While the anatomy of a vertical garden is different from a normal garden, we still believe vertical gardens deserve the same approach and attention to detail as traditional gardens. To create a vertical garden that is more than simply a green wall, we consider factors like layers, texture, contrast, color, and blooming.
We admire nature’s own vertical landscapes: the wild tapestries of epiphytes and lithophytes hanging on cliff faces and tree trunks. We strive to bring some of this wilderness into our creations; to give each plant a position to unfold to its full capacity and to create captivating gardens that radiate life. Field trips are an integral part of our work, and give us the opportunity to see the plants we work with in their natural setting and to find new plants to use in our gardens.
For each project, we make a design and plant selection based on the site-specific conditions. Choosing the right plant for the right location is key to ensuring a long-lasting and thriving garden.
We believe vertical gardens can bring some of nature’s beauty to the urban landscape. Thanks to the large amount of plants that can be introduced without any demand on horizontal space, a vertical garden can give a sense of nature even in the most dense city environments.
Inspired by nature’s vertical landscapes, we create richly varied gardens with a combination of showy accent plants, group- and mass plantings. By applying our expertise and trusted materials, we are able to blend character and functionality to ensure a long-lasting and thriving installation.
