If a home is a man’s castle, his garden is his paradise! However, to create the perfect paradise, extensive planning goes into any yard. There are many ways to achieve the aesthetic you would like, and adding a planter wall can add to your design and yard functionality. Read on for tips about how to utilize planter walls in your landscaping!
How to Utilize Planter Walls in Your Landscaping
A key element of creating your paradise is privacy. It is important to keep privacy in mind in the Hollywood area when designing your landscaping. Planter walls can be a great privacy feature. They can serve as a solid wall or one with space in between slats or plants for a breeze to go through. They can muffle noise and are far prettier than a standard privacy fence!
Planter walls aren’t just a pretty facade – they can be functional too! A planter wall doesn’t have to be limited to flowers and greenery. It can be a valuable place to grow fruit, vegetables, and herbs just feet from your kitchen! If you are building or designing your wall, it is easy to arrange the proper size boxes with enough space for these edible plants to grow.
The sky (or the HOA guideline) is the limit of your planter wall height, making it potentially a great source of sun protection. Try mapping out a planter wall near the patio area, using it as an accent in an outdoor kitchen, or even one near the end of the pool! It will be a great source of shade at different times of the day and feel more natural and sturdy than an umbrella.
A living wall can be a focal point of your garden. It can take the average yard and turn it into a unique place and make you look like a pro gardener in the meantime. Placing it strategically in your yard can hide ugly equipment such as air conditioning units or pool equipment, or it can highlight features such as an outdoor fireplace.
