If you’re like me, you’re easily distracted when looking at cool stuff online. That’s exactly what happened to me today. I was following the trail of a really cool interior design photo (next post!) and was sidetracked by this shot:
I stopped because I had seen a planted wall recently at the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival and it really captivated my imagination. I could just go wild with this stuff. Here is the one from Epcot:
So when I saw the top picture above, and the close-up view, showing all the cool succulents, I was intrigued. (these pictures were found at Sunset.com)
DIY Green Wall for $79.00
I was surprised to find that the vertical garden pictured above and at top was available as a kit from Flora Grubb Gardens for only $79.95.
They had an even cooler picture:
The unit shown in these pictures is only for outdoor use. There is another option available at the same website for indoor use, but it looks to me like it’s a smaller scale:
This is the Pocket Garden and it looks pretty sharp if you ask me.
But neither of these is as wild as the system they used at Epcot (of course) which was like a foam-rubber/plastic kind of mesh with integrated irrigation and (I gather) built-in drainage systems.
I wonder how long before interior and exterior walls covered in plants will be commonplace. I’m going to try it soon. I’ll let you know how it goes. It’s got to be great for indoor air quality, right?
Anybody out there with experience with this? I’d love to hear about it.
