Many vertical succulent gardens are grown in a simple wooden box, with a depth of about two inches (5 cm.). The optimum size of the box should be no bigger than 18 inches x 24 inches (46 x 61 cm.). Bigger sizes tend to get out of hand, loosing soil or even plants when hanging on a wall.
A living wall can last up to 4-6 years depending on the conditions and if you are properly maintaining and taking care of the plant.
