07 Oct GSky’s Living Green Walls are Ideal for Parking Garage Installation
Innovative living green wall design improves aesthetics and environmental impact
Delray Beach, FL – GSky Plant Systems, Inc., a global industry leader in the design and production of interior and exterior green walls, highlights that its exterior living green walls are ideally suited to installation on parking garage façades.
Parking structures are a crucial component of community planning that reduce congestion on city streets and improve access to retail, offices, residences, and other buildings. Living green walls can dramatically improve the aesthetics of parking structures, introducing beautiful living vegetation into the urban landscape. Green walls serve to reduce air pollution and dampen sound, thus improving quality of life around the garage buildings. GSky’s Director of Artistic Horticulture Design Debbie Kotalic explains, “A GSky® living green wall is a way of calming the concrete jungle.”
GSky’s exterior Pro Wall® is ideal for high design in very visible areas, such as retail developments, office complexes, and more. Featuring custom panels, this highly robust product can make a huge visual impact. With climate in mind, GSky’s experts can help create stunning visual designs on large parking garage façades with the Pro Wall® product.
The Versa Wall® XT allows for thriving living green walls in colder climates than the Pro Wall®, with moderate designability. GSky’s Versa Wall® XT uses 1-gallon potted plants and a proprietary, patented system that makes it the industry’s easiest to install and maintain. Versa Wall® XT installations were designed to reduce wait time for plant growth, thus simplifying the process of improving environmental impact and meeting regulatory needs for new and existing parking structures.
Finally, GSky’s Basic Wall® screening is the company’s most cost-effective option with all the environmental benefits of a living green wall. Especially suited to projects reaching particularly tall heights, the Basic Wall screening utilizes 7-gallon potted plants. It is gaining particular popularity in cities and towns that require vegetation on buildings, as it simplifies the process of adding living plants to new and existing buildings.
