Vertical gardens growing on basalt fiber require minimum maintenance and are custom-designed following the customer’s desire and requests.    

During the international conference and expo Greenbuild 2018 held in Chicago, Sagegreenlife showcased several living wall systems called the Duet Living Partition, developed in collaboration with Gensler.

To grow plants, they use a patented hydroponic system based on stone wool substrate. Plants are seeded directly into Biotiles®, made of basalt fiber, and then laid down into the living wall frame.

This substrate is not subject to decay and rotting. It is resistant to mold and has antibacterial properties. Once its life ends, stone wool substrate can be completely recycled.

The specific feature of modular walls is their two-side construction, so the plants can be planted on both sides or just on one side with the other turned into, for example, a writing board.

The living wall is irrigated by a drip system, which can be self-contained, re-circulating irrigation system or connected to the house water supply. Each vertical green “flower bed” is custom-designed to fit into virtually any space and configuration considering its climate and conditions.
