They provided us with a few options and suggested the best one that works for our green wall. Our irrigation system and the lighting improved and is more effective in keeping the plants alive. This addressed both our client handover and lighting cost issue. Vertical Green was able to offer us a cheaper lighting option plus installation compared to other suppliers. They have the integrity to not overcharge when their client doesn’t know anything about plants, it was really unexpected. Overall, the whole process was smooth.

“The initial problem we face with our green wall was that it’s not growing nor healthy despite the system working properly. I was trying my best to find the best supplier to help me salvage the green wall, because our clients refuse to takeover the project with dying plants. They (VG) responded promptly to me and is knowledgeable enough to advise me—I desperately needed the help, thankfully Madhu replied to me quickly and promised to expedite the process immediately."

Echelon features sky gardens on levels 13 & 28 with vertical green gardens up to 10 metres highIn mid-2019, Echelon engaged VG for our maintenance service, the state of the green wall (Non-VG green wall system) was no longer in good condition 3 years after completion.

After assessing the site condition and the green wall system, we identified several factors that were restricting the green wall to thrive. Some of the factors were insufficient lighting & overwatering.

When the plants do not receive enough light, the plant’s stem becomes more lengthy in attempts to reach for light and leaves grows further apart, which creates an undesirable appearance – bare & scarce. Over-irrigation can cause the plant to “drown” as the plant’s roots are unable to receive enough oxygen to “breathe”. Plant’s roots will start to die and lose its vigour.

We re-introduced more suitable plants for the site’s condition, changed the irrigation system & added growth lights to tackle specific areas that do not receive sufficient light.

Today, our dedicated team of gardeners, Jassim (left) & Rabi (right), does maintenance for Echelon’s green walls a few days each month.
