What is a Living Wall Planter?
A living wall planter is a wall-mounted frame, trellis or set of bags that can support the growth of plant life.
They vary in style, material, weight and ability to support plants – some materials are made out of water retaining felt for example. But all planters let you create a living wall, inside or out.

Could you put this garden trellis inside? Yes. Would you want to – probably not. It maybe a little chunky. By design of course.
What we love about this planter is its versatility. You can use it as a standalone living wall. Or attach it to a pre-existing living wall. Which is what makes it so suitable for urban / space-deprived areas.
Bear in mind the planter at the bottom isn’t included. But you can grow plants up the trellis. You’d just need a small planter.
This made to measure Living Wall is a cracking outdoor option. For something that is made-to-measure it is really excellent value at £243.* And yes you don’t actually get the soil and plants with it. But come on. You can get a green wall literally made to order.
*Although it should be stipulated if you want something much larger or smaller the price will change.

Wayfair’s Wood Wall Planter could arguably fit inside and out. But thanks to its supreme weather proofing and rot / rust resistance, outdoor seems a safer bet.
The tiered approach is lovely for growing a few different plants of all shapes and sizes. And its relatively small size makes it convenient for any garden or terrace. And like everything Wayfair makes, such good quality.
