Easy care green wall for a roof terrace garden in Highgate

Summer 2018 and Britain is in the throes of the longest, hottest summers on record. Lawns are brown, shrubs are shrivelling and the ground is so dry that it is cracking. On this roof terrace garden in Highgate, Northwest London, all is verdant, green and lush.

The owner has been away and there has been no watering or irrigation. How is this green wall looking so good? It’s because it’s been created using artificial green wall panels from Greenenvee.

Back in June 2018, Allessandro and Al, our top green wall installers, set to work transforming this space for our client. 30 of our Milan and Rome green wall panels were installed using the fittings supplied. Work was completed in remarkably quick time and Director Richard visited the site later to add extra plants at the clients request – he wanted to hide the drainpipe.
