Vertical Gardening- Indoor Edition
Hi plant lovers!
Has anyone out there seen the beautiful 'living walls' that have been popular over the last few years? So pretty!
Swoon-worthy, right? But don't be intimidated by the scale of these beautiful living walls! You can create your own vertical green space on a smaller, very managable scale! Here are some fun examples we found:
We love the succulents for their unique shapes and soft colors, and a kitchen lettuce garden is such a great idea! Look at how compact it is; fresh salad everyday for a few feet of floor is our idea of a good use of space!
We've been experimenting with our own living wall for a few months now and have been really pleased with the results! It's about 1' wide and 2.5' tall and makes a big impact with the combination of color and texture in showcases. What do you think?:
The frame is sleek and decorative while the back (the side that is hidden) is specially designed to prevent water from damaging the wall space behind. (A very important quality if you are hanging your living wall on drywall!)
If you're interested in vertical gardens, we highly encourage you to get started! They're a fun, creative way to decorate your indoor space, and they provide great clean air benefits, too! (In case you missed that post)
