At its heart, the Tournesol VGM® system is a recycled plastic planting module attached to stainless steel hanging rails. Once grown in it provides instant, complete coverage of any vertical surface. A wide, controllable variety of plant designs can be used in any horticultural condition. Modules are available with an optional stabilized growingt media for peak plant performance. Designed to last the life of the building, VGM® is backed by Tournesol’s 30 years of experience.
Each planting module is available with a generous 4” or 8” soil profile. Because root growth isn’t limited by restricting cells or baffles, plants grow healthier and stronger, which means lower maintenance yet more spectacular plants. Modules are shipped broken down to the jobsite, then assembled, filled, and planted by local contractors. Grow-in typically takes 1-3 months prior to hanging. Modules are 100% post-consumer recycled polypropylene, and feature punch-outs for side, top, or bottom plantings.
The stainless steel rails require minimal penetrations, and can be installed independent of the modules. They mount on any type of structurally sound wall, including building facades, screen walls, or walkways. The stainless brackets are mounted quickly and easily, with no screws or special mounting hardware. They may be removed just as easily for design changes or maintenance.
