Accessories: Vertical Garden from Flora Grubb

Accessories: Vertical Garden from Flora Grubb

We first admired Flora Grubb’s vertical garden installations on last spring’s American Institute of Architects tour (see Architect Visit: Boor Bridges in San Francisco). Then we spotted another installation at the Bardessono in Napa (see Shopper’s Diary: The Shop at Bardessono). So we were interested to learn that Grubb is now offering a DIY system for creating your own vertical garden; as she says, “Literally hundreds of people who’ve seen our vertical gardens have asked how to get the same purpose-built panels that we use so they can build one for themselves. Not wanting to keep a good thing all to ourselves (for too long, anyway), we’re offering a DIY solution.” The 20-by-20-inch tray contains 45 slanted planting cells and can be mounted on the wall. Each Vertical Garden DIY Panel is $99.95.

Landscape designer Flora Grubb has made a name for herself by using non-flowering succulents and hard-to-kill plants; she’s also a proponent of using alternative and recycled materials. Take a closer look at her work in Remodelista’s post: Shopper’s Diary: Flora Grubb Gardens in San Francisco.
