Vertical Greening Ecology and Environmental Management

20 October 2016, Scatscape, Surbiton

Vertical GreeningThis event was well attended by both members and non-members, from student to fellow. We were first introduced to the theoretical concept and the Scotscape system before a presentation on case studies using different types of planting in a variety of locations. 

Maintenance and watering were discussed and we saw impressive walls using native plants, such as the vertical ‘meadow’ used as a backdrop for a Hyde Park concert and planting with strawberries for Wimbledon last year. The tour of the nursery and discussion in front of experimental vertical plantings was particularly inspiring.  Many thanks to our host Niall Mc Evoy.
