We begin by measuring the area where the wall is to be installed and drilling the mounting holes.

We use sturdy toggle bolts to secure the framing to the wall, in this case common drywall.

The backing grids are now installed, spaced evenly and leveled properly, in order to properly display and support the plant trays.

We begin installing the plant trays, spacing them on the grid depending on the size of the wall

The grid design allows the plant trays to be adjusted depending on the size of the plants that are being installed, because not all plants going in the wall are always the same size.

Now that the framing and trays are in place and secure, we can add the side panels.

The trays themselves act as a water reservoir for the plants–there is no internal plumbing needed. The system is entirely self contained.

Now it’s time to add the plants. One 5 foot by 4 foot living wall this size takes forty eight 6″ diameter plants to fill!
