Green Wall Getaway

This week, San Francisco is the place to be for green walls and green roofs at 

121We are proud to once again be exhibiting at the Cities Alive Conference. As an inspirational and educational event for the green roof and wall industry, it features over 100 speakers, exhibitor showcase, professional development courses and “green” city tours. This industry-wide collaboration is a great opportunity to explore living architecture and see what the future holds!

Tournesol Siteworks continues to be a leader in the green wall field with exciting new innovations and installations. We look forward to seeing you at the conference this week, but in the meantime, here is a sneak peak at what it is all about – making an urban environment more green, healthy and beautiful.


Project: Juniper Networks of Sunnyvale, CA

RMW Architects of San Jose and Taniguchi Landscape Architecture of San Mateo contacted us about using our VGM Modular Living Wall on the new Juniper Networks parking garage. The structure is visible from across the campus including the outdoor patio spaces, and the goal was to enhance and soften the view of the parking structure.  Continue reading Green Wall Getaway

Tournesol at the Green Roof & Wall Conference in Philadelphia

We’ll be at Cities Alive, the Green Roof and Wall conference taking place this week in Philadelphia.  Come by and see us at booth #106!

We’ll be showing the “next generation” VGM living wall module, our new deck and paver supports, and introducing the newest iteration of our green roof trays – one that we can offer at 27% less than our previous GRT2 product!  It’s a great opportunity for those of you one the East Coast to see all the newest and greatest in landscaping roofs and walls, all in the same place. We have tickets available for the show. If you are interested, contact Chris in Inside Sales for information.

I’ll be presenting during the third session (4:30-6PM on Thursday), in the Residential/Indoor Greening track.  My presentation is “Gathering Intelligence from the Interior Trenches”, and will be a summary of what’s worked (and what hasn’t) in interior greenwall design. I took the opportunity to discuss all aspects of living walls with several interiorscapers that have set up and maintained multiple types of systems. It was a good chance for me to distill general feedback from the marketplace, and I hope the topic will resonate with the attendees. I’ll probably use the info as a source for several blog postings to come!

Finally, I was invited to be a judge for the “Awards of Excellence”, so I’m really looking forward to the presentation ceremonies. It was inspiring to see some of the tremendous work that’s being done in this space, and the winners truly deserve the recognition.

I hope that we’ll see you at the show!!
