Dining “Pod” With Vertical Garden Wall

November 28, 2010 by

As a focal point for the dining “pod” of their client’s newly renovated duplex apartment, PullTab Design designed a custom planted vertical garden wall.

I like how the green wall wraps around the side of the stairway. The plants offer soft contrast and also complement other materials such as stained concrete, American black walnut, bronze, and steel.

    Most of these vertical gardens have irrigation tubes that continuously hydrate the plants. The system from Plants on Walls, which we used in our Creative Garden Retreat (http://bit.ly/gTSJQG), used these and the excess water is absorbed by the felt pockets, also helping to maintain even hydration. We planted ornamentals, but you can plant edibles–depends on your sunlight, etc. as always. Flora Grubb created stunning vertical gardens using Woolly Pockets and succulents.
