David from Burlingame longed for a tropical garden. He lacked the large yard space so he used a vertical garden to create home to over 200 plants to fill his sun-filled atrium with life. PlantsOnWalls used their Floraframe Living Wall Kit system to create 3 custom copper framed living walls to fill the open wall space. The excessive bright light allowed for a wide variety of plants including herbs and strawberries. The entire installation is watered and fed by automatic irrigation and excess moisture neatly drains into a floor drain in the space.

West Coast Green asked PlantsOnWalls to display five fully planted Floraframe Recirc-33's at their lounge and lecture area for the 2011 Pacific Coast Building Conference. The lighted panels demonstrate how green elements can become an essential element in buildings. Significant numbers of plants in a building not only look spectacular but also filter VOCs from the air and they absorb significant amounts of carbon, making them a carbon-negative building material. This and other topics will be covered at their presentation space over the course of the conference. See: West Coast Green Salon

From left to right (shade to sun): ferns, coral bells, coleus, day lilies, and daisies. A wide variety of plants including annuals can be used in the pockets because they can be changed out seasonally.
