Imagine & Innovate 2014

From our December email blast…tournesolsiteworks_jan_13

Nobody is innovating greenwall like Tournesol Siteworks! This year we’ve watched the living wall market’s continued growth – but recognized we’re still in the early days. We’ve knitted together a network of reliable installing contractors that know and understand our systems, and got tremendous feedback that has continued to drive our development efforts. Looking forward to 2014, we are excited about the new products that enhance our already market-leading VGM modular living wall, and expanding the opportunities to put greenwall in places where it wasn’t practical before. With the start of a new year, this is the time to explore your options regarding green wall installations.

Our new sponge-like stabilized media block for VGM living wall modules answers many of the questions that customer ask. The stabilized media simplifies irrigation and leads to a more uniform moisture level as well as minimizes falling soil (even without the media bag). The unique structure ensures aeration at the plant ‘s roots, which speeds grow-in and keeps plants at their healthiest. We work with one of the leading horticulturalists working with this type of material – it’s a great fit.

The VGP is our inventive tray-based green wall system. It’s a cost-efficient solution for small to medium size walls. The installation above, at a private residence in Marin County, was set up last week and will be planted this week. VGP is perfect for residential and light commercial installations. Look for our advertisements in the most upcoming issues of LAM and Architectural Record. Explore your options!

AND, FINALLY…

Our new full-line catalog is coming!! This year’s book will be 112 pages of applications, images, product information and technical data.  We’re anticipating that it will be mailed mid-January.  If you feel like you haven’t been on our mailing list for catalogs in a while (and would like a mailed copy), please send your contact information to catalog@tournesolsiteworks.com.

This year we’re approaching the organization of the catalog somewhat differently. In the past we’ve usually put the “newer” product groups towards the front, and put the pots & planters (still our biggest single category) towards the back. We’re now dividing things between “product you can see” (site furnishings, pots & planters, our new Boulevard wood tiles) towards the front, and the “stuff you don’t” (deck & paver pedestalsgreenwallcontainer irrigationroot barrier & drainage control) towards the back. With products grouped in six categories, it’s a lot to organize!  We hope that it will be easier to use, and would appreciate your feedback.

 

 

Our New Catalog is Here!

It’s finally here!  Once we finished with our new website, the marketing team needed something else to do. We went to work on the catalog – in the last two years, we’ve increased its size by more the 35%!

We added 20 pages (its now 120 pages) and well over 25 new products, including our new benches and tables (including TWIG and the new Flow planter bench), as well as our entire range of deck and paver support products. We’ve been selling most of these for almost a year, so it’s about time we got them in the book.

New for this year are sections detailing design services we’ve begun offering, as well as a new “project board” feature for each product group. We show off several new installations and link to its blog posting for more information.

The cover photo (above), a fantastic residential terrace on a high rise in Chicago, was just featured in our blog here. The Urban and Wilshire Collection pots (with CWM irrigation) have been on the patio for over four years, and still look terrific. The owner contacted after receiving our last newsletter to share how pleased they are with our product!

 You can download a PDF version of our catalog here, or send an email to request that one be mailed to you.

Tournesol Container Irrigation in the Frontgate catalog

Design for custom irrigation insert for Frontgate

It’s been some time since we’ve had a product other than our Flower Framer windowboxes sold in the retail arena. We were delighted to be approached by Frontgate (a division of Cinmar), who were looking for a container irrigation insert to sell along with an exclusive pot this year. They were able to fit our standard CWC-1300 and CWC-1600 irrigation inserts to several pots that they offer, but had something special in mind for their feature product this Spring. They wanted a custom size for a large, square woven planter.

Our New 2011 Catalog is now available

Our new catalog is now available!  At 100 pages, it has even more product information, technical data and images of Tournesol Siteworks projects around the country.

The cover is from a roofgarden in NYC, designed by Landgarden Landscape Architects and installed and maintained by Greener by Design. The long, linear character of the patio is broken up by the containers along either edge. Without the right plants and maintenance, it could feel terribly sparse.  The way it turned out was a credit to all – and the owner has come back and purchased more product for the same project.  Much thanks to Richard Heller and the crew at Greener by Design for the use of the image.

new Aquarian Collection pots

The new catalog is updated with information on the VertiGreen Hybrid 3D Trellis, our newest collection of Aquarian planters and a range of new recyclers, ash & trash cans. We also feature the improved AutoFill Container Irrigation System, which was re-engineered in 2010.

If you’ve spoken with someone from Tournesol in the last 6 months, you’ve probably heard about the new catalog that was “just around the corner”.  While it took a lot longer to pull together than we anticipated, it’s finally here! 

 At 88 pages, it has complete sections on our Green Building Products (including living wall, green facades, and our new VertiGreen product), Container Irrigation, and Pots, Planters and Site Furnishings.  In addition to complete product specifications we’ve added complete technical sections on installation and use of the products.  Oh, and did we mention pictures? It’s full of installation images to give you an idea how others have used our products, and provide inspiration for your next project.

You can view the pdf of the catalog here, or drop us a line to get a hard copy via mail.  We’d also love your commentary or thoughts on it, too.
