Many of our customers looking at the Tournesol VGM modular living wall system intend on using it for commercial installations. This is a wonderful example of what it can do in a residential setting. The design, by Michelle Bond of Thumbellina Gardens in San Francisco, covers the back wall of a back yard at the bottom of a large hill. This installation was one of the best-documented that we’ve seen, and we’re fortunate that Michelle shared her images with us.  Continue reading Residential VGM Living Wall, San Francisco, CA

This is a project that will define the capabilities of what our new VertiGreen Hybrid system can do.  That might sound a little dramatic, but when we saw the images, we realized that the contractor, Blondies Treehouse of Mamaroneck, NY, really understands the product and used it to their advantage.  As a reminder, they gained experience with the product at the Whole Foods store in Long Grove, NY.

VGM Living Wall accenting a terrace over a reflecting pool

One of the first VGM Living Wall projects we sold went to this beautiful residential project in Beverly Hills. Designed by the firm of Rios Clementi Hale, it was a solution to creating a green wall behind a reflecting pool underneath a lovely terrace.  Installed by James Cowan & Assocs., the wall looks as good (if not better) today than the day it went in. More images and description after the jump…

Greenscaped Buildings, a good customer and green building guru in San Diego, is in the news again.  Their local CBS affiliate did a segment on the edible wall he planted at his facility last March (view here).  It has several good views of his VGM edible garden, but also shows a row of VGM ready for planting (the Urban Core project, I believe).

The Pizzeria Mozza project (you can see the VGM growing in during the video) is now scheduled to be installed at the end of February.  They’ve told us that the plants are getting nice and full, just the way the client wants them.

We’ve also just received an order for a fantastic VGM living wall designed by Rios Clementi Hale in Los Angeles.  The project,  a private residence in Beverly Hills, will be installed by James H. Cowan & Associates of Malibu. The design uses the VGM integrated into a fountain wall, over a fountain basin with planter islands. We’re hoping that we’ll be able to show you images once this truly fabulous project is installed.
