Varden Trays

American Made, Recycled, food grade structural plastic trays designed to snap onto Varden structural support wire panels and carry the Varden 2′ mesh socks filled with Growing Media or the 1′ Ellepot Pouch.
Each tray covers .5 sf of wall area and features iintegrated receptors for drip irrigation lines and residual water retention capacity. Trays come in two versions, closed bottom for living walls and vertical gardens, or open bottom for screening / trellising. In any service application Varden Trays are very durable and last for many years indoors and outdoors.

Varden Sleeves

Our American Made Varden Sleeves cover .333 sf each and utilize the same plastic formulation, mounting hardware and wire panels as Varden trays. They offer a deeper media profile in a single 100mm x 240mm deep Ellepot. Sleeve structures can be populated to suit desired density based on species and mature top-growth, featuring integrated receptors for drip irrigation.   Sleeves can be customized for air-flow and moisture retention on a variety of “4 season” exterior Living Wall, Vertical Garden or Greenhouse applications.


Durable tubular mesh, filled with .333cf of blended growing media to support excellent living wall plant health on the finished Varden living wall. Each filled sock measures 5″ in dia. x 24″ long and covers 1 sf of vertical wall area once installed into 2 Varden Trays.
Combining the air pruning and respiration offered by the mesh, with large volumes of securely contained compost-based growing media, our socks yield excellent long-term growth of tropicals, natives and edible veggies! Extremely durable and well suited for both outdoor and indoor walls.
