Vertical Landscape Architects Inc., recently met with a community group to discuss the possibility of introducing living walls, green facades and associated site planning in a local park as part of a revitalization effort. While the living architecture in the urban park will help enhance the experience of park users by softening the surrounding brick walls, other concurrent revitalization efforts to improve the park include the creation of historic murals by local graffiti artists (shown below). VLA will work with the community group and any potential stakeholders to design suitable wall greening systems for the park, and to prepare cost estimates for materials and installation.
Unfortunately, funding for this project is not available and the project is on hold for now.

Vertical Landscape Architects Inc., designs, installs and maintains living walls. The pictures below show how our living walls in Toronto Offices are thriving due to our expertise, attention to detail and care. Some of the reasons for the success of our living walls is proper plant selection, thorough maintenance and educating our clients about the needs of living walls. If certain plants are not well suited to the available light, replanting can be necessary until the plants in the living wall become stable and healthy. Please contact us if you would like a living wall or wonder if a living wall is right for your space.
