HortPark – Singapore
To provide a modular vertical greening system to enable planting of a wall specifically erected for demonstration and display of various green wall systems at the HortPark.
Steel anchoring pilasters were installed on the full face of the wall with careful attention to alignment. VGMs holding primarily soil-less lightweight planting media contained in a geotextile bag were pre-planted in a nursery environment. Front and rear metal support frames are added to the VGMs on site to provide reinforcement and facilitate anchorage onto the pilasters. A drip irrigation system delivers timed release of water and nutrients to the plants. VGMs can be individually dismounted from and re-mounted onto the pilasters to allow for easy maintenance or replacement if necessary.
