Incorporating a vertical garden into your landscape is a natural fit. By placing one or more planting cells onto your structure, you will instantly soften any hard architectural lines with the natural flow of plant life. Add color or interest to any large surface simply by adding plants. Creating a vertical garden is easier than you think.
The wall planter consists of a single polymer unit. It has 45 planting cells and measures 20 inches wide x 20 inches long and 2.5 inches deep. The planter comes with a bracket that mounts to the wall and then the planter sits on the bracket.
Add about 1/2 inch of soil to the bottom of each cell; it takes 23 4-packs of sedum / ground cover to fill each panel. Arrange in any style you like. Many different types of plants can be used.
To mount the planter, attach the unit in an upright position to any sound vertical surface using the mounting bracket included with your kit. There are two additional screw holes to secure the planter directly to the wall.
The unit is watered from the top. Pour water into the top watering chamber; gravity aids in the flow as it travels in a side to side journey to the bottom of the module. The roots of every plant in the module are watered.
When using one or two modules, they can be watered manually with a watering can or hose from the top. For a larger application of many modules, a drip irrigation system is recommended.
With the addition of a timer attached to the drip irrigator, the watering process can be started and stopped automatically.
The planting modules can be hung separately or in groups to form one huge seamless vertical landscape.
