The intention around this design was for a green wall featuring dry prairie foliage. The plants chosen were mostly grasses in order to achieve the desired prairie look. The client also wanted the wall in the lobby of their apartment, making this a large-scale project.
In order to achieve the client’s vision in shape and visual expression, multiple prototype bundles of plants and grasses configurations were assembled for his review and approval. More than 150 bundles of plants were assembled. The wall mainly consisted of various grasses to maintain the dry look with a stunning color palette.
The design-build model of work, the prototype build configuration and the client’s art direction, allowed for a smooth, safe installation process that got the project finished efficiently.
The final result was a flawless installation and gorgeous green wall that matched the client’s vision he was looking for. The wall looked phenomenal and showed off that prairie look needed to articulate the client’s storyboard, art configuration and regional plant selection.
The idea was percolating for some time but it took awhile to find the right team – an enthusiastic team that was willing to try something new! It took a lot of back-and-forth but Plantscape worked hard to get this right, sourcing these materials during the pandemic had to have been a huge challenge but they made it seem effortless. They were overly communicative and allowed me to be as involved as I wanted to be throughout the process. Our client is over-the-moon and I couldn’t be happier.
