We’ve all heard the saying “creating outdoor rooms.”  This is just what award winning Cleveland based landscape architecture firm 9th Avenue Designs set out to do when they created their display garden using TerraScreen.

“We are always incorporating sustainable design into our projects, and using a living wall in the setting of an art piece fit this layout beautifully”, says Patrick Beam, principal of 9th Avenue Designs. “We wanted a focal point that added visual interest in much the same way as you would have a painting in your living room/family room. The TerraScreen living wall system provided a way for us to create a living art piece.”

Another advantage of using the TerraScreen is that it is flexible enough to use inside or out. “I love the fact that each TerraScreen has the opportunity to change, and we can change plantings very easily to create seasonal interest. What better way to create privacy and a more intimate space for your deck, patio, terrace or balcony?” Terrascreen also offers the designer the ability to customize each planting scheme to the client. “I have used tropicals, perennials, annuals and even edibles in my designs.”

  1. Is each pot individually hand watered in this wall. If not how do you handle varying water requirments of plants?
    Beautiful wall by the way

  2. Hello Rudy-
    I had a discussion with Syd yesterday, he mentioned your discussion. When we set up the irrigation it is designed to deliver the same amount of water to each cachepot. The individual water hoses may be crimped and closed, which then requires that the specific plants be watered by hand. We’ve also had some customers set up the systems with their own irrigation and use drip emitters with different flow rates. This is (obviously) more complex… Hope this helps.
