I always wanted a living wall and Ive come across several ones, but I always wondered how it works. I mean soil, water and mud in my home ain´t particularly what I fancy most. The first one I came across was in a cafe in Copenhagen, it was made of textile and looked quite cool from a long distance but when I sat nearby the textile looked dirty and way too “a live” to me!! I put on my thinking cap and tried to figure out, how I could build one myself – but then myMinigarden all of a sudden popped up – Here was the answer! 😀
Mini Garden states on their website that you can grow whatever even if you dont have green fingers, THATS ME I thought… and guess, myMinigarden IS ME!
Mini Garden is made of plastic and modular so you can expand, rebuild and move it if you like – you can even get a corner-garden. I wanna share my experience with this cool product, that just made my homey life a bit more cozy, not to mention healthy 😉
This was my first meeting with the mini garden, honestly, my first thought – its never gonna happen! But, I was really surprised how easy it is too build – even the irrigation system, so cool! But, I must admit I still haven’t developed the skills to use the huge pump easily, but the homepage has video shots and descriptions that helps even me 😉
AND, a major bonusinfo! The Mini Garden is made of maintenance -free material which is approved for food production, that means NO harmful substances released from the plant box to your plants, herbs, strawberries or whatever you fancy growing.
STEP BY STEP
- Secure the brackets to the wall
- Place the drip tray
- Start off by adding Leca balls to the planting pits, then soil, a little water and then your green goddess
- Place it on the drip tray and before you add the next drip tray remember to place the irrigation system – you can’t go wrong, the guideline is very educational (se photos)
- You get the best result if you secure every layer of the boxes to the wall
- Repeat and build!
Irrigation system 😉
WOW, SIMPLY LOVE IT! Easy – just the way I like it! It takes no time to build your living wall, what takes time is to plant the greenies, but its all worth!
How do you like it?? 😀
