Photos of our aquaponic greens garden we created in Sonoma, California.
Landscape designer Lindsey Graves of Living Green Design, San Francisco adds a striking mix of bromeliads and succulents to the entryway of a fabulous Pacific Heights home. Floating above a reflecting pool, the living wall turns an interesting architectural feature into a stylized celebration of earth and water, nature's most harmonious elements. The living wall planting grid assembles quickly using the Florafelt Pro System.
Once planted, Lindsey artfully added mosses to create fully filled lush living wall. Details are added to create this stunning living masterpiece.
Living Wall Installation
Lindsey Graves of Living Green Design used the Florafelt Pro System to create this living wall installation. Stainless steel grids were mounted to the wall then the water shield is inserted. For this install a custom recirculation system was added to use water from the pond below. Florafelt Grow Strip is then woven in then Florafelt Root Wrapped plants are added.
Succulents add a dash of excitement to a newly-created landscape design by AD Landscape Design (Los Angeles Area) @adlandscape for a private home in Santa Monica. Using the Florafelt Pro System, the living wall creates an artistic focal point for the luscious garden.
Landscape architect Alec Hawley explores a dynamic collection of succulents for his own backyard living wall using the Florafelt Pro Vertical Garden System.
Alec experimented with a wide variety of succulent species to identify the most successful for the environment.
A year after planting, nearly all have thrived and a sweeping expanse of color and texture creates a dynamic and exciting landscape element.
A wide variety of species are artfully mixed together create delightful experience.
The succulent garden is the focal point of the yard and provides a backdrop to the children's play area. It's an inspiring place to discover and learn.

The entitled 'Birds of Prey' vertical gardens were transferred here after the 2013 Decorators Showcase in Pacific Heights. The Florafelt Pro System infrastructure was reconfigured into a large single living wall.
Blue Star Ferns and Leather ferns fill the lower areas that have more moisture while the Japanese Maples go dormant and lose their leaves for winter.
Leather Ferns mingle near the moist lower areas of the living wall. Woody stems of Conifers from the original installation begin to thicken with age. Grasses finish out their season with an undergrowth of dieback.
San Francisco's foggy Fillmore district is ideal for grottos of lush ferns that enhance a spa and shower hidden within the plant wall. A total of 2000 plants are growing in three massive living walls throughout the home, the tallest of which towers 25 feet. They transform this luxurious urban home into a natural oasis.
Rock and Rose worked with landscape architect Tim O'Shea to design these massive vertical gardens. They used the Florafelt Pro System with direction by Chris Bribach of Plants On Walls, system installation by Mike Long of Longevity Construction, and final planting by Michael Bonicci of Showplant Nurseries.
Tim O'Shea chose a collection of practical yet lush ferns for the cavernous, low-light conditions including Mother, Maidenhair, Bird Nest, and Blue Star ferns. Babytears and Soleirolii provide a variety of textures and colors that grow into a smooth delicate carpet with a subtle wave of contrast from the yellow flowers of Maroon Oxalis.
