Different Types Of Green Wall Systems

Project Approach

Our approach to the project is outlined below:

Initial Consultation

During the initial consultation, we will review the project criteria, timelines, scope, budget, and other relevant details.

Design Phase

In this phase, we will select an appropriate system that aligns with the budget and design intent. We will determine the plant pallet, design, irrigation method, and supplemental lighting requirements.

Pre-Installation Planning

Our team will create shop drawings, take field measurements, review MEP documents, and study technical specifications. We will also source or contract grow plants that meet project specifications.


Hardware will be delivered to the site and supporting structures will be configured, including backers, membranes, and irrigation controls. We will test the system for function, leaks, and stability.


We understand that every green wall project requires ongoing plant maintenance, and Natura provides this service for you.
