This photo shows an installation at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. Designer James Dawson is flexing his green muscles in the varied plantings found here: vertical green, green roof and hanging plants. The shagginess of the Giant Liriope green wall anchors the space.
This living wall clearly expresses the depth required for the soil — what looks to be about six inches — in the way the U-shaped configuration of panels is expressed in front of the corrugated siding. Generally the panels that are used for living walls feature smaller trays with angled openings that give the plantings some verticality. To to put it another way, the plants don't cantilever horizontally from the panel, they reach up and out from the angled trays. Here, the wrapping of the window is a nice touch.
Here a grid of green squares flank a set of double doors, framing the entryway. As one person commented, they look like large shutters that have opened from the doors.
Here we see a wood trellis with colorful plants climbing them from large planters placed below. Some of the plants are making their way to the roof joists. Eventually plants will cover the walls between the windows and doors.
