Specifying the VertiGreen® 3D Trellis
Installation – Wall mount brackets are fixed-length, and will hold the back of the panel close, 3”, 6”, 9”, 12” or 18” from the wall. The post bracket for freestanding installations is designed for a 3” round or square post. All brackets are powder coated the same color as the panel, and may be used with any grid spacing. Brackets mounted to uneven surfaces (stucco, concrete, masonry) should use the included plastic mounting pad. Bracket anchors should withstand a minimum of 500 lbs. pull-out force, although the weight of the trellis is less than 100 lbs.
Living Walls - Use the VertiGreen together with VGM living wall modules to create a lush living wall at a lower cost per square foot. Start the vines and plants in a module, then allow them to grow onto adjacent VertiGreen panels. Coverage is fast, complete, and can cost up to 50-75% less than using a living wall on its own.

Panel Grid Size – While grid spacing is partially a matter of decorative preference, more dense, fuller-growing vines are better suited to open grid spacing, while slower-growing, less aggressive species are adapter to smaller spacing. Because of the panel strength required, the wire gets thicker as the grid spacing grows; 11 ga. for 3” spacing and 3/16” for 6” spacing.
Plant Coverage and the VertiGreen Trellis
A common concern with any trellis system is coverage – how long, and how complete? A few tips:
