Introducing LiveWall: New Planted Wall System Achieves Simplicity and Sustainability in Vertical Greening

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Hortech, Inc. announced the introduction of LiveWall®, the planted wall system that transforms ordinary walls into vertical green landscapes. LiveWall is the result of four years of research and development by the same team of horticultural scientists, landscape professionals, architects, roofing specialists and green building experts at Hortech who created LiveRoof®, the superior green roof system proven successful in more than 600 installations. LiveWall is engineered to be attractive, simple to install, easy to maintain and change, and healthy for plants. LiveWall provides a new option for schools, colleges and universities to green up their campuses.

“LiveRoof was not the first modular green roof system. We listened to our customers, heeded our horticultural instincts, and developed LiveRoof as a more advanced system that delivers higher value,” said Dave MacKenzie, horticulturalist and president of Hortech. “In the same way, after extensive evaluation of existing planted wall systems, we engineered LiveWall to surpass them. LiveWall supports healthy plant growth, is adaptable to various plant types and easily re-plantable, and delivers optimal aesthetic value and functionality.”
