This hotel courtyard has been transformed into a sheltered green oasis using Elmich VGM 150 greenwall system. The thousands of plants used to create the walls insulate the courtyard from the sounds of the nearby city, keeping the location peaceful.
VGM Green Wall is comprised of vertical modules assembled from high strength lightweight structural panels, incorporating interlocking snap-on clips for easy assembly. The front panel has a unique grid to facilitate planting of up to sixteen plants per module.
VGM contain a geotextile liner into which is placed a suitable planting mix. The modules are preplanted in a nursery environment to allow proper establishment to occur before installation on site.
VGM are either mechanically fastened on walls using steel bolts or inserted into free standing steel support racking structures.
VGM installations include drip irrigation systems that are positioned at appropriate intervals, depending on wall heights. Collection trays may be positioned, at ground level to allow overflow water to be discharged or recycled.
