Dream Hotel, Miami – Custom Planter Liners

 
36″ x 36″ x 31″ Deepstream IPE planter with Tournesol thermoplastic liner

 We work closely with several other manufacturers of pots, planters and containers, and thought it might be interesting to show the results of our collaboration.  Deepstream Designs creates wonderful planters using extruded aluminum legs and IPE wood slats (as shown above), or resin and composite panels.  We provide them with our standard thermoplastic planter liners (either with or without container irrigation), or in this case, custom-manufactured welded planter liners. 

More VGM living walls in action

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.
