Small Space - Big success

My daughter and her husband have the tiniest yard you can imagine in the centre of Dublin.  It is probably about 6 feet by 8 feet in total and has a large manhole in the middle. Not a promising start for a garden then! Last year they both got very interested in making their tiny outside space a more attractive place and they filled the yard with shelves of plants and gained a lot of knowledge of what their plants might like in the challenging conditions of very little light!

When they travelled abroad for Christmas this year they saw and fell in love with the idea of a Living Wall.

So here it is!

Wow! Very well done to your daughter, and all involved. I suspect you had a LOT to do with it too.

Looks really cosy as well as colourful, Hazel!!

Very nice. Might be a bit cluttered in such a small space, but really making full use of it.

Well done to them!  Reach for the sky!  A living wall is so much better than a plain stone one.  Food for the eye and soul.

The walls are absolutely awful - so covering so much of them is a huge plus!

A glorious space for them to enjoy and the lovely old brick walls set the plants off so well. I hope we get a sunny warm summer for them to enjoy their garden. Well done.
