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

PlantsOnWalls created a stunning custom living wall installation for a private home on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. The clients wanted an exciting and fresh way to mask the bare retaining walls of their master suite’s sub-level patio.

The open-air indirect light was perfect for a variety of ferns. We fitted 234 root-wrapped plants into the felt pockets, transforming a utilitarian patio into a vibrant space bursting with lush greenery. The client was delighted and remarked on how it recalled childhood forest memories.
