Going green is definitely a hot trend in the decorating world and homeowners are increasingly embracing both design and décor that is sustainable and eco-friendly. Of course, in the urban jungle creating an oasis of green is a much more challenging task and often there is little room for a full-fledged garden or even a small, green retreat. This is precisely where living walls come in handy. Creating delightful pockets of green both on the inside and outdoors, the living wall allows you to bring natural goodness to the lifeless urban environment.
A Living wall is indeed an awesome addition and a DIY living wall adds to the fun twist to this green upgrade and gives you more freedom in regards to the plants and succulents you use. It definitely offers a more hands-on experience and makes handling your living wall a whole lot easier as it ages. But not all of us have the time or the crafting skills to create a stunning DIY living wall. This is precisely why we have rounded up 10 best DIY living wall kits, which combine the ease of an installed living wall with a dash of DIY style. Enjoy the green ride –
