Florafelt Pocket Panels Modular Living Wall System
Our innovative design routes water to the central layer and protects walls from moisture and keeps the front dry. Simply wrap the plants with the root wrappers in their existing soil and slide them into the pockets, creating your own wall gardens. Align multiple panels for massive living walls.
The felt is made from recycled plastic water bottles. It is a non-toxic fiber that is indestructible and tough. Over time roots grow into the moist felt. Felt pockets stretch open to receive 4 to 6 inch potted plants. Each pocket is 10″ wide by 6″ deep.
Change and Rearrange
Our system of Root Wrappers and pockets allows you to transform your vertical garden for any mood or occasion. Experiment with color schemes, textures and combinations. Since the small amount of soil is neatly contained in the root wrapper, sliding plants in and out of pockets is as simple as stuffing an envelope.
Easy to Maintain
It is only necessary to water the top row of pockets, letting the moisture spread to the lower levels. The microfibers provide a highly efficient grid to deliver water to every plant. Because water flows down, you don’t have to worry about favoring the top row of plants over the bottom levels. Based on how much collects at the bottom, you will quickly learn how much water is sufficient for your vertical garden. Runoff can be collected in drip trays to be recirculated or drained away. If you’re living wall is outside, simply let the water drip to the ground.
Durable and Safe
Florafelt is hypo-allergenic, moth-proof, mildew and odor-resistant and contains no irritants or carcinogens. The backing board is a sturdy plastic sheeting extruded from polypropylene (HDPE). Its fluted ribs support both surfaces, making it lightweight, tough and abuse resistant. It is both chemical and water resistant.
Synthetic Felt Pockets
High tensile strength and resiliency – Superior thermal insulation and acoustical properties (0.66 noise reduction coefficient) – Will not break down or bottom out – Hypo-allergenic – Moth-proof; mildew and odor-resistant – Contains No Irritants Or Carcinogens. – Lightweight And formable. – Passes FMVSS 302.
Pockets are stapled to a lightweight rigid plastic board that holds the pockets in place and provides an air space behind the wall that protects walls from constant moisture.

Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters are fashioned from synthetic nylon felt, creating a soft, luxuriant fabric that is non-toxic, UV stable and will last a lifetime. Recycled synthetic material creates an ideal environment for vertical gardens, and artists and architects favor them over organic materials that decay quickly. Your vertical garden will develop its own unique microenvironment, and exposure to the air facilitates the efficient breakdown of molecules into nutrients. While other vertical garden systems can create beautiful living designs, they often become waterlogged. With our patented pleated and folded design, the front of the pockets remains dry. The panels are mounted to lightweight, fluted plastic board that protects walls from moisture and provides additional support.
Modular Panel System
We designed Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters to hang on walls, fences or other supports. They can be framed for a stylish look and trimmed to any size. Innovative designers and architects have used our system in a variety of unconventional but startlingly beautiful ways, even sloping surfaces that create a thrilling illusion of a river flowing with plants and flowers.
For best results provide an automatic irrigation system with regular and constant irrigation. For most situations we suggest to irrigate the living wall 4 times a day with a short duration of 5-10 minutes and a much longer duration for tall walls. Test and adjust for each situation.

Custom Recirculating System
In situations where you do not have access to a drain, you may need to set up a Custom Recirculating System with a tank, pump, and timer. Recirculating systems are harder to install but will water much more effectively so they may only need to run once a day for 30 minutes or even much less for low-light interior installations.
We Can Help
If you have a large installation we can help. Let us know the width and height? If it’s indoors or outdoors? Is drainage available? Is an electrical plug nearby? Does it get sun or shade? Or will it need artificial LED lights? And send photos of the project area so we can help you assess your best options. Contact Us
