Deep Green has been pioneering vertical garden systems for specific application in Western Australia, with specialised lightweight growing media, automated direct reticulation methods and a palette of species specifically selected to be hardy, adaptable and aesthetically pleasing.
Our DG - 40LWP lightweight panel vertical garden system is an adaptable and high-performing vertical garden system ideal for confined spaces or surfaces with a limited weight loading. At just 40mm thick before being filled with media and plants, this highly versatile system can be fitted in the narrowest of spaces, yet with its specialist water retention fibre and planting pockets it is still capable of supporting lush vegetation growth.
Our DG - 140M modular vertical garden system is a robust and effective solution for providing vertical greening. Specially engineered to be capable of being planted on all sides, and featuring a unique water retention fibre, our systems are suitable for supporting lush vegetation growth with some of the lowest water requirements on the market.
Benefits of Vertical GardensTemperature - reduced ambient air temperature and load on air conditioning
Surface Area - increased available planting area, such as on fences and walls
Air Quality - absorbs dust, particulates and pollution, naturally filtering the air
Beautification - aesthetically pleasing views and microclimate near garden
Biodiversity - increased biodiversity values and micro habitat creation
The Biophilic ConnectionRecent research is proving that exposure to nature is innately healthy for people.
A landmark study by Kaplan & Kaplan found that patients recovered faster when able to view greenery from their hospital bed. Further studies are finding evidence for increased employee productivity and wellbeing when workers are kept in touch with nature. With our congested and highly developed urban centres it is becoming harder to introduce new areas of vegetation, but now with vertical gardens previously inert concrete walls can become havens for biodiversity - whilst lowering ambient air temperatures, absorbing pollution and dust particles and becoming aesthetic features in their own right. Further studies have shown how property values can be increased by providing views over vertical gardens versus blank concrete facades.
Irrigation & FertigationWater and nutrient management are critical in ensuring a successful and cost effective vertical greening system. Water management is one of the biggest challenges in vertical greening, especially in Western Australia’s harsh climate. The specialist water retention fibre and drip irrigation water supply in our vertical garden systems make them one of the most efficient on the market. To ensure plants are healthy throughout the lifetime of the system, it is necessary to provide some form
of fertilisation, as the natural processes of litter accumulation and nutrient breakdown are not present. Our discreet and effective fertigation units are fitted directly into the reticulation system and provide appropriate nutrients directly into the plants root zone, providing optimal establishment and development with minimal intervention.
