We recommend that you screw the panels directly into the wall using the appropriate screws and plugs depending on the wall type. There are holes in the plastic back panel which can be used for the screws.
Plasterboard – Our preference is to screw directly into the wall using a 20mm plasterboard screw with a good thread. There are pre-made holes on the back of the panels for you to use.
Timber – Simple timber screws only. Try using a screw with a large head for more coverage.
Stone wall – Nylon nail plugs. Pre-drill a hole, place the panel on the wall and hammer the plug. Alternatively pre drill a hole, add a plastic plug and screw.
Concrete – Nylon nail plugs. If you are unable to drill the wall, try cladding the wall with plywood and use timber screws.
Wire fence – Use black cable ties to hold in place.
Fence – Screw directly using metal screws. If you don’t want exposed screws on the other side, you can pre-drill a few holes in the fence and use black cable ties to hold it all in place. If this also isn’t an option, we recommend making a timber frame for your panels to be mounted on to.
The panels can be clipped together using the built in pins and holes on the back panel or alternatively the back panels can be tie wrapped together.
Step by step instructions
Step 1 - make sure the plants on the panels are facing upwards when you hold them up to the wall. Also make sure each panel is orientated the same way before fixing by checking the holes & clips are all orientated in the same way. If you are unsure about the orientation check with the product photos on our website.
Step 2 - we recommend painting your wall black or dark green. This is not essential but we recommend for the best possible finish.
Step 3 - to begin the wall we recommend your start from the top left and work your way across the wall.
Step 4 - use a spirit level to mark a guideline for the fixing points. The guideline will usually follow the holes in the rear plastic grid.
Step 5 - fix your first panel using the guideline you created in step 4.
Step 6 - fix the next panel following the guide line and screw the top using your guideline to keep level.
Step 7 - clip the two panels together using the clips on the sides of the panel - hopefully the panels are orientated the same way as mentioned in step 1.
Step 8 - repeat the process until the top row is finished.
Step 9 - once the first row is clipped in place and fixed to the wall on the top and bottom, move on to the second row.
Step 10 - repeat the process for the second row.
Step 11 - clip the first and second rows together. Use the clips on the edge of the panels to lock the next row in place. Once clipped in place, screw the panels to the wall to secure the panels.
Step 12 - repeat until you have finished.
Once finished be sure to tease out the foliage so it is lush and full. This is particularly relevant where the panels join, we recommend you do this to hide the joins..
