FosterPlants Completes Vertical Plant Wall
Miami, FL/ FosterPlants(tm), Inc. a specialty award winning plantscape company in Miami, FL. has completed the installation of a vertical plant wall in the master bathroom of a luxury high-rise condominium in Miami Beach, FL.
“We are honored to have been selected by Miami design firm Design Related, LLC. to work with them on this project, and partnering with Principal Milena Paparoni from concept to realization resulted in aliving wall that will thrive in its environment.” said Steve Foster, President, FosterPlants(tm). Inc.
Located on a high floor of the exclusive condominium property, the 12′ by 6′ living wall faces floor to ceiling windows and receives natural filtered light for most of the day. Designed in-house by Steve Foster, the living wall is fully automated with built-in irrigation controlled by an electronic timer which provides irrigation for ten minutes seven days per week. “We selected the greenwalls™ modular system as we have extensive experience and success with this panel system” says Mr. Foster.
The greenwall™ contains over 600 plants individually planted into the proprietary foam medium which transports the water through two horizontal irrigation hoses, concealed within the system. Water use is minimal due to the short irrigation duration and after the initial acclimation period, and to protect the client’s investment, professional horticultural service will be provided every other week by a FosterPlants™ Horticultural Specialist.
Professionally designed and installed vertical plant walls typically cost anywhere from $100 to over $200 per square foot, depending upon the complexity of the design process and the system installed. Professional horticultural service is always suggested in order to ensure the long-term success of the vertical garden.
