Creating a Living wall at Home

Going green is all the rage and what better way to do it than with a living wall? Plants are beautiful and can reduce stress, while also providing oxygen to your home or workspace. If you're not sure where to start, we've got you covered!



Start with Succulents


Succulents are perfect for beginners because they're easy to grow, propagate, and care for. Since these plants need minimal watering and soil upkeep, you can put them on your living wall with little risk of killing them off.


If you're more experienced with indoor gardening, consider adding more challenging flora to your wall—but make sure to keep a good variety of succulents as well.


Adhere Plants to a Wall


Once you've chosen your plants and purchased them, the next step is to decide how to adhere them to the wall. There are several options:


Plant wall brackets are an easy way to secure a plant without having to drill into walls or ceilings. They come in many different shapes, sizes, materials and designs, so you can find one that fits perfectly with your design aesthetic.

Plant wall adhesive is made specifically for mounting live plants onto flat surfaces like walls and windowsills. It's usually applied with a paintbrush or roller brush rather than a roller applicator like caulking, because it requires more control in order for you not to accidentally apply too much adhesive in the wrong place or overdo it by gluing down too many plants at once—you know what we mean!


Plant a Container Wall Garden


To create a container wall garden, you'll need to select a large container that is easy to clean and sturdy. Choose one with drainage holes in the bottom so you can easily water your plants. The top of your container should be at least 8 inches higher than the lip of the pot (so they don't spill over).



Hang Plants from the Ceiling


Another way to hang your plants is with a chain and hook. If you have a ceiling that's high enough, this could be the easiest option for you. Just add a hook in each corner of the wall, and then hang chains from each hook. This will allow you to easily adjust where your plants are hanging by simply moving their chains up or down.


If you don't have a high enough ceiling or if using chains is not an option for whatever reason, there are still other ways to create plant walls that don't require any hanging hardware at all! For example: Fishing line can be used as well as pulleys and hooks. The key here is having a sturdy structure on which to tie off the fishing line (or cloth strips) so they aren't pulled down while also providing enough slack between the lines' attachment points and their weight load points (in this case, where they will attach themselves onto).


Create a Living Wall of Plants in Frames


Use a variety of plants. You can use herbs, flowers and succulents, depending on your preferences. Some good examples include basil, rosemary and lavender for culinary purposes; petunias and zinnia as flowers; and aloe vera as an ornamental plant with medicinal properties. If you want to make it more interesting, consider mixing it up by adding different types of frames together or by combining two or three types of materials (plastic vs wood) together on the same frame. You'll also want to try out different colors by combining all green plants with one yellowish-green plant or orange-colored flowers with blue-green foliage. There's no right way or wrong way when deciding what combination would work best; just keep playing around until you find something that works well together! The possibilities are endless!



Create a living wall in your home or on a vertical garden outside.


Create a living wall in your home or on a vertical garden outside. If you're looking for an easy way to add color and life to a space in your home, plants are the perfect solution. A living wall or vertical garden can be used as a focal point for any room in your home, or as the perfect backdrop for your furniture. Living walls have been trending for years now, so if you haven't considered incorporating one into your space yet there's no better time than now!


If you're interested in creating a living wall or vertical garden, here are some tips:


Start small! There's no need to go overboard when creating a living wall; start with just one plant first and see how it goes from there. If it works out well then consider adding more plants at once later on - but if not then don't worry because there are plenty more options!

Choose containers carefully based on what type of look you want (elegant versus rustic). For example: choose plastic pots over terracotta ones since they look nicer indoors; metal pots would be best outdoors since they won't get too hot during summer months etc.


This is an amazing idea for anyone who wants to add some greenery to their home. It’s also a great way for those who want to grow plants but don’t have much space. You can use any of these methods—and there are many more—to create your own beautiful living wall.
