Entry Description

Urbio is the magically magnetic urban vertical garden! As urban dwellers, it can be difficult to find space to exercise our green thumbs. Urbio is a vertical gardening system that will help us transform any wall or ferrous metal surface into a beautiful vertical garden. Each vessel is made of recycled plastic and is equipped with neodymium magnets that are strong enough to hold almost anything to the wall. The metallic wall plates are modular, and can easily be mounted to any wall. Mount just one Urbio vessel, or fill your wall with them. Alternatively, each vessel can be mounted individually with a separate wall puck. These pucks can also be used to attach two pots together for a nice centerpiece.

One of the greatest concerns for indoor gardeners is cleanliness. That's why the Urbio vessels simply detachable from the wall, allowing you to water, replant, aerate, and prune your garden. Urbio vessels don’t have drainage holes. Borrowing techniques from hydroponic gardeners, placing a layer a pumice stone in the bottom of each vessel eliminates the need for messy drainage holes.

Urbio can accommodate any space- mount a single vessel or tile it to create an entire wall. It's perfect for a small apartment, or an inviting commercial space. The vessels are available in four sizes- 4"x5", 4"x10", 10"x5" and 10"x10". Urbio can also be used as a organizational storage system. Urbio can hold many different items in any room of your house. Urbio is versatile, expandable, and affordable. It’s the perfect system to liven up a wall while growing herbs, succulents, and other small plants, and keep your environment organized and tidy.
