Well Spring Break is officially over and its back back back to work. So far, work has consisted of working on the mockup and calculating the structural weight of our vertical garden wall. The mockup is coming along with part of the cable system now in place and the walkway starting to come together. We have even started putting some puts in the cables to see how it looks.
As for the structural weight, let me say, it definitely turned out to be much heavier than I thought it would be! The soilless mix we are using in our pots really does hold an enormous amount of water! It was actually pretty amazing to see it soak it all up. The weight for each bay can be seen in the diagrams below.
