LATEST NEWS & INNOVATIONS FROM FYTOGREEN...
Fytogreen are committed to the latest innovations...
Fytogreen is at the cutting-edge in our field. We are passionate horticulturists, always learning and experimenting with new types of plants in all sorts of climatic conditions.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Under the leadership of Geoff Heard, Managing Director, Fytogreen has 30 years of horticultural industry experience and over 12 years delivering green roofs, green walls and vertical gardens.
Pictured are our test beds for green roofs, which are planted at varying degrees of roof pitch, and left untouched and unwatered.
Fytogreen establish numerous different test beds and green walls at the Fytogreen nursery. We carefully document and evaluate growth rates, water usage and survival rates in various conditions.
We do this to ensure we "speak from experience" when an architect asks us how a plant might perform.
From herbs and vegetables to flowering plants, the vertical garden poses on-going research and development challenges, whether it be indoor or outdoor gardens, floating gardens or water saving systems.
Fytogreen is totally committed to our research and development program to bring sustainable, innovative products to green the built environment.
Here is a link to a Podcast from The Site Shed showcasing gardens on the built structure. The discussion covers a range of points of greening the built structure, including types of gardening, what design considerations are needed and how they are installed and maintained. Also covered are regulations, environmental advantages and the practical advantages of having a roof garden, green facade or vertical garden on your home or office.
