This L-shaped vertical garden, whose walls extend out 74 feet on one side and 31 feet on the other, is packed with approximately 5,000 plants. Priority was given to plants that could withstand the heat and humidity of New Orleans, where the garden is located, and that could be changed out easily with the seasons. Plants include Mondo grass, Mexican heather, Silverdust Dusty Miller Maritima, Compact Sprenger Asparagus Fern, Ruellia Dwarf White and a stream of annuals for color.
The rooftop garden on this round clubhouse, surrounded by high-rise apartments in Bangalore, India, needed to provide a spectacular view for both clubhouse guests inside and apartment residents outside. Joly John of Shibanee & Kamal Architects created a hanging garden that provides a living focal point.
A small space is a great place for a vertical garden, and this one cost less than $10. Design blogger Alaya Sheardon used a crib frame that was headed for the dumpster. She found pails for $1 each and poked holes into the bottom to help drain water. She hung the cans from shower curtain hooks (the pack were on sale for $5). The frame was spray painted white.
Among the 5000 plants filling these living walls, part of the New Orleans Botanical Garden, are: Mondo grass, Mexican heather, Silverdust Dusty Miller Maritima, Compact Sprenger Asparagus Fern, Ruellia Dwarf White and a variety of annuals for pops of color.
Bright green pots complement natural green herbs in a hanging garden, providing a colorful punch to this back deck. Eileen Beaver, who blogs at A Creative Day, created this hanging herb planter for the Home Depot Patio Style Challenge.
