Green Wall Designer
It has been scientifically proven that artificial plants that are lifelike and faithful to their natural counterparts can have the same soothing effect on people that real plants do. For some, a relaxing environment can make all the difference and put a smile on your face.
This installation at a care home in the heart of Devon encapsulates so many of the things that Vistafolia® is proud to offer – affordable transformative products, innovative design solutions and striking results. The green wall, installed as part of a design by McGregor Smith Landscape Architects, adds a beautifully realistic feature to an otherwise uninspiring brick space.
And while plants can have a soothing effect on those around them, it is a give and take relationship, especially where real green walls are concerned: lack of sunlight can be prohibitive to growth and ongoing maintenance can prove to be laborious. Step forward Vistafolia®, with a maintenance free solution that gives all the beauty of a green wall, without the hassle.
For this project, the panels couldn’t be directly installed directly on to the brickwork, but our technical department were able to advise on a specification for a purpose-built, free-standing metal planter frame to house the artificial green panels, with a lovely cedar panel finish. This lightweight build allowed for an effortless install of the panels, with a great looking, low-maintenance solution that doesn’t interfere with the structure of the building. And because the panels are so easy to install, the whole installation was completed in one day.
To ensure a bold, textured finish, our lush green Texture Boxes were utilized, adding extra ferns and grasses to the wall for extra depth. The stunning finish left the client with a great visual centerpiece for the residents to enjoy, without the burden of it requiring constant attention to keep it looking fantastic.
