Looking to bring the outdoors in? Transform indoor areas into living works of art with our unique plant portraits. Our vertical living wall planters are perfect for areas with limited floor space and are custom designed for your location and style. The best part is, these plant portraits are not only beautiful, but they also act as natural air purifiers. You get beautiful living art and cleaner air!

For those interested in adding living art to their walls, here’s how our five-step process works:

  1. Select Location

Areas with plenty of natural lighting are preferred but we can add in supplemental light if needed.


  1. Choose Plants

When selecting plants for a living wall, we start with determining the final aesthetic. We can arrange plants in specific patterns and color palettes or go for a more natural look. Some of our favorites for living walls include:

Pothos – With heart shaped, waxy leaves that are glossy green or variegated, the pothos plant makes a great addition to any plant portrait. They are also excellent air cleaners, removing several toxins from the air.


Philodendron – There are several hundred species of philodendron plants with various coloring, leaf shape and size. Philodendrons adapt to various conditions and thrive indoors year round.


Peperomia – With leaves in various shapes, size and color, the peperomia plant is a wonderful addition indoors. The peperomia is also known to be excellent at reducing the level of formaldehyde indoors, which is a major air toxin found inside.


Dracaena – Known for its long flowy shaped leaves, the dracaena comes in both green and variegated varieties.


Peace Lily – These fabulous air purifiers are very hardy and thrive indoors. They brighten up any space with their blooms.


Croton – Looking for a punch of color on the wall – look no further! Crotons come in a wide variety of hues, including yellow, orange, red, cream, pink and even black.


  1. Hang & Install Portrait Structure

Once location and design have been determined, we hang and install the portrait structure.


  1. Place Plants

With the structure in place, we place the designated plants according to our design.


  1. Enjoy

The final step is the most fun; you get to enjoy the beauty of your plant portrait! Watch as your plants grow and fill in with time. The bonus is, you also get cleaner air due to all the air purifying benefits of the plants.
