Summer may be coming to an end in many parts of the world but that doesn’t mean you can’t extend the season a bit by transforming one of your walls into an indoor oasis. Nowadays, it’s easier than ever to create your own vertical garden with modular planting systems and hanging planters that require minimal assembly. Whether you’re hoping to add a splash of color to your living room with a wall of blooms or harvest your own fresh herbs off of a garden right in your kitchen, read on for some of our favorite living wall units.
Living walls are not only beautiful but great for the air quality of your home, thanks to the plants that adorn them. According to Nasa, plants filter toxins and improve air quality. Besides turning carbon dioxide into oxygen, live plants also absorb harmful VOCs, formaldehyde, and benzene, which are off-gassed by fabrics, home fragrance products, rugs, cigarettes and plastic.
When creating a wall or vertical garden, think about how much sun and water the plant will need. Lower maintenance plants such as succulents, ferns and low ground covers are good candidates.

These days there are vertical gardens and vertical garden tutorials to suit every space, style, level of skill, the greenness of thumb, and plant budget.
