vertical garden expert

Hello, I am Felicity Waters.  I have been selling, designing and installing Vertical Gardens since 2009.

In 2010 I was the first landscape designer to show vertical gardens at Chelsea Flower Show in London.

My UK company, GardenBeet.com, provided design and vertical garden support in 2012 to the BBC’s Gardeners World presenters – Monty Don, Carol Klein, Joe Swift and Rachel de Thame. 

I have provided expert opinion to numerous UK and European News Services since 2009 including Brazil’s TV Globo and London’s Time Out Magazine, The Guardian and The Times.

I have used a diverse range of vertical garden systems throughout my career. I have directed the installation of vertical gardens in the UK, Middle East, Europe and Australia.

I also have a Masters Degree in Landscape Architecture. For over 15 years I worked as a Landscape Architect in both Australia and UK.

Many of the projects I worked on featured architecturally designed noise walls.

The noise walls are kilometers long and reach up to 15 meters high.

Some projects won design awards.

From the road these walls are spectacular. But for the local residents they are downright ugly. 

Nine metre high walls were sometimes only a meter from a family’s kitchen window.

Growing gardens on noise walls seemed a logical way of reducing the impact.

Freeway design sparked my curiosity in growing plants on walls. I have been an active participant in the vertical garden industry ever since.
