Create Your Vertical Grass Wall
So, you’ve decided to build your grass wall yourself and don’t know where to get started? We’re here to help. Before you get started with building you’ll need to collect these materials:
- Tape measure
- Staple gun
- Saftey glasses
Step1: Measure and Plan
Before making any purchase measure the wall or area you plan on putting your wall. Think out of the box! What will you be attaching to your grass wall? Will you be cutting out large pieces or smaller squares for a more abstract look?
No matter the look you’re going for before you attach anything to your wall or buy your materials measure your wall. Be sure to buy extra material in case you make mistakes. Use your chalk to outline where you want your grass wall to go.
Step 2: Get the Grass
Artificial Landscape Grass

You can build hedges into squares, rectangles, or any other custom shape that fits your exact needs.
After you’ve measured your wall and outlined your design it is time to buy your grass. If you want be creative you can order pre-cut artificial grass pieces so you can create an original work of art. Use longer sheets of artificial grass to cover your entire wall if you are creating a bigger project.
Step 3: Get Real Plants (Optional)

Attaching the grass to your wall is not a difficult process but differs depending on the type of wall you have.
Drywall. Use a staple gun to attach your grass to the wall. With some assistance press the grass flatly on the wall and add your staples to the perimeter of each piece. Staple the edges to tamper down the grass in the position you want.
Cement, Brick, Plastic. For thicker walls use a stronger adhesive such as a polyurethane construction adhesive.
