Singapore Garden Festival Hortshow, Jurong Lake Gardens


A modular green wall system for a small balcony of 36 square metres that is quick to install, sustainable, and meets local fire safety requirements.


Elmich VersiWall®GP Metal (VGP M) system was used to establish the green wall in the balcony design titled “The Capsule Garden” by  G. G. Landscapes + Construction Pte Ltd.

The VGP M system is a modular vertical greening system manufactured using aluminium for indoor green walls that meet the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) fire safety regulations of construction using non-combustible materials.

VGP M is exceptionally durable and can create free-standing green walls or be simply mounted onto concrete walls using either a proprietary rail mounted system or standard wire meshes.

In this installation, several rounded steel brackets were drilled into the plywood booth wall and a wire mesh metal frame was attached. VGP M trays brimming with various species of plants (i.e. Pteris albolineata, Philodendron birkin, Veera fern and Aglaonema auspicious) were then hooked and secured on the wire mesh metal frame.

Additional Information:
– VGP M may be planted in situ or carry up to two conventional 100 mm potted plants for greater interchangeability in temporary displays.

– Each VGP M tray conceals irrigation piping and has multiple drainage outlets to spread overflow over a larger surface onto the trays below.
