Imagine wall art that was eco-friendly, added Mother Nature to your living room and was a constantly changing spectacle, and you will come close to envisioning something like the creative Living Wall Planters.
At $169, they are relatively good priced, especially since they are coupled with the entertainment and novelty value.
It is a very good idea, but as with most pioneering inventors, the first concept is by no means the best one. The Living Wall Planters gets full-marks for the idea, but the execution lacks the necessary sleek sophistication to make it popular and successful inside the home.
The cedar wood frame is packed with a metallic grid of pockets for the soil and plant roots to sit in, which allows for the plants to sit upright on the wall. Hidden from view is a basic watering and reservoir system that slowly feeds the plants and ensures there are no leakages (on your stylish wall-coverings or furniture).
Once the makers address the 'look what I built in my backyard' appearance and inject a little more aesthetic appeal to their design, they will have created a whole new trend in wall art and household gardening. Until that day comes, it'll be best not to remove any existing works of art from the walls in your home, and instead, maybe look to use the Living Wall Planter to decorate the exterior walls of your living space.
