What's not to love about vertical gardens and green roofs? The actual task of making them, maybe? No worries, GSky Plant Systems can do the work for you. The company has installed over 50 vertical gardens in North America, and offers four different systems based on size and complexity needs — indoors and out. According to the company, Gsky has installed 4 of the 5 largest vertical gardens in North America. You may have seen their work at several West Elm, Whole Foods, and W Hotel locations, but they also do residential installations, and offer a wide variety of amazing pattern and design ideas. Here are the four installation systems they offer:
Pro Wall Panel System: Flexible, modular system comprised of proprietary panels. Used for creating virtually any type of design on any type of surface. Through the use of a proprietary structural growth medium, they perform well in high-wind and seismic prone areas. Self-irrigating and low-maintenance, they are installed fully grown to provide an instant effect.
Versa Wall Tray System: Trays that hold industry standard 4" - 4.5" pots and water the plants without dripping water out the front of the system. Perfect for areas with seating in front of the wall, tight areas without room for a drip pan, etc. This system is very easy to maintain and can be installed without a direct water connection to the wall. It also features 100% water efficiency, meaning there is zero water waste when used with the recirculation option.
Basic Wall Container System: Container system with trellis that trains vines over an integrated container and screen that is attached to the building facade. Best used for creating large outdoor green walls without a pattern, they are the most cost effective solution.
Smart Wall Cabinet: Best suited for indoor environments such as lobbies, reception areas, hallways and other places of high traffic. Built for quick and simple deployment, the GSky Smart Wall system is durable, easy to maintain and economical.
