TerraScreen® is a simple, cost-effective and maintenance-friendly living wall system, designed especially for interior and “intimate” exterior green wall installations. Often described as living art, the TerraScreen® allows the designer, landscaper, or owner to use plants to establish a living, breathing focal point, set a mood or celebrate a season.
All panels are made of black powder- and zinc-coated steel wire, with integral wall brackets. Panels may be mounted adjacent or above one another to create larger coverage area. The sides of the TerraScreen® system can be covered with a simple powder-coated steel cover. The irrigation system may be connected manually to a hose or water cart, or plumbed to a timer system. Watering up to 35 plants takes no more than 3-5 minutes at a time. Tournesol Siteworks recommends placing a trough below the TerraScreen® to capture any water that may drain off the system.
The simplicity of TerraScreen® lies in the use of 6” plants in their nursery pots, rather than plants directly grown in soil media. This allows a light, easy-to-mount support system, which disappears behind the plants as they are set into cachepots on the frame. A controlled sub-irrigation system prevents run-off or spills, and allows for easy replacement of plants as wished. TerraScreen® was originally developed by Planterra, a leading interior landscape design and maintenance company, specifically to meet the needs of the hospitality industry. It is the solution to the challenge of installing a living, wall that is instantly lush, yet easy to refresh and maintain.
