Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters were used to create a bathroom living wall experience for bathing.
Chris and Gary used a 12-Pocket Florafelt Vertical Garden Planter to create an easy care succulent display for their San Francisco balcony. Succulents are great for saving water and can be hand watered weekly.
The planting design incorporated earthy tones to blend with the natural wood siding. Then incorporated a base of green on the edges to give definition. Use of trailers let it hang down wile other succulents will reach upward.
The Florafelt 12-Pocket Planter is 32 inches wide and 24 inches tall. The felt pockets are pre-stapled to a lightweight plastic board that has nylon tabs on the top corners. Simply hung from deck screws.
Succulents are a great way to learn vertical gardening if you have the right conditions. First you’ll need lots of bright light and no frost conditions. Best for our more arid states and continents. Chris and Gary use a hand pumped pressure sprayer to water once a week and also rinse off the plants. Succulents like to go nearly dry between waterings. They are so easy you even place a cutting in soil and they will root and grow.
For their design each pocket receives a felt wrapped wrap grouping of plants. In this case two 4 inch potted plants are placed into each pocket. By arranging pairs or groupings a more detailed flow can be created.

Certain Hollywood stars are well-known for their passion for the environment, including actress Jessica Alba, who lives and breathes it. This celebrity advocate proves that each of us can make a major contribution right in our own homes and in our daily lives.
Many folks don’t realize that Ms. Alba is also the founder of The Honest Company, an eco-friendly line of home and baby products that celebrates healthy living. So when it came time to give her Beverly Hills home a makeover, naturally she went eco-friendly there too and included a Florafelt vertical garden.
Jessica opted for a hearty mix of succulents that are low maintenance and, most importantly, require little water in their drought-prone habitat.
Along with chemical-free paint, PVC-free vinyl chairs and finding many of her furnishings on Craigslist, Jessica proves that eco-friendly living is stylish and sustainable.
Living walls inspire people the world over! Here’s another great review:
“You’d be surprised at the number of positive comments and questions I get regarding the wall. We live at the top of Twin Peaks in a heavily touristed area due to the dramatic views of the city. There’s not a week that goes by where a few people don’t stop and ask how the garden works, many of them from foreign countries. I installed the automatic watering and feeding systems just as explained from the web site, so I’m able to say it is the easiest part of the garden for upkeep. Thanks again for the great product.”
