CNN features a story on the Mario Batali/Pizzeria Mozza living wall

We’re just not used to this kind of attention! It’s not even us, really, but our product features prominently.

You can read the story that accompanies this video here. The Batali restaurant group really believes in the concept – they are expanding the wall at the Pizzeria Mozza, and adding an interior wall to a restaurant in Vegas.

In addition to this story, Jim was interviewed today for a nationally-shown program on Fox Business. Stories are appearing in the mainstream media with regularity – looks like greenwall is where living roofs were 3 years ago!

In addition to being media darlings, Greenscaped Buildings is working on the first exterior installation of a TerraScreen system in a unique setting on top of a building in downtown San Diego.  They are installing in the next few days, and we’ll try to get images shortly thereafter.

Update: Jim was on Fox Business News, you can see the link here.  Elizabeth Meltz, the Director of Food Safety and Sustainability for the Batali/Bastianich Hospitality Group, wrote an article for the Huffington Post emphasizing their commitment to “being green” that you can see here.

Freestanding TerraScreen Demo, Mountain View, CA

We were pleased to do a TerraScreen® demonstration this week for a very large internet company in Mountain View.  Creative Plant Design, the company’s interiorscaper, and Sunborne Nursery (a wholesale nursery and Tournesol distributor) coordinated the effort and provided the plant material. By setting up the installation on the fly and then removing it after 3 days, we showed how easy the system is to install and move around.  The demo featured a 4’x4′ and a 4’x8′ section.

One of the most attractive things for the client was the option of using the living wall as a freestanding screen that could be moved around at will. They were already using whiteboards for the same purpose. The TerraScreen stand can be outfitted with casters, and with the self-contained irrigation it is free to go anywhere.  More pictures after the break.

If you’ve browsed our catalog, you probably recognize this great installation. Joe Zazzera and his crew at Plant Solutions were one of the first companies to try out the TerraScreen® interior living wall.  They bought two 4’x4′ panels for their conference room, sight unseen! More images and description after the break.

Workplace Lab living wall, Seattle

We were recently sent images by our friends at Plantscapes in Seattle, who just completed the installation of this TerraScreen living wall. It is part of a “workplace lab” for a very large software company in Seattle. They are continually updating the way that they structure their workspaces, and invited Plantscapes to install a living wall as a demonstration project. In addition to what you see above, they will be installing a custom one-row TerraScreen panel on the endcap, to complete the wrap-around look.  They wanted to leave the end exposed initially so that the employees could understand how the system works.

More images after the break.

Mahoney’s Garden Centers will be constructing a 1200 sq.ft. landscape installation for the show and has incorporated the VGM system into their design.  Mahoney’s teamed up with BISCO, Tournesol Siteworks’ local New England distributor, to get the 10” deep VGM modules in early February so they could start the grow-in process for the show. After just a few short weeks in Mahoney’s greenhouse, the modules are filling in nicely and should be full and lush for the show.

Check back during the show for updated news and photos on the VGM Modular Living Wall.

Terrace at 211 Main St., San Francisco

Have you ever wondered what the inside of a big-time corporate boardroom looked like?  I know I did.  It was fun for us to work on this relatively small terrace project for one of the financial service titans in San Francisco. They recently moved buildings, and found themselves with a boardroom looking over an undecorated rooftop.  The view was great, but the roof wasn’t.  They brought in landscape architects Smith+Smith in San Francisco to soften the view.  Continue reading Terrace at 211 Main St., San Francisco
