Conservatory of Flowers Vertical Garden

A dazzling array of exotic tropicals cover a wall at the entrance to San Francisco’s Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park.

The vertical garden was donated by Chris Bribach of Plants On Walls. Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters were hung from Unistrut members that were clamped to the building. Volunteers at the conservatory added exotic species of plants and also care for the vertical garden.

After 6 months, nearly 2/3rds of the pockets have been filled, and the plants have shown significant growth . The planters are hung from steel struts by s-hooks and are watered and fed by a digital hose timer and pressure feeder.

Vertical Oasis Downtown San Francisco

After 6 months, the vertical garden at 100 Pine Street in Downtown San Francisco has developed a rich depth of color and texture. Designed by Chris Bribach of Plants On Walls for CBRE office towers.

The blue star ferns have emerged, while the bird nest, mother, and leather ferns push to the front of the ficus decora, giving 3-dimensional structure to the composition.

Aquaponic Vertical Vegetable Garden

Chris Bribach of Plants On Walls created an aquaponic vertical vegetable garden concept for a showroom in San Francisco. Water is recirculated through the panels from the tank below. Goldfish create the fertilizer needed by the vegetable garden. The balanced system produces oxygen as well as organic herbs and vegetables.

The tower is made from 9 of the Florafelt 12-pocket Vertical Garden Planters that are threaded together with picture wire to form a triangle. The triangular panel units are then attached to 10 foot 3/4″ galvanized pipe and placed over a 36″ Stock Tank.

A fountain pump recirculates the water through the felt panels. The water wicks into the roots of the plants. Drip trays at the base of the panels direct water back into the storage tank. Note the storage tank should be lined with a fish safe non-reactive plastic pond liner or use a similar p.e.t. plastic storage tank at the base.
