Not a New Idea. Check out faux Vertical Gardens

 

 

Vertical gardens are claimed by some to be a new planting trend. I suppose it all depends on your exposure to garden design.  But Garden Beet is beginning to think that… maybe ….the vertical garden genre is a fairly well understood design concept.

Today I saw faux living walls in a discount supermarket.

Yes the plants above are made from plastic and were arranged to create a small vertical garden.  Surely a plastic replica of a design concept infers that the idea is well understood?

Or maybe the purchasing manager for the supermarket is really into vertical plantings.
