San Francisco's foggy Fillmore district is ideal for grottos of lush ferns that enhance a spa and shower hidden within the plant wall. A total of 2000 plants are growing in three massive living walls throughout the home, the tallest of which towers 25 feet. They transform this luxurious urban home into a natural oasis.
Rock and Rose worked with landscape architect Tim O'Shea to design these massive vertical gardens. They used the Florafelt Pro System with direction by Chris Bribach of Plants On Walls, system installation by Mike Long of Longevity Construction, and final planting by Michael Bonicci of Showplant Nurseries.
Tim O'Shea chose a collection of practical yet lush ferns for the cavernous, low-light conditions including Mother, Maidenhair, Bird Nest, and Blue Star ferns. Babytears and Soleirolii provide a variety of textures and colors that grow into a smooth delicate carpet with a subtle wave of contrast from the yellow flowers of Maroon Oxalis.
