This concept come to us from Brazilian design firm Rosenbaum, as part of their partnership with TV producer Luciano Huck. According to This Is Colossal, this is part of a series where “teams went through dozens of Brazilian homes” in an attempt to execute “dramatic makeovers of interior and exterior spaces.”
This urban garden, which was featured in their 48th home in the series, was such a hit that Rosenbaum released these instructions so anyone create their own. The instructions are in Portuguese, so here is a version translated into English:
• 2-liter plastic bottle, empty and clean
• Clothesline rope, twine, or wire
• Washers (two per bottle if rope or wire is chosen)
• Seedlings (herbs, vegetables, or other plants are all OK)
To secure the bottles, you must make two holes at the bottom of the cylinder and two at the top of the bottle. See the pictures for an example.
After that, thread the string through a hole and pull out through the other.
Note: Many people have asked how to make sure the bottles do not “slip” on the rope (or string or cordage). Either tie a large knot in the rope or tie the knot around a washer.
Then simply stretch and attach the rope to the wall.
