Woolly Pockets is a manufacturer of modular, breathable vertical garden planters that can create lush green walls and magnificent vertical gardens on any indoor or outdoor wall, fence or railing. Green Up can install multiple planters in any configuration to design living walls of any shape or size. Installations can be soil or they can be soil-less using a variety of other growing media.
Plants on Walls
Plants on Walls is a maker of vertical planters using the microfibers from recycled plastic PET, a nylon non-toxic fiber that is indestructible and tough. This material provides a safe growing medium that is pH neutral and non-reactive, so you can garden organically right on your wall – and it’s safe for vegetables and herbs! Plants are wrapped in a custom root-wrapping system which allows the roots to breathe, absorb water and nutrients, and grow right into the felt.
Green Living Technologies
GLT manufactures growing systems made of stainless steel or aluminum. Their standard products are box-like structures that are segmented into panels that are either 4 or 6 inch depths. With a GLT system you can have a living wall covering one square foot or larger – currently the largest wall using GLT is 17,000 square feet. GLT makes both a wall hanging system and a free-standing mobile system.
Architectural Supplements builds a complete, standalone living wall system that can be wall hung or mounted on a mobile chassis. Their design keeps each plant in its own pot, allowing plants to be changed out easily. Pots sit in trays mounted on an angle so each plant gets the light it needs. Water and nutrients can be maintained in each tray with a wicking system that allows each plant to absorb the water it needs.
In our experience, a living wall can be successfully created using one of the many systems available in the market place. We work with each customer to understand their vision and desired outcome. For example, one restaurant owner preferred a soil-less system in their dining area. A home owner wanted a living wall above her fireplace that was a thin as possible. A furniture outlet wanted a free standing system with plants on both sides to separate their conference area from the reception area. A gardener wanted a vertical wall on a fence to maximize his growing space. Each of these situations required a unique approach.
