Living Wall Natural Screen

This Birmingham Michigan condo was looking for a way to screen the traffic from Woodward Avenue. They wanted to keep the buffer natural but have it grow to become thick enough to filter out the light and noise. Since the site was some what shady and they wanted year round screening. We installed Nigra (dark green) Arborvitae. The will grow to form a living wall that will look beautiful year round and thrive under the canopy of the large evergreens surrounded by the existing ground cover. Our crew was very careful to not disturb either during the installation. Landforms Inc.

It is a type of wild ginger. Some of it had to be cut back during the installation. It is extremely resilient. It can back within a few weeks. the light green looks great against the dark green of the Arborvitae. Thanks for your question.

Choose wild ginger (Asarum canadense) if you prefer thicker leaves and a lower habit. Plus, deer don’t like it, and pipevine swallowtails use it as a host plant. With a height of just 6 to 12 inches, and preferring a medium soil in shade, it is pretty easy to care for. It’s native from Minnesota to Mississippi and east. You might also consider wild geranium (Geranium maculatum) as an attractive and quick-spreading ground cover. It blooms anywhere from late spring to early summer and loves dry soil in full shade.Shown: Wild ginger (Asarum canadense)

Scegli zenzero selvatico ( Asarum canadense ) se si preferisce foglie spesse e un'abitudine più basso . Inoltre , cervi non piace , e swallowtails Pipevine usano come pianta ospite . Con un'altezza di soli 6 a 12 pollici , e preferendo un terreno di media in ombra , è abbastanza facile da curare . E ' nativo del Minnesota nel Mississippi e ad est .Si potrebbe anche prendere in considerazione geranio selvatico ( Geranium maculatum ) come copertura del terreno attraente e rapida diffusione . Fiorisce ovunque dalla tarda primavera all'inizio dell'estate e ama il terreno asciutto in piena ombra .
