Beverly Hills Vertical Garden Installation

In Beverly Hills, California, Plants On Walls installed a custom Living Wall for a private residence. Measuring 16′ x 11′, a total of 528 plants create a stunning feature in the loggia between the living room and outdoor pool, and instantly became one of the signature designs in the remodel.

Sycamore Elementary’s Living Wall Project

Hi PlantsOnWalls;

I am following up on my promise to give a shout out to PlantsOnWalls on my blog for your help with starting our school garden at Sycamore Elementary in Danville. Check it out.  www.vitalandwell.com/blog  It was a very successful 7 week program  that will repeat in the spring.  The kids had a great time learning and the parents, teachers and principals love the beautiful living art of plants on the wall outside the multi-purpose room.

Please feel free to link our blog to yours or make mention of it on your website on how our Elementary School is using your products.  I am happy to be a reference to any callers you get on how we implemented the living wall at our school.

Best wishes,

Angela Stanford



Planting the Living Wall


What a fun time the 5th grade gardeners and I had this week planting this vertical garden of live color outside the Multipurpose Room on the Sycamore Valley Elementary school campus.

The smiles on the kids faces were priceless as they wrapped up their pansies and climbing jenny into these black felt squares that we laughingly called “black diapers.”

The felt holds the roots securely together and holds in moisture when the plant is tucked into it’s pouch on the vertical wall.


Tucking plants in pouches on the wall

The kids tucked their plants into the 48 felt pouches on the wall and learned how to water them with hose using the “shower” setting on the nozzle.  Each pouch needs a drink to the count of of 3.  All members of  the club will take turns watering the living wall as well as the Earthboxes according to a schedule set up by  Mrs. Lawrence, our 4-5th grade science teacher and my partner on this wonderful project.

As we hung the living wall units, we realized we can also water the Earthboxes with the water that drips out of the bottom row of pouches.  This is an excellent lesson of water conservation which Mrs. Lawrence and I will discuss next week!

Along with planting our vertical garden, the kids also fed the worms in the Worm Cafe with their apple cores and banana peels from lunch and checked on their radishes and spinach growing in the Earthboxes.

The green radish tops are in full view, but the spinach is not quite as far along.  Just a few sprigs of green have poked their heads through the soil so far.

A big shout out to PlantsOnWalls (www.plantsonwalls.com) in San Francisco for their generous support with our Living Wall project.

DES Architecture/Engineering main lobby now hosts a living wall that is bringing cheer to their offices. The system is on display for clients interested in hosting their own living walls for their upcoming projects. The Floraframe Recirc-24 unit demonstrates the “plug & play” ease of integrating plants into their designs.

PlantsOnWalls Showroom Gets New Living Walls

The South-East facade received new custom sized living wall kits to complete the wrap-around frieze that is to be filled with a planting design. The new kits were done in matte grey galvanized frames with recycled grey Florfelt panels. The kits were custom sized to fit perfectly between the columns. In the next weeks the plumbing will be connected and the living walls will be filled with plants.

Fern Spa – Los Altos Hills

We checked up on the install for our client in Los Altos Hills today. Installed only weeks earlier, the ferns were shooting out some fresh new growth. There was a quiet hush in the space beneath the floating ferns bursting with life.

Bath Crashers features PlantsOnWalls video clip

Bath Crashers uses a PlantsOnWalls Florafelt Vertical Garden Planter to add a living wall to a bathroom makeover. First they build a wood frame, plant up the wall, then insert it into a recessed area in the walk-in shower.

Bath Crashers used PlantsOnWalls FLORAFELT vertical garden planters for the “Terrible Terrarium” episode 309. Here is the final result that sets plants as a central focal point or their walk-in shower room.
