Vertical gardens are very appealing and offer plenty of benefits, but making them is a lot of work. Cara de Planta is a DIY vertical gardening system that persons of all ages and sizes can use to make a personalized, professional-looking vertical garden in no time. Cara de Planta means plant face, which comes from its face-like design. You don’t need to prepare the surface, since Cara de Planta has a waterproof barrier to keep the walls dry, so you can use it anywhere. There are two models available, one that lets water through with an irrigation line at the top of a garden which, with the aid of gravity, waters the whole thing. The other contains the water, so it won’t drip or stain floors or walls. The water is then recirculated to the substrate by capillarity with a special flap. Each kit comes with everything you need to get going. You can either use a soil-free or soil based system and each one is made out of recycled PET.
