Coming soon to a wall or wooden fence near you!
A couple of months ago I described how much I enjoy succulents and their clean, yet lush presentation to a space. Well, a new inspiration is in the works. I recently came across Vertical Gardens, a new trend and very possible for our climate in Utah. There is a reinvention, if you will to hanging baskets. This is my new project for the upcoming summer months and I can’t wait to try these out!
The sky’s the limit with these on which types of plants you can use . . . including many types of succulents from hens and chicks to bromiliads to cascading seedum, fish hook plants, geranium, paddle plants, fern, and much more. The “Wally” container, from woollypocket.com, is made of recycled plastic bottles, the pockets are filled with potting soil, then planted and hung. The greenery stays hydrated and water does not leak because pockets are lined with moisture barriers. They can also be used indoors.
So, prepare yourself for a new fun project to prepare for the summer and create an outdoor room for dining and viewing. Get your design planned, your location picked and your plants ordered – you’re going to love these! Happy Designing!
