Rainwater Sourced Koi Pond Irrigates and Nourishes a Custom Crafted Atrium Fern Wall

Harvested rainwater creates a living oasis for a Southern California water conscious home.

The living wall integrates with the water catchment system

“Thanks Plants On Walls for all your help. Love your Florafelt product. Our Florafelt Pockets living wall is filling in nicely. Building this atrium was my retirement project and took a year to complete. All of the plants are irrigated with collected rain water and fed using Koi pond water. The off-grid water system makes this ideal project for Southern California.”
– Jack Barkley

Florafelt Pockets Fern Wall

The fern wall on my back patio gets more and more lush as it matures. It also begins to build a more natural character as the plants find their place. This wall goes largely ignored because it is on automatic watering systems. Ever since I began using a food injector, the plants really began to burst out. This wall has been growing for nearly two years now.
