Installation Overview

Installation procedures
  • Step 1

    Install the tanks to the wall. Optionally connect the master tank to the water supply and overflow drain. The master tank and expansion tanks are joined using simple pipe connectors, supplied in the kit.

  • Step 2

    Install waterproof plastic sheeting as a splash protector.

  • Step 3

    Install the mounting rails, using the tanks to manage spacing.

  • Step 4

    Install irrigation kit and optional remote monitoring system. Drippers are inserted into the tops of the highest tier of pots. Water passes through the pots via gravity, collecting in the base tanks to be reused.

  • Step 5

    Pre-plant all pots off-site at the nursery, as per the intended landscaping design. First, insert each plant into a bag, then tie each bag into a pot.

  • Step 6

    Lastly, clip the pots onto the mounting rails so they nest into a honeycomb matrix, giving you an instant final effect.

Maintenance

Our system is soil-based, which substantially reduces maintenance compared to the common hydroponic vertical garden. Soil can store water for a longer period of time, ensuring the longevity of the plants should there be any system failures. The used water is also collected in the tanks and redistributed throughout the garden. Furthermore, the pot and tank components of our system are made from recycled material.

Automated irrigation improves sustainability and reduces maintenance while remote monitoring systems reduce maintenance costs and risks.
