Alex is the official distributor of the Treebox Green Walling System for the Northwest, Northeast and Midlands. Over the last few years she has collaborated with the company on numerous occasions and gained much experience with the system, finding it to be easy to install and of very high quality.
Living walls are a relatively new phenomena but until recently were only really available commercially due to the awkward nature and high expense of the early modular systems. Over the last 5 or so years, new more practical and easy to use systems have come to the market. This, combined with the visual, environmental and health benefits of creating green walls makes them a highly desirable addition to any garden and essential if you have a small, urban outdoor space.
Product overview Treebox are a London based company who are leading the way with the latest Green Wall Technology and have had huge success with living walls nationwide. They offer an array of versatile products to create lush, living walls with and are available for residential or commercial projects. The system comes in panel form and each one has a series of deep troughs that allow for the use of larger more instant plants and for increased longevity of wall. Irrigation is provided and can (for small walls) be linked to a water butt/reservoir or (for larger walls) to a water supply and timer. Good news for those in areas prone to hosepipe bans: Green wall irrigation is exempt from any bans. Treebox Green Walling systems are made from 80% recycled materials and 100% recyclable meaning they are also kind to the environment.
