We specialize in vertical gardens and have a comprehensive range of products and optons, custom made to suit your needs. We have a new technology that enables us to waterproof timber so that is resists the elements and is ideal for constructing gardens.
Our vertical gardens come in two forms: 1) green walls, suitable for outdoor applications; and 2) vertical planter stacks, suitable for indoor applications. Both forms can be mounted on wheels suitable for commercial applications such as mobile gardens for wedding receptions, studios, foyers, and restaurants. Mobile gardens can be used in dark areas and moved into lighter areas when not in use.
GREEN WALLS (OUTDOOR)
Our outdoor garden walls consist of soil sandwiched between pine palings or planks with apertures that enable the plants to enter the sandwich, but prevent the soil from exiting. Green walls can be one- or two-sided and mounted as a free-standing wall, or against an existing wall. Irrigation is via a drip-irrigation hose mounted at the top of the wall, so that water trickles down through the soil profile. These systems can be reticulated to direct the water overflow to specified palces. The soil sandwich is an exceptonally good environment for the plants' roots, as waterproof pine construction insulates the soil from the heat of the day, which prevents the most common problem with potted plants, root rot. By controlling water, temperature and oxygen penetration, the ecology of the soil is shifted to favour the plants, as pH and nutrient production are optimised and plant diseases are suppressed.
Green walls are ideal as privacy screens for separating neighbouring balconies, as fences and petitions to create private rooms in your garden or as the walls of a gazebo, patio or shade house. Cafes and outdoor restaurants can take advantage of the privacy and sound reduction that plants offer. Plants absorb sound and can turn a noisy roadside eyesore into a lucrative elfresco dining area with style, ambiance and intimacy requiring very low maintenance.
VERTICAL GARDENS (INDOOR)
Our indoor vertical gardens are made of lined waterproof planter boxes and mounted on a suitable footing as a free-standing structure, or where possible fixed to a wall or other suitable structure (e.g. studs or pillars). They have large water reservoirs filled with pearlite and are separated from the soil using a geopolymer polypropylene filter fabric so that the water is wick-fed and remains aerobic for a healthy soil ecology.
These indoor vertical gardens make attractive features in foyers and reception areas and in bars and restaurants they can be used as privacy screens to create intimate areas for romantic dinners. Drab offices come to life and become a calm professional working space and waiting rooms for professinals such as doctors and dentists take on a relaxing ambience that reduces stress.
Mobile indoor vertical gardens on wheels enable the gardens to be moved to suit the dynamic needs of entertainment areas and enable the plants to be spelled in lighter areas to keep the plants health and growing.
