Looking for a fresh way to liven up your garden walls? Think plants, not paintings.

Living pictures — cuttings of assorted succulents woven together in everything from picture frames to pallet boxes — have caught on among garden designers and landscapers as an easy, modern way to add color and texture to an outdoor space.

‘‘Living pictures composed of succulents have a gorgeous sculptural quality that work surprisingly well in a number of different aesthetics — contemporary, bohemian, Southwestern and more,’’ says Irene Edwards, executive editor of Lonny home design magazine. ‘‘They’re great for urban dwellers with limited space.’’

Living pictures are also nearly maintenance-free (i.e., hard to kill). So even beginners or those with the blackest of thumbs can look like the master gardener of the neighborhood.
