6 Star Geyser Greenwall

Design-Build-Care

6 Star Geyser Greenwall

Demonstrates:

  • We are NZ leaders in Green Technology winning Premier Awards for ‘Best Commercial Landscape’ and ‘Special Feature Project’ at the 2014 Landscapes of Distinction Awards
  • NZ native species can thrive in Green Walls
  • The automated system, which uses harvested rain water, has no soil making it lightweight and stable in the long term
  • Natural Habitats modular structure enables ease of installation with no structure design or construction required

Natural Habitats designed and installed this south facing Green Wall onto NZ’s first six-star green rated building. Twenty NZ native species were selected accordingly, so ‘light loving’ plants were positioned at the top and ‘cool shade’ species at the bottom.

In total there were 2086 plants used, a lot which are not typically used in landscaping, including the rare Jovellana Sinclairii.

Reference

“Very original blend of horticultural innovation and aesthetics. This Green Wall represents progress in the use of the indigenous plants within that technology. It integrates beautifully into the building and contributes tangibly to the courtyard.”
