With a view to new privacy screening, we decided to approach the subject of using a new vertical wall system instead of the more traditional screening provided by planting and hard landscaping.
What does a Vertical Wall Planting System look like?
There are lots of vertical gardening systems out there and a great one is provided by Scotscape.
Five Places To Use a Vertical Plant Wall
- A vertical wall stuffed full of frothy shade loving plants with splashes of colour to light up and disguise difficult areas along a house’s boundaries.
- A living wall system could look fabulous in a boutique hotel as a centre piece in the foyer or perhaps a backdrop to a dining area.
- A beautiful coastal balcony garden with salt tolerant plantings of sedums and Sempervivums.
- To make areas to enjoy gardening for those with access problems. The system can be placed to stop bending or suit chair access.
- To create a living wall perhaps for a pre-school or school space, or possible to plant to focus on creating a wildlife or bee friendly garden with a froth of seasonal colour and interest.
Whatever the use/placement of the wall it should earn its keep 12 months of the year and its planting should be sequential and seasonal to create a real interest, it can even include spring bulbs.
Imagine, sipping a glass of wine looking at a beautiful piece of planting art and enjoying the butterflies your new wall attracts.
