Living Walls for Summer
Vertical gardening has long been a specialty for terrain Landscape’s Fine Gardening team. The team is responsible for the upkeep of the beloved living wall outside Styer’s Garden Café, pictured above, which was planted during our annual Dig into Spring Festival this April. Now lush and thriving, this leafy wall is an Instagram favorite among café goers looking to capture the quintessential terrain moment.
In preparation for the hot summer days ahead, the team also re-planted the living wall at our home office. They chose an assortment of low-maintenance, drought-tolerant botanicals, planted in 36 individual hayrack planters that are lined with faux moss fabric. “We went for a look that was a reflection of the colors used in the living wall at the café," says landscape designer Nathan T. "Large, leafy greens such as Datura and Brugmansia act as bold statements, and textured spillers like Dichondra and Helichrysum 'Limelight' add dramatic shape. Pops of purple are provided by airy verbena and pink-striped Setcreasea, while the giant, fuzzy silver Stachys adds another layer of unique color. A spreading perennial, this plant will grow furry flower stalks as the season progresses.”
