One of the greatest qualities of succulents is that they can grow really well in a variety of settings. Possibly the most tempting place to plant succulents these days is in a vertical display. Planting vertically offers a unique perspective and is a great use of space if you’ve already covered all your windowsills, patio, and table spaces with containers. As with all succulent designs and arrangements, you can incorporate a variety of textures, materials, plant types, and shapes to create a one of a kind succulent wall garden. Check out some of these ideas for creating your own vertical succulent garden!


Wall Gardens aren’t limited to square or rectangular shapes. In fact, more and more vertical gardens are emerging that stray from the ordinary form. Take this cactus shaped wall garden for example, created by the Succulent Gardens.

Square/Rectangular Framed Garden

Wall Boxes

Wall boxes are another really captivating way to display succulents vertically. You can create all sorts of configurations with this planting style and fill a blank wall up nicely. One of the great things about planting in wall mounted boxes, rather than forward facing frames is that you are able to incorporate a wider variety of plants with differing heights. You can also use succulent types that spill over as well, which will create a cascading or waterfall effect.

Reclaimed Wood

In this piece, we used driftwood to frame the garden, which gives it a nice, beachy appeal. Reclaimed or recycled pieces of wood are a great material to incorporate or use to build wall gardens.

    These wall gardens are extraordinary. My question is how do you water them?
