We love seeing this vertical garden when driving around 16th and Mission SF, and finally got to check it out up close while on foot.
The Candystore Collective installed this pocket garden about a year ago and it is getting lush.
They used Woolly Pockets to plant. I remember first seeing these vertical garden solutions over at Flora Grubb. Michelle over at Garden Porn has a great pic of those pockets over at Flora.
Scanning the plants, looks like there were a number of Crassula, Aloe, and Senecio used…along with some Bromeliads, decorative grasses and a potted Phormium in the center. If you are wondering about watering…I noticed they had it set up with drip irrigation for this north facing wall.
Go take a virtual walk and check it out via Google Street View.
