Atlantis Aurora – Vertical Garden Installation

Food court & children’s playground enjoy a beautiful vertical garden green wall at a busy highway petrol gas station.

A new petrol gas station development in Kempsey NSW was looking to add vegetation to the premises. The busy petrol gas station is frequented by thousands of customers per day and features a food court and children’s playground. The installation of the vertical garden green wall into the food court enhances the aesthetics of the station and is a relaxing site for highway travellers enjoying a break on their journey. The vertical garden green wall extends from the interior to the exterior children’s playground area providing a lush green backdrop.

Gro-Wall® 4.5 Technology

The system selected for the Greenwood is the Atlantis Gro-Wall® 4.5 vertical garden system. This system provides 6.5 litres capacity of growing media for each plant. The system used specially designed growing media developed by our horticulturist that provides the system with a robust low maintenance and long term vertical garden installation. The Gro-Wall® 4.5 also provides the watering of each individual plant and the planter trays provides built in water reservoir and drainage that only removes excess water.

  • Large Capacity, Each Planter tray is 6.5 Litre capacity

  • Modular, Easy vertical and horizontal expansion

  • Minimal Maintenance

  • Individual Plant Irrigation

Easy Installation

The installation was a methodical affair, commencing with the assembly of the Gro-Wall® 4.5 modules and the planting of the plants into the planter trays. The assembled modules were attached to the prepared wall and fixed into position. Then the irrigation lines were installed into each row and connected to the main water inlet lines.

The installation was easy and straight forward. The Gro-Wall® is a robust structure and the plants are easily accessible. The planter trays when inserted are securely locked in place. The large volume for the growing media is a plus especially for long term plant growth.

Next a drainage tray was installed at the base which fed into a drainage outlet. The irrigation system was test run to ensure all was working as intended. Then the cladding was installed on the sides of the vertical garden. Finally the plants were installed into their positions.
