This residential Green Wall installation belongs on the cover of any home and garden magazine. Designed by April Philips of April Philips Design Works and installed by Kurt Heitmeyer of JKT Associates, it is truly a work of art. The client was looking for a dramatic backdrop to the spa and sitting area.  The team’s solution: a spectacular 200 sq. ft. living wall!

The richly planted freestanding wall is highlighted by a fountain that cascades into the spa on one face and an outdoor shower on the other side.

8 plants finished

According to Philips Design:

“The customer, an avid entertainer, wanted a space to accommodate gatherings and spur conversation. The green wall emerged as the focal point, providing both spatial definition and the concentrated plantings articulate as an art piece. The lush foliage and varied texture create an ever-changing composition.”

The images above show the wall after a year of maintenance. The client has been delighted by the results, and surprised by the relative lack of care required.
