I love this plant wall because of the randomness and varying bright colors that it has. One of the most beautiful things about nature is that there seldom is any uniformity.
And, this is one example of how that makes this design stunning to look at.
That said, as beautiful this wall looks, it is not easy to create since you need to be able to figure out how to put the different plants together. Then allow them to grow to reach the point that they’re bushy enough to produce this look.

This is an amazing idea because plants can make a natural barrier that’s likewise beautiful to look at.
Just make sure to pick the right kind of plants so they grow to cover and block things out.
Shelves are another way of filling up an entire wall with plants.

Often, using shelves also means using smaller pots or planters since the length of the shelves are not going to be long enough to hold a 10 or 18 inch pot.
