You may recall the post that we featured here, about this Whole Foods store located in Lake Grove, NY. As we mentioned in that post, the installation of the initial 128 sq. ft. of living wall went so well that the owner decided to expand the wall to the entire area. Blondies Treehouse of Mamaroneck, NY, was the contractor that did both the intial as well as the subsequent installation. They’ve been extremely pleased with the way the VertiGreen Hybrid it has been growing in. We’re hoping to get installation images from another, much larger installation that they’ve recently done soon.
It was relatively easy to expand the irrigation system to cover the additional panels. The irrigation was pre-installed by Tournesol Siteworks to simplify things. You’ll note that instead of a Hybrid trellis at the head of the structure, they instead opted for the standard VertiGreen 3-D trellis panels. This points out how easy it is to mix the hybrid product with the standard trellis, yet another way to continue driving down the costs of a living wall, improving the performance of the trellis!
