How to Make a Vertical Garden From Disposable Cups

December 17, 2011 by

Turn man-made into man-saved by creating a Re-DIY vertical green living wall as Turkish design firm Designnobis did. For their Naturewall, the designers collected about ten used plastic disposable coffee cups, washed them off, then created a simple flexible metal holder system to hang the cups, transforming them into a vertical garden.

The Naturwall system includes an aluminum metal frame with 10-12 cup holders that one can set up unlimited variations to accomodate any particular size and type of plants.

Naturwall received a Green Dot Build Award, which recognizes innovative design and architecture that achieves the highest level of environmental responsibility.

    I really enjoy all the great design I see with plants growing vertically, but the practicalities interfere with taking them seriously. This is a lovely thing, uses recyclable coffee cups, but where is the drainage, and where is the light? Without water and light, this is great design, big plant fail.

    Graceful design but for the longevity of the green part, I can only think of filling it with succulents that become dormant with less sun and exist on minimal water to prevent the soil become waterlogged. Whether they’ll stay pretty is different consideration altogether.

    I think the drainage is in the bottom with small holes.
