Unique designs can make your property stand out from the crowd
Greenscape has offered Living Walls to our commercial clients for a number of years now and they have been very well received by clients and visitors to their properties. The first Living Walls we designed were for Cameron Village in Raleigh. We have also created unique designs for Pinecrest Plaza and Waverly Place.
If you’ve thought about adding a Living Wall to your property, here are some things to consider:
- Location, location, location! Where will the wall be placed? You’ll need to have solid wall space on the exterior of the building where we can hang the brackets for the living wall. That space needs to be located where people will actually see the wall! You might choose to place it near a front entrance, heavily traveled walkway or near an outdoor seating area. Greenscape can do freestanding walls in some instances, so if you aren’t sure about the location, just ask us.
- What’s your theme? Several of our clients have asked for living walls designed for specific events (to commemorate the 2014 US Open at Pinehurst, an edible wall at Cameron Village to promote their healthy focus partnership with WakeMed, and a living wall at Cameron Village to honor victims of domestic violence), though a theme isn’t required. We’re happy to design something noteworthy just for your space.
- Pre-planning is required. Each living wall is a unique design. The walls are grown in sections which are then installed to create the final “picture” that we hang on the wall. It takes several months of planning and growing to get the living wall ready for installation, so if you want a wall for spring, please talk to us the prior fall!
- Care and upkeep is required. Greenscape team members visit on a regular basis to water the wall and trim the plantings. In cases where plants have a shorter life (for example, some of the plants in an edible wall), we replace them as needed to keep the wall looking great.
