This project at University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH, called for a complete renovation of an existing live plant wall that was in very poor condition.
The main problem with this wall was that the wrong plants were chosen for the type of environment the wall was located in.
We began by removing all the existing plants and replacing them with both jade and neon pothos plants, which tolerate lower light levels as well as the dense, competitive environment that exists for the plants in a living wall.
Plants in a live green wall are always competing for light and space, so it’s important to choose the right species that will thrive in these conditions.
This wall was massive, close to 18 feet long and about 8 feet high!
The finished wall is a dense hedge of thriving plants. We’ll keep it looking this way with regular maintenance and replace any plants that need it over time.
