Spreading Meaning of Sustainability to Key West

What is a green wall?

A green wall is essentially a wall that is blanketed with vegetation. It is often times hung on an exterior or interior wall of a building. Green walls are also known as bio-walls, living walls, or vertical gardens.

To create a green wall, plants are first placed into separate panels and acclimated to growing conditions in their cells. Irrigation pathways are installed into the panels, so plants are given the perfect amount of water. After the plants have grown, they are hung vertically to resemble a colorful bio-mural and thus unveiling the beauty that is a green wall.

Our projects in Key West include green wall constructions, as well as some of the many landscaping services we have to offer. Principal designer Michael Madarash kicked off the KW expansion by giving a seminar to the Key West Garden Club about green walls, which was attended by over 45 individuals and was very well received.
