad starting summer in France (Paris) so, right now, I'm just testing some plants
