Hundreds of plants create a vibrant, thrilling welcome to a custom home designed by Fani Hansen Architects. Located in San Rafael, California, this amazing installation has been thriving for a full year with very little maintenance. Created from Florafelt Pockets and installed by Chris Bribach of Plants on Walls, the plants were selected for the indoor lighting and have become a harmonious garden.
Explore how you can include architectural details that bring so many plants into your life. Florafelt Pockets are easy to integrate into your designs. Simply plan for a water source that irrigates from the top and a drain tray for excess water. Or you can use a tank, pump, and timer to create a recirculating system.
A living wall of exotic tropicals turns a standard basement light well into a luxurious subterranean garden that enriches a home gym and dance studio.
The owners of this Palo Alto home asked Planted Places to bring a touch of nature into an active space designed to encourage healthy living. In addition to freshening the air, the living wall is a singular expression of tropical beauty, vibrant with colors and textures. The owners were also thrilled to discover how local wildlife shared their vision of a natural shelter.
Architectural-grade Florafelt Pro System
Green wall expert and designer Christine Dunckley chose the Florafelt Pro System to transform the light well into a flourishing exotic garden. After waterproofing the walls, her team installed the Florafelt Pro System and planted the grid according to her design. Because the grids easily accommodate fully grown plants, it took a single day for the team two wrap and plant an instant tropical oasis. The Florafelt Pro System provides the ultimate solution for vertical landscape artistry, with room enough for a huge variety of leafy and flowering plants. The wall evolves as it grows, weaving a rich tapestry of colors, shapes, and textures.
The perfect place to nest
After enjoying their tropical living wall for a few months, the owners noticed two birds carefully tending one spot in particular. They made the exciting discovery they’d provided a safe haven for a local bird family! Sheltering in the foliage, this gorgeous nest of eggs is the purest illustration of a soothing, private oasis
