In January, we highlighted a couple of 2014 installations that we were specifically excited about including a green wall at the new Kaiser Permanente Medical Offices in Antelope Valley.
Right on schedule, the wall went up in June, and we are thrilled to show you the final product.
EPT Design specified 220 VGM modules to be installed on an outdoor walkway/parking area, and given the grow-in by Instant Jungle, the wall creates immediate and complete coverage of the vertical space.
Antelope Valley (named for the herds of Pronghorn that were found here in the 1830′s), is the gateway to the western Mojave Desert. The average temperature here is 61 deg, but that disguises lows down to 2 deg and highs up to 110 deg. It’s a dry heat, though, with low humidity year round. Due to the weather variance, this was a challenging project and a will prove to be a testament to our 8″ deep VGM3-10 module . With the generous soil profile, root growth isn’t restricted to baffles or pockets, which will mean lower maintenance, less water usage and healthier plants.
