What Houzz contributors are saying:
Grow upwardsA vertical ‘green wall’ has become very popular in urban gardens. Although it’s not technically container gardening, the plants are held in small pockets, where they are watered and fed so that they grow and cover the wall.You can grow perennial and evergreen plants and ferns over a wall as well as herbs, fruit and vegetables. Green walls could be seen as the urban equivalent of a hedge, providing a habitat for insects and reducing pollution.If you’re planning on having a green wall, check which plants are suitable for the position of your wall. If you want to care for it yourself – lots of companies that supply green walls also offer maintenance – you may need to replace some plants from time to time, so if the planting is very high, make sure you have a steady ladder!
