Green Wall Systems - Specs
Design Resources

Green living walls are an emerging architectural design feature in the urban built environment.

With horizontal space at a premium, we have taken plants up the walls to bring the benefits of nature to commercial environments, both inside and out.

Green Wall Systems | Specification Brief

This mini-guide is intended for architects and design professionals as an overview of systems, applications, critical considerations and project approach.


Panel Systems

Panel Systems are a robust and intensive green wall system that incorporate planting media and irrigation systems into modular panels or tiles. The grow medium can range from soil, soil-less aggregates, rockwool, foam or synthetic fabrics.

Tray Systems

Tray Systems are designed to mount directly to a wall and displays plant material in their nursery grow pots. These systems are the most commonly specified due to their relative ease of installation and flexibility of design configurations to fit any space. Instant appeal is obtained with no pre-planting required at the nursery and ease of seasonal design swaps are possible with the plants not being directly planted into the systems growing media.


These systems are ideal for leased space or floor plans that change over time. They can be placed against a wall or in the middle a room to create partitions and privacy barriers.

Cassette Systems

Cassette Systems are as easy to install as framed artwork and hangs on your wall just like a painting. Living Art or Live Pictures are flexible and functional and available in a variety of sizes and finishes. Interchangeable cassettes hold 4″ plants and snap in and out of the frame for easy maintenance or plant variety swaps. The water reservoirs concealed behind the frame hold a 4 to 6 week supply of water and incorporates a wicking system for easy maintenance.

Moss Wall Preserved Artwork
Design Resources

Moss Walls are a cost-effective approach to incorporating natural design elements into your workplace.

Moss art installations can be placed just about anywhere with little to no maintenance and can be customized to any scale and color incorporating signage and brand logos.

Natural Reindeer Moss

Reindeer Moss grows abundantly in vast Scandinavian forests and is harvested by hand in a way that ensures perfect renewal of the plant. The moss is preserved naturally and is 100% biodegradable and fire retardant. Reindeer Moss is a very efficient acoustic modulator, making it the perfect biophilic design element in public places and office spaces.

Light Stone & Sustainable Bark

Light Stone Panels are made from a combination of natural stone and resin creating a material that is lighter and more manageable than real stone. We offer these naturally attractive panels in two finishes to compliment any interior: Prairie Brown and Mountain Grey.

Our Yellow Poplar tree bark originates from the Appalachian Hardwood Region of the U.S. This Poplar wood is used for furniture production but the bark has limited practical uses. BioMontage helps prevent the bark from becoming waste and has excellent acoustical properties.

Moss Walls

Moss Walls require little on-going attention reducing service maintenance costs. Unlike live plants that must have suitable environmental conditions and regular care by a professional horticulturist—these works of art will retain their natural appearance and color year over year.

BioMontage Moss Art

This nature-derived art collection consists of preserved natural materials that require no maintenance and offer a substantial benefit to your workspace. It utilizes lightweight, fire-resistant frames to mount biophilic materials to walls or room dividers. The two-part, snap on/off frame design enables quick interchange of panel inserts.
