This idea was passed along in our Garden Club newsletter this month.  I have a yard, but the sunny side has the absolute worst soil and the moles are a constant nuisance.  I would also suggest using these along a deck/balcony railing or a fence.  I'm sure there are some kinds of clips that could be used to avoid damage.

Some info can be found in this news article:

Boycott haters.

What a good idea. The soil here is well pretty much clay and rock so you can't have a real garden, so this would be perfect. I love how it looks too, so much prettier than making a garden in a plastic kiddie pool which has sense been the only solution I've had.

Thanks for sharing this clever idea! I may need to try this on the side of my ugly garden shed. It would really dress it up nicely.

As you sew, so shall you rip. Don't fear the ripper.

So clever an idea !
but there be new troubles that you should take much more care of them ,they are easy to dry or watering too much !

Greens, herbs, and sugar peas would be the best bet. nightshade plants (i.e. tomatoes, squash) & roots would not work because of their weight and the obvious limitation on space.
