Australian Grasses Vertical Garden

Fytogreen designers created a huggable vertical garden for the Glen Iris Cricket Club in Melbourne, Australia using Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters.


Featured on Green Roofs Australia this grassy masterpiece features native plants that could best survive the rugged conditions here while also looking smart with the modern architecture if flanks.

This small yet impressive vertical garden and living roof has a plant design incorporating native species only and extends the reserve parkland area onto the building. Both the roof garden and green wall are irrigated by rainfall collected from the building roof and stored in a nearby rainwater tank.

The vertical garden uses lush thick foliage for this pallet of plants making it resilient to a range of conditions while requiring minimal maintenance. Fytogreen’s botanist selected 10 different species and used 200 plants to cover the area of the northeast facing wall.
