7. Living ScreenThis vertical planting functions as an outdoor room divider for the backyard of a home in Orange County, California. The tiered planting troughs were constructed using wood boards lined with pond liner (punctured with drainage holes) to prevent rotting. Easy-care succulents are a great choice for living walls and difficult-to-reach vertical applications, given that they’re drought-tolerant and need little care. Here, designer Sacha McCrae of Living Gardens Landscape Design used a mix of sunburst aeonium (Aeonium arboreum ‘Sunburst’), purple aeonium and trailing string-of-pearls succulents (Senecio rowleyanus), as well as low-water coast rosemary (Westringia fruticosa) and ‘Elijah Blue’ fescue (Festuca glauca ‘Elijah Blue’).
