Rosewood are experts in the irrigation of specialist living wall systems.

A green wall describes any situation where plants grow covering a vertical surface rather than horizontally on the ground. These have many benefits as well as being aesthetically pleasing.   In its most basic form a green wall doesn’t have to be man-made: it could be simply a climbing plant like ivy that self-attaches to a surface. However, these can overgrow, or cause structural problems, and a more modern solution is to create a ‘living wall’ system – a vertical garden that can make use of a much wider variety of plants since they don’t need to be climbers. These are engineered planting systems often consisting of modules fixed against a wall (planter boxes, or felt etc), which contain soil or other media for the plants to grow in. Incredible designs can be achieved and they can even be created indoors.  You can see some stunning examples below:

Living wall systems may require professional installation and maintenance and the cells containing the growing medium will certainly need to be connected to a drip irrigation system to ensure that water is evenly distributed across the full height and width of the wall. That’s where Rosewood comes in: one of our specialisms is irrigation systems designed especially for living walls. We can give you help and advice on what irrigation and computerised controllers are needed to maintain a living wall at its best, come up with a system to suit the challenging requirements of such a wall, and install the system for you so that you can relax and let the irrigation do the work.
