On the Grid
Recently unveiled at Victoria Gardens nursery in Rosendale: a “green” wall around the entrance, where cold-hardy succulents like sedums and sempervivum (aka hens and chicks) are thriving in soil-filled, vertical gridded panels (like the one pictured above) attached to the building. If you have a drab concrete wall that needs brightening up, this might be just the thing. Freestanding panels could screen an unsightly propane tank or air conditioner. It’s so new, at press time Victoria Gardens had yet to price the specially engineered panels. One caveat: Tough as these plants are, an automatic drip system to water them is a good idea unless you’re super-diligent.
