This tiny alleyway didn't have much room for a garden. Designer Seth Boor made use of the space off of the bedroom by designing a custom succulent garden wall hanging. The garden wall adds an unexpected touch over a bed of asparagus fern.
Hanging gardens come in all sizes. For maximum impact, this massive wall at Avalon, a mixed-use development in metro Atlanta, features a wide variety of plantings. People living in the apartments above shops can view this oversized vertical garden.
Here's the outdoor area of a funky Mexican restaurant called Broken Spanish Taqueria. A 500-square-foot interior patio with crowd-friendly tables sits under a kitschy, faux fern-laden pergola and custom painted, lush garden walls. The designer wanted the place to seem like guests were entering someone’s garden or Grandma’s backyard, where families gather and a festive sense of the outdoors is felt indoors.
A tall, gorgeous copper wall adds a shining contrast to the matte concrete retaining wall and striped patio floor of this zen outdoor sitting room. Asian chairs are topped with white cushions and a matching coffee table features a frosted glass center. A succulent garden adds natural color and life to the space.
A striped floor leads to the highlight of this patio design featuring a 3D designed copper wall. Birch trees weave through the protruding panels of the wall integrating the design with the garden. A row of lush succulents lines the wall with landscape lighting shining up and reflecting off the metal finish.
Simple succulents are grouped together in hanging glass orbs from Accent Decor. A wide opening allows you to create a mini-garden inside each one, while hooks at the top encourage multiple strand extensions.
For an indoor hanging garden, Gabriela Eisenhart and Holly Conlan with WAKE + LOOM Design used succulents because they don't require a lot of water and are long-lasting. An extra touch is a mirror that reflects the sculptural plants in the living room. The hanging wood planters are from Anthropologie.
Garden walls of horizontal wood slats provide a screen and create a focal point in this modern, zen-like garden space. Succulent plantings rest amid smooth stones, and a water feature offers soothing sounds.
Large stones serve as restful art in this modern, zen backyard. A classic rock garden features rows of succulents, while subtle lighting accents the wood garden wall and water feature. A shaded seating area rests nearby.
For a dorm room with a large number of windows, create privacy and preserve wall space by hanging a favorite print in the window using removable adhesive strips. Small potted succulents, hung or sitting in the window sill, bring life and additional color to the room.
