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...

also some tips and great products are found here: https://www.plantsonwalls.com/florafelt-products/

I've only recycled the bed :)

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

the pictures speak for themselves

    Hello, my name is Chris Bribach and this is my patented Florafelt living wall system that I designed and developed in 2007. This pleated folded concept along with our proprietary growing materials are sold through our website at plantsonwalls.com. You can clearly see how we offer this exact version of our planting method with our Florafelt Pro System.

    We don't mind if you share this image however please provide proper credits for this in your main heading:

    We have worked hard to develop this and have been selling this for over 10 years now. We are very excited that you are inspired by this idea to grow living walls and you may enjoy the simplicity we offer with our ready-made products and DIY materials.

    Thank you so much! My only comments on the system you set up is that the roots have nowhere to go in a small container which makes it more like a gutter type container living wall. The second issue is using a wood material to support the garden as it will quickly rot. I can see how your attracted to the idea as it is a very low-cost way to create a seasonal or temporary garden. Best of luck with your planting and I look forward to seeing photos as it grows in.

    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!
