Outdoor Living: Big Gardens For Small Spaces

Having a large collection of plants is amazing, but it can get a little crowded with our floor space disappearing pretty quickly. This is particularly true for city dwellers, so you may want to think outside of the box if you live in a flat or small urban setting. Space is one of the main issues urban horticulturalists face today so you may need to get creative with balconies and smaller gardens, or better yet, bring nature indoors.

The living wall

By focusing on a desire to nurture carefully grown fauna, it is time to rethink the living wall. Horticus Living presents a living wall that is more flexible, and they’ve added a few lifestyle features and kept the practice of cultivation.

Horticus is a modular living wall system that can grow in keeping with your botanical demands. You choose the size and layout according to your preference and it doesn’t have to be all plants either. Use an empty planter for mementoes or select from pods with different functions.

You can grow your living wall at your own pace. There is no need to get a lot of plants straight away to have the impact. The small kit consists of 1 powder coated steel frame and 3 terracotta planters and can add a touch of jungle to a bathroom, bring fresh herbs to a kitchen and a sense of calm to a living room.

Planters are made from terracotta and can be lifted in and out of the frame. Easy when it comes to repotting or if rearranging if the mood strikes you. Even better, the planters can be watered from above through a grid of watering holes.

Combination of powder coated frame with terracotta brings a natural feel to interiors while offering a fantastic contrast to the greenery.
