This past week Kat Harrold joined Ian Cooke of Monrovia and Mike Coraggio from EcoWalls for an ASLA green wall lecture series.  The trio gave an informative presentation on vital elements to consider from design phase to maintenance of green walls.

Ian charmed the audience with illuminating and entertaining descriptions of key specimens to utilize for climbing green walls.  He also provided a nice over view of different systems and materials to consider when selecting green wall support systems.

Kat provided detailed climbing green wall information from a case study of a recent project.  The case study discussed the evolution of the project from the architects concept drawings to plant selection and custom planter designs.  This project demonstrated how once can create an inexpensive and ecologically effective outdoor green wall on a LEED retrofit.

Mike finished up the presentation with beautiful creations that only he and the Imagineers of Disney could dream up.  Intensive green walls for both indoor and outdoor displays lit up the screen with a variety of themes and ornate designs showing the true aesthetic potential for this green medium.
