New green wall – by Alex Langhoff

To conclude the green roof class we got to prepare for the new and improved green wall. This green wall is made up of different modules that fit together and make up a wall. This module construction makes life easier when plants need tending to, when soil needs to be changed, and checking irrigation.

The new green wall allows us to be able to change the ways the wall is arranged. This can be beneficial when there is a certain area of the wall that is doing better or worse than another section of modules.

The construction of the wall started off with drilling holes into the concrete wall. We then attached the mounting rails to the wall with the given screws and bolts. We chose to use a vertical format instead of horizontal for convenience of taking down the modules. We continued installing the wall mounts and measuring out the distance of the modules between each new vertical railing.
