Our NZ designed and made Planter Gardens are ideal for creating semi-transparent screens both indoors as well as outdoors.

This system is a light weight method of installing vertical gardens where no penetration of substrates is permitted and where semi-transparent vertical gardens and space dividers are required.

The planter boxes are made from powder-coated aluminium and contain the plants in their felt pockets.

The framing is made from stainless steel and designed to hold the automatic irrigation system to drip feed the plants. The modules have a drip tray at the base and can be powder-coated to any colour. If necessary, the modules are secured to structural elements of the building for stability.

Standard Sizes

The Planter Gardens have planter boxes 500mm wide, 200mm high and 180mm deep, which is perfect for three plants.

The modules come in sizes 1m and 1.5m by 2.6m high and can be linked to form larger gardens.

Drip trays are 350mm deep

Planter Gardens can be designed to fit any dimensions and can be powder-coated to any colour.

Installation Details

The light weight Planter Gardens are delivered to site without plants and are quick and easy to install.

All plants are delivered to site, pre-planted in their felt pockets. Installation of the plants is in accordance with a Planting Plan.  Automatic irrigation is pre-assembled and requires a standard connection to a mains water supply.

Site measurement is generally undertaken prior to manufacture.  Any wall penetration and fixing detail is  designed according to substrate, building design and engineering requirements.

Plants

We work with a wide range of high quality plant suppliers around New Zealand and locally sourced, sustainable, New Zealand native plants as well as exotic plants, indoor plants and edible plants can be provided.

The plants are delivered to site pre-planted into our unique botanical felt pockets.

These removable felt pockets increase moisture retention and aeration of the roots and aid plant health.

Ongoing maintenance allows for pockets to simply and quickly be swapped about.

Irrigation

 The irrigation systems are designed for the site and environment and can be connected to a rainwater collection system and/or main supply.

A typical installation will use :-

  • a 20mm tap with mains water pressure of  between 2-5 bar
  • a battery or electrical controller with single or multiple zones
  • 13 mm vertical feeder pipes and 4 mm horizontal feeder pipes
  • pressure compensating drippers or spray irrigation
  • Rainwater collection and storage

Drip feeding is water conserving and delivers low operating costs, easy maintenance and water management benefits.
