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
A small residential installation of a TerraScreen interior living wall illustrates the flexibility of the system into nearly any application. This unit, a TW-7049 panel, was cut in two and wrapped a corner of the dining room of this home. Pictures of how it was done after the break…
