LIVING WALLS photograph courtesy of Plants On Walls B Y M E L I S S A C . G I L L E S P I E Incorporate vertical gardens into your landscape design and make your neighbors green with envy. Living walls, green walls, or vertical gardens—you've probably seen them in the lobbies of hotels or the atriums of shopping centers—are fast becoming more common in single- and multi-family residences. Usually mounted on the interior or exterior walls of buildings, these vertical installations offer a refreshingly green space experience. Chris Bribach, CEO of Plants On Walls, created this living wall of succulents using the Florafelt Vertical Garden System for a Toll Brothers Jordan Ranch model home in the San Francisco Bay Area. "Our handmade planters are designed to use the micro-fibers in PET felt so that all the plants are watered equally." The felt is made from recycled plastic bottles, a nylon nontoxic fiber that is indestructible and tough. The material provides a safe growing medium that is pH neutral and nonreactive, so you can garden organically right on your wall—it's even safe for vegetables and herbs. Roots grow right into the felt, which comes alive, thanks to the microbiology in the soil. "Our planters come with our custom root-wrapping system. This lets you change and arrange your living wall at will, while maintaining the integrity of every plant in its own soil," adds Bribach.
