Living Wall Planting Design, Installation & Maintenance
Vertical Landscape Architects Inc. recently completed an exciting living wall project in the entrance lobby at the new downtown office of Keller Williams Referred Urban Realty in Toronto. It was very inspiring to hear how much interest and appreciation there was for the living wall from the firm’s staff and associates. Vertical Landscape Architects Inc. will maintain the living wall for KWRUR as well. Pictures below show the living wall planting process and finished product by Vertical Landscape Architects Inc.
Canada Blooms 2013
Vertical Landscape Architects Inc. was invited to participate in Canada Blooms by Creative Garden Design. The exhibit, called Vertical Terraces will feature a 144 square foot living wall designed and installed by Vertical Landscape Architects. A special structure was created to hold the weight of 36 2′ x 2′ x 4″ GLTi Patented Living Green Wall panels. Below are simulations of the Vertical Terraces exhibit (providing context for both sides of the living wall), and simulations of the living wall plantings.
Institutional Green Wall Layout & Concept
Vertical Landscape Architects recently prepared a proposal for an indoor living wall for an educational institution. One of the options for the 108 square foot living wall area was to utilize 3/4 of the living wall designed for Canada Blooms, 2013. This option was simulated and shown in the following picture.

Vertical Landscape Architects Inc. planned and installed a patented living wall kit manufactured by Sage Vertical Garden Systems in a residential Toronto home. The size of the unit including trim is approximately 4.25 (w) x 3.75 (h) ft. Modular growing medium panels were pre-grown at a nearby nursery according to the desired planting plan. The room has plenty of natural light, so additional lighting was not necessary. The living wall is simply irrigated with a nearby reservoir and recirculating pump according to the manufacturer’s specifications. This project is a good example of a modest indoor living wall providing immediate and significant visual impact for the home owners.
