    Is it safe to grow herbs and food plants in cinderblock? what about flyash?

    if you don't have landscape glue you can use zip ties

    this is a good idea but doesn't necessarily constitute urban as most people who dwell in urban areas don't have access to open space or backyards, but some do so for them OK however another concern and major one and a concern of urban agriculture is the leeching of chemicals from cinder blocks which are made of concrete and cinder or coal ash. anyone who understands urban gardening/agriculture knows that's the major or a major concern of the would from which cinder block once stood and other chemical leeching into the soil things. I

    I don't want to take away from the project as it is a start of a very good idea, in the context of gardening and leeching prevention of such should be considered.

    I'd avoid the hardware cloth and go for something non-metallic. Less metal used around soil the better, imho.

    The prices start at € 390.00 for a one sided wall, plus the plants etc. It is restaurants and café terraces we had in mind when we started producing these. 🙂

    When the water basin in the base is full, it has quite some weight to it and does stabilize the wall pretty well. But anyhow, if you put the wall exposed into full on wind on a stormy day, it will always struggle to stay up. It is not designed to be a "wind shelter", but a green divider. You could fix it to the ground though…

    It has a water basin with pump in the base, which feeds trickle irrigation within the felt layer that makes up the plant pockets.

    @adeeboy Absolutely, it's just important to choose suitable ones. Best are low growing flowering perennials like Heuchera, Aruncus, Tiarella, Astilbe, Astrantia etc. etc.. Tall ones like Kniphofia, Rudbeckia, Agapanthus etc. will likely have their long stalks falling over and snapping in wind or heavy rain (and look out of place on the wall anyway).

  • adeeboy 1 year ago

    could you plant flowering perenials in the walls or just foliage plants?

  • maximizedesignmax 1 year ago

    @adeeboy It's a good work out though; just change your garden around ten times a day and you save the money for the fitness club! ;-D

  • maximizedesignmax 1 year ago

    @enticed2zeitgeist On those walls we planted mostly edible plants; herbs, strawberries etc.. And in between a few evergreen ground covers like Ajuga and Waldsteinia so that the wall woulnd't be bare looking in Winter.

  • maximizedesignmax 1 year ago

    @bene2727 give us a few months, we're working on that… 🙂

  • adeeboy 1 year ago

    Very nice you could end up with a hernia though lol

  • enticed2zeitgeist 1 year ago

    Is that food you are growing on them walls? Brilliant idea man. I like how could position them to face the sun all day long.

    @luizricardosb: Thank you. The plant pockets are made from felt made from recycled plastic bottles and milk cartons. The actual structure and the planters are 100% recycled polypropylene plastics.

  • Luiz Ricardo Silva Belém 1 year ago

    awesome concept! what kind of structure do you use to hold the plants?
