Going Big with Florafelt at Planterra Canada

Florafelt Pocket Panel living wall by Planterra Canada.

Planterra, a leading interior plantscaper in Canada, uses the simplicity of the Florafelt Pocket Panel living wall system to deliver impressive living walls to their clients.

Using them indoors for corporate clients they have included branding and signage. Supplemental lighting is a crucial part of a living wall’s health but also highlights its natural beauty as a focal point.

To ease installation they deliver the pre-planted panels to the site prior to installation. Construction workers lift the pre-planted panels into place and hang to the structure using the hanging tabs and S-hooks.

The lush living walls make interior environments much more pleasant for work and relaxation.

A striking living wall adds a distinctive, natural feel to the Sam Claire office furniture showroom in Concord, California. In another amazing design from Planted Design, the Florafelt Pro System towers 18 feet and features low light interior plants.

A custom circulating system of tanks and pumps irrigates wall automatically, making this dramatic wall a no-fuss addition. The frame blends the wall and the space and integrates the existing design. Low-cost and easily-installed LED lights hang from the ceiling and provide full spectrum lighting.

Stainless steel grids provide the structure, and the walls are protected by the waterproofing elements provided in the Pro System Kit. A simple system of tanks and pumps recirculate the water according pre-set timers.

The plant wall is a showpiece of incorporating nature into office environments, which is proven to increase productivity.

Yoobi Los Angeles Office Living Wall

Florafelt Pockets living wall by Florals by Mitzi for Yoobi Los Angeles.

Yoobi needed a fresh new look and feel for the living wall in their Los Angeles headquarters. LA designer of Florals by Mitzi created an inventive angled pattern of tropical plants including anthurium, variegated pothos, schefflera, and bromeliads. A new jungle is ready to grow!

The pockets of the Florafelt System made the update easy, since rearranging the wall is as simple as slipping in new plants. Like the most far-sighted gardening plans, the new wall will evolve in unique and unexpected ways.

As this project demonstrates, the Florafelt Pocket System makes inventive ideas come to life with ease, even years after installation. Made from recycled, non-toxic plastic water bottles, the pockets are durable, simple to clean, and provide ultimate creativity for new ideas.

The beautiful reclaimed wood frame, installed with the living wall in 2011 by designer Tucker Warner is still providing a dramatic stage. A tank and pump provide a simple but effective irrigation system.

Drought Tolerant Living Wall in Sausalito

Florafelt Pro System living wall by Eileen Kelly of Dig Your Garden Landscape Design.

After a month the plants have begun to grow in nicely. As expected the grasses and Lamium are the fastest to grow and first to begin filling in.

Eileen Kelly of Dig Your Garden Landscape Design created a vertical sweep of colors and shapes for her Sausalito client. The first phase of a complete redesign of the front yard, the living wall is a bold statement about the beauty of conservation.

Water conservation is essential in many places but drought tolerant plants come in a huge variety of colors and textures. Artful and exciting designs take full advantage of native species that are well-adapted to microclimates.

A planting grid is used to plan the living wall layout. Flowing patterns of colorful varieties make this a living work of art. Drought tolerant plants used for this design:

  • Aeonium ‘Pinwheel’
  • Acorus gramineus ‘Licorice’
  • Cares Testacea ‘Prairie Fire’
  • Lamium ‘White Nancy’
  • Oxalis ‘Burgundy Form’
  • Senecio mandraliscae

As the plants grow in they will completely cover the felt and grid. Irrigation timing will be adjusted to minimize water use for this brilliantly orchestrated design.

Designer Eileen Kelley of Dig Your Garden Landscape Design creates a colorful living wall for her Sausalito client working with Plants On Walls using the Florafelt Pro System.

Sun-loving Succulents and Grasses Living Wall

Florafelt Pocket Panels living wall installation by Planted Places.

Northern California based garden design team Planted Places installs a beautiful poolside living wall for a client’s private home in Marin, California. 

For a distinctive touch, they mounted Florafelt Pocket Panels on 2×4 redwood lumber attached to the fence. In addition to making a dramatic statement by “floating” the living wall, it ensures the fence remains dry.

Automatic irrigation keeps the plants moist. Two drip emitters are placed at the top of every Florafelt Pocket, positioned to each edge. The placement irrigates the Florafelt Pockets, not the plants. Roots seek the moisture collected in the pockets and grow into the felted system. This unbound approach allows roots to grow into and through the felt, letting the plants reach full maturity, far beyond the efficient size of each pocket.

Planted Places worked with their client to create a beautiful mix of cool and fresh designs.

Starting with smaller plants is not only more economical, it allows the wall to take a natural, individual character. The Florafelt Pockets are elegant enough to highlight the new plantings before they cover the surface with a dramatic cliffside of life.

Strawberry Walls

Chris Bribach, Plants On Walls, Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters
Chris Bribach of Plants On Walls created a colorful vertical garden harvest. Strawberries were harvested from a vertical garden using Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters in Brentwood, California. The steaming hot summers of California’s Central Valley are famous for their plentiful produce harvests. Getting the plants off the ground helps curb inset attack and makes for easy pickings. It’s fun to just walk up and get a snack.
