The most customizable system to support a rich botanical tapestry of plants.
At the root of Habitat Horticulture’s flagship system is GrowTex®, a sustainably engineered geotextile providing a highly versatile foundation for growth.

It can be cut to any shape or size to fit within various architectural formats and the plants can be pre-grown on modular panels or installed individually onsite.

The GrowTex® system consists of two layers of non-woven geotextile made from recycled plastic water bottles and one layer of woven geotextile that’s highly moisture-retentive. Together they provide the optimum growing medium with an ideal ratio of moisture and air that does not degrade over time. GrowTex® can easily be planted and replanted for convenient maintenance.

Plant palette

The most celebrated feature of any living wall is the plants. Our approach to plant selection thoroughly examines the micro-climates, potential growth rates, and lighting conditions to ensure the right species is specified for the right spot on the wall. Foliage color, leaf texture, flowering times, and seasonal interest are all taken into consideration to create living compositions that highlight the unique qualities of each species while forming a visually impressive whole. To better acquaint the client with each species, we provide images, physical samples, and a plant palette page with a description of each plant.

Plant composition

Each and every living wall is thoughtfully designed to provide a unique multi-sensory experience and a sense of place that harmonizes with the architecture and natural surroundings. Habitat Horticulture’s design team works closely with our clients to create a composition that captures the inspiration of their initial vision. Once realized, various concepts and artistic renderings are presented to the client for review. From there, a planting elevation and plant schedule are submitted for approval and plant procurement begins.
