Keywords: Architecture, Design And Installation

Cape Contours is experienced in the design and installation of Green Walls or ‘Living Walls’.

The trend of vertical gardening is growing in popularity and adds a beautiful living element to exterior or interior walls and architecture.

Our unique design can be customized to fit any space, using a light steel framework that holds pockets of specially formulated soil mix, with a unique irrigation and fertigation system, so that a variety of sun and shade-loving plant species can be successfully grown and maintained.

Advantages of Green Walls:

  • Add interest and a ‘living tapestry’ to dull or lifeless walls and architecture
  • Can be designed to fit awkward spaces left over by renovations
  • Can be adapted into a screen/partition for interior or exterior spaces
  • Extend available ‘garden space’ in apartments or small café’s/shops
