Land8 is the premier social network for landscape architecture.
This vertical wall was installed about a month and a half ago, using recycled plastic crates. In length it's 7meters long, height about 2meters, but in width it only takes up 400mm space. this makes it ideal for smaller gardens. On this application, we installed it to create some privacy from the neighbors property, and to hide an existing garden shed.
Basically it's a matter of finding a crate (sell) that is stack-able, lining it out with porous membrane internally, and filling with a polyester-organic mixture which drains well, and is lightweight. The plants are then planted from the front, and over time roots well into the organic medium. The entire wall is irrigated with automated drip irrigation, ensuring the plants do not dry out.
