This colourful flower feature is simply woven in with an old pallet.

But by adding flowers and a fairy house, it has been transformed into a beautiful garden feature.

A simple way you can add more colour at height, without the need of large bushes and shrubs.

It’s a bit like a hanging basket on the wall.

Simply divine!

The simplicity of colours and the limit of types of plants makes this an elegant garden.

By using plants which grow up as well as plants which grow down, a playful ‘green curtain’ is created.

Simple and well executed.

Wooden Wall Vertical Garden

The wooden wall fence is an unusual feature in itself and you would need a large garden to pull it off, especially to accomodate the all important day bed.

Sun direction also plays a large part here.

It’s important to break up the large wall, and the wooden flower boxes blend in so well – they become part of the wall.

By using just greens, the wall has an elegant and calm feel to it.

This vertical garden has just a handful of different plants in it and looks like a jungle on the wall.

So much nicer than a plain wall and works magnificently well in this multi level condo.

Balcony Vertical Wall

It’s not always easy to add plants to a small balcony.

However, by going up, much more is possible.

And as many high rise buildings are in built up areas, some extra green is often appreciated.

An easy watering system could take away the concern if you’re frequently away.

This is a simple and inexpensive way of adding greenery if you have limited space.

And if you like colour? Just add flowers!

Vertical Herb Garden

This is a great space saving way to grow herbs for your culinairy delights.

As an extra why add one of these very personalised Herb Crates adorning with the message of your choice.

Impress those dinner guests with the aroma and vibrancy of your useful kitchen herb selection.

Vertical Wall with Shelves

Adding shelves to your garden or patio wall is a great idea if you want to add smaller plants. Less plants are needed compared to a full vertical garden and you can play with colour and style of plants.

This is a cost effective way of adding plants to your exterior wall using heavy duty wall trellis.

By adding the metal frame, plant pots can be hung at intervals and by using the same simple plant pots, and larger plants, the result is a tidy and effective wall garden.

This is a great example of a small neat garden wall.

The size of the plant boxes reduces your plant options a little as there won’t be enough soil to grow larger plants.

There is also a larger upfront cost of the stand and the pots themselves.

But it works well for very small area as the wall has minimal depth, so is perfect if space saving is high on your agenda.

Forget the trip to the supermarket!

Completely Green Garden Wall

This organised mess of a garden wall could breathe life into any indoor area.

In its unique haphazard way it just ‘feels’ alive and would fit in any small office environment – for that much needed oxygen.

A further example of old pallets being recycled and used to create this ‘rustic’ charm.

Thoughtfully positioned plants and the use of spacing create dynamics that just blend together in harmony.

DIY Garden Wall Planter

Gravel Grid Patterned Gravel Driveway

This DIY garden wall planter is well made and has been made to a high standard.

If colourful pots were used with colourful planting the whole visual (and feel) would be transformed.

That’s not the objective here! The conformist rigid structure reflects a somewhat stifled imagination – perhaps?

If there is an extensive wall to cover using these backlit screens create a really unique visual.

Wooden Vertical Planters

The pleasing layout of the regularly spaced baton provides solitude for wandering eyes busy from daily screentime.
