The Florafelt System
It's lightweight innovative design lets plants breathe and keeps walls dry.
Hand made in the USA.
Pleated felt is stapled onto a lightweight plastic board.
Watered from the top, water wicks down to water each plant.
Unbound by the pockets, roots grow into the moist felt.
Patented pleated design keeps moisture in the system and the front dry.
The felt breathes to host living microbiology and healthy plants.
Planting with some soil balances pH and stabilizes moisture.
FLORAFELT VERTICAL GARDEN PLANTERS
Create beautiful vertical gardens and living walls with our patented pleated felt pocket system.
The felt is made from recycled plastic water bottles, a non-toxic fiber that is indestructible and tough. Over time roots grow into the moist felt. Felt pockets stretch open to receive 4 to 6 inch potted plants. Each pocket is 10" wide by 6" deep.
Included Root Wrappers make it easy to change, arrange and handle plants. Hand water or connect to automatic drip irrigation systems. Create living walls of big or small.
Our innovative design routes water to the central layer and protects walls from moisture and keeps the front dry. Simply wrap the plants with the root wrappers in their existing soil and slide them into the pockets, creating your own wall gardens. Align multiple panels for massive living walls.
EASY TO MAINTAIN
It is only necessary to water the top row of pockets, letting the moisture spread to the lower levels. The microfibers provide a highly efficient grid to deliver water to every plant. Because water flows down, you don't have to worry about favoring the top row of plants over the bottom levels. Based on how much collects at the bottom, you will quickly learn how much water is sufficient for your vertical garden. Runoff can be collected in drip trays to be recirculated or drained away. If your living wall is outside, simply let the water drip to the ground.
DURABLE AND SAFE
Florafelt is hypo-allergenic, moth-proof, mildew and odor-resistant and contains no irritants or carcinogens. The backing board is a sturdy plastic sheeting extruded from polypropylene (HDPE). Its fluted ribs support both surfaces, making it light-weight, tough and abuse resistant. It is both chemical and water resistant.

Water wicking micro-fibers wick moisture, roots grow into the felt.
Our hand-made vertical garden planters are designed to use the micro fibers in synthetic felt so that all the plants are watered equally. The felt is made from recycled plastic water bottles, a non-toxic nylon fiber that is indestructible and tough.
A framework for life.
This amazing material provides a safe growing medium that is pH neutral and non-reactive, so you can garden organically right on your wall - it's even safe for vegetables and herbs! Roots grow right into the felt, which comes alive thanks to the microbiology in the soil.
Keep it tidy with Root Wraps
Swaddle your roots.
Root Wrappers are small squares of the same felt that make planting easier. They let you change and arrange your living wall at will.
The non-binding wraps have a loose weave that let roots grow through the felt and into the planter. This let's plants reach full maturity giving you a very long life to your vertical garden.
Installs go fast and let you be creative with your designs. You can combine multiple plants to create even more complex planting combinations. It's like painting with plants.
