203 planter boxes were pre-grown at Fytogreen’s nursery facility in Somerville for 9 months. The planting pallet comprised of 5 species with the aspect facing west and north.

A specially designed planter utilizing LLDPE Rotomould technology for long term sustainability to act as both a crash and fall protection barrier was designed with forklift slipper slots.

Pre-growth, V24 mesh from Tensile fitted to a powder coated frame, enable good plant establishment. A pre-growth period of 12 months or more would of been ideal to deliver the planters with their starter mesh panel at full coverage for all species.

This will be an iconic green facade for Melbourne and is spectacular in early summer when in full flower
