These green wall panels are great for any type of plants. They are super efficient and easy to use. Irrigation is already installed with drippers woven through to each planter making watering your plants a breeze. All you have to do is connect the hose to the side of one of the panels and the entire wall garden gets watered at once. It really is awesome. The panels also keep the planters set out away from the wall, which helps prevent any water damage to your wall long term.
We installed the four panel kit, which you can configure into different shapes to fit your wall space. You can add on as many panels as you’d like creating as large of a green wall as you need. The pieces easily connect together and then hang from a really simple bracket system.
We chose to use mostly succulents for this project, because we wanted a really bright and colorful garden. This wall does receive full sun for the last half of the day so our plants will receive a great amount of light. We used a few different Sedums, Echeverias, Kalanchoes, Jade, Crassula, and a few Bromeliads for an added lush, tropical vibe.
We planted each planter individually, and then attached it to the wall. What’s great is that you can move the planters around as your plants grow and fill in. So overtime you can adjust for spacing and cover more of the panels and black surface area.
We really did have so much fun doing this project. The green wall was so easy to put together and watering was a piece of cake. The drippers work so that the soil has time to absorb the water, giving your plants a deep, thorough soak.
Already our garden is so colorful and pretty lush, but overtime it is going to fill in and look amazing. We plan to water our garden about once a week since it receives full sun. And since it is growing season for most succulents, we are going to fertilize about once every two weeks. We like to use a succulent & cacti fertilizer to really get our plants growing and filling in quickly.
In no time at all these plants will have all the visible black space covered and it will look like one large, full garden. In the mean time though, the black background does make the plants really pop, so we don’t mind that at all either.
