Size Does Matter

Corporate offices, shopping malls and medical centers are beginning to utilize green walls in ways that introduce both nature and a sense of serenity into environments that might seem more antiseptic without them. This installation at the Edmonton International Airport gives some idea of the scale of this project by Green Over Grey

Living Large

Vertical gardens—aka green walls—allow plants to grow on a structural support with nutrients and water distributed to the plants from within the container. Designed for both exterior and interior spaces, these unique garden sculptures can transform any area into a green space like this living wall from Green Over Gray

Where the Wild Things Are

A lush green facade with a tropical jungle aura transforms this modern kitchen into a stunning showroom where cooking is rarely boring. 

Alternate Reality

This view of the kitchen's vertical garden wall suggests a tropical rain forest moved indoors. 

Organic Facade

Here's one way to make your business stand out from the competition. Inspiration Furniture in Vancouver, British Columbia, hired Green Over Grey to design one of their exterior walls as a magnificent living garden stretching from the sidewalk to the rooftop.

A Real Living Room

When we say living room, we mean it literally in this presentation of a vertical garden for a home or office. Equipped with waterproof panels and an automatic irrigation system, this living wall from Green Over Grey can accommodate flowering perennials, groundcovers, succulents and even small trees and shrubs. 

You Call This a Garage Wall?

A homeowner hired Livewall to transform his garage wall into a field of flowers, using different varieties of petunias. This is the first day of the installation.

Petunia Takeover

A month after the LiveWall installation, the garage wall has become a landscape of seasonal beauty as well as a unique interface for the building's architecture. 

Portable Nature

If you are unable to maintain a garden or don't have access to green space on your property, there are solutions like this LiveScreen model from LiveWall, which provides beautiful, low-maintenance mobile gardens you can enjoy inside or on decks and patios. 

The Living Fountain

Living walls are starting to become attractive facades for garden fountains such as this colorful creation which is showcased at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.

Three-Dimensional Art

Redefining the concept of live art, these Grovert Living Wall Planters by BrightGreen add beautiful accents to any wall and are available in various frame designs in wood, metal, copper, simulated stone and more. 

Garden Greetings

Welcome visitors to your home with a live nature display in a polymer planter from BrightGreen which can be hung separately or in groups. Plants can be watered manually by installing the GroVert Irrigator or through a built-in drip line system. 

Color Coordination

Today's green wall products offer a wide range of choices from high-end architectural designs to more affordable options like this versatile Grovert Living Wall Planter which offers a variety of frame options for specific color palettes.

Surfboard and Succulents

You can create your own unique vertical gardens by combining favorite frame styles with preferred types of vegetation such as this surf-themed wall mount from BrightGreen.

What's Hanging in Your Hall?

Nature and art converge in LivePicture, a sustainable living plant system by Ambius that comes in sizes similar to wall paintings. Instead of fine art, why not hang a living garden sculpture?

Wall Carpet

A wall becomes a carpet of thick, lush greenery in this Miami residence which was a joint project by Ambius, TRIO Design Consultants and Adam Ehlmann Design.
