When it comes to mounting or hanging a vertical garden in your home, the options are endless. You can build your own frame to suit the space or buy a pre-made frame made out of wood, recycled synthetic material (water bottles), steel with felt pockets or some other reliable support. Some people may utilize angled plant trays which hang like shelving and hold individual plants which can slid in and out easily for manual maintenance.

Most of the living walls you see in lobby areas at resorts like the Westin Hilton Head or Westin La Paloma have a built-in watering system. “The challenge with the living wall in the container,” says Glenn Sampert, general manager of Westin La Paloma, “is everything gets the same amount of water. We really have to insure that we are selecting plants that require the same basics of sun and water to have everything thrive.” For homeowners who prefer low maintenance, they should consider one of the self-watering models available from companies like Sage Vertical Garden Systems and Woolly Pocket. Eichmann notes, “There’s a simple little garden that’s 12 inches by 12 inches. It has little holes in it where you insert your plants and hang it on the wall. This mini-system as well as other larger full-fledged systems incorporate hydroponic rockwool [a high grade horticultural mineral made from Basalt stone] as their growth media.”

Another option is offered by Suite Plants, which, according to Eichmann, is “a wall system that actually looks like a living piece of art. What you’re buying is a frame and inside that frame are water tanks that hold your watering.” You only need to fill the water tanks about once a month with this model and there are no plumbing or electrical considerations because it is battery operated. There is no danger of overwatering either because a beeping sound will occur to let you know when the tanks have reached their full capacity. “With this living wall system,” Eichmann adds, “capillary mat fabric pulls just the right amount of water from the tanks to the plant roots via wicking action.”
