Vertical Gardening Walls - Use it in Devon?

Devon Wall - an alternative screen - Scotscape System

Looking out of a client's widow - with a view to quoting on some new privacy screening, I decided to broach the subject of using a new vertical wall system instead of the more tradition screening provided by planting and hard landscaping.

So 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(pictured). Another example of their system in use is http://www.rubenshotel.com/about-us/the-living-wall.

Five Places To Use a Vertical Plant Wall  

1.  Perhaps a vertical wall stuffed full of frothy shade loving plants with a splashes of colour to light up and disguise difficult areas along a house’s boundaries, ie the ubiquitous dark front entrance?

2.  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?

3.  A beautiful coastal balcony garden – perhaps with salt tolerant plantings of sedums and Sempervivums?

4.  To make areas to enjoy gardening for those with access problems – the system can be placed to stop bending or suit chair access.

5.  To create a living veg 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; worth your consideration?
