(via Amazon.com: BrightGreen BG8 Living Wall Planter with Mounting Strip: Patio, Lawn & Garden)
i’m about to break down and buy this bad boy. when i first saw the pallet garden on life on the balcony i thought that it was a really cute idea. i found a pallet, tried to make one myself [check out the blog post with a picture of my little project].
it was a disaster from the very start, the back ripped open and 150 pounds of dirt spilled out all over the ground. my pallet sucks, it has the smallest holes for planting ever so i just stuck a bunch of seeds in there. hardly anything is growing because in addition to the dirt sliding down, the rain doesn’t hit anything other than the boards. and then my mom discovered yesterday that it was also rotting against the side of my house despite the plastic liner.
so much for my little garden diy projects, i need a sure shot that’s not going to destroy my house and i think that a living wall planter is probably my best bet and the only way i can salvage what few plants are in the pallet garden. it’s less than $25 which is definitely worth the price of saving my wall and plants plus you can purchase multiple ones to cover the whole wall with plants. ugh, why can’t i just live on a farm and have sufficient ground garden space.
