Green walls and roof gardens
Project completed by Junglefy in 2007.
The offices of Fujitsu in the Melbourne Docklands area is one of Australia’s first 6 star rated sustainable buildings including a monoculture of Mondo grass as a green wall.
The walls are made up of a series of modules that are pre- grown off site to ensure the plants establish successfully and then moved into place when required. The modules are grown outside or inside under metal halide grow lamps depending on the final requirements.
In order for Greenrooms/Junglefy to offset their carbon production the electricity used is sourced from a 100% renewable source through Energy Australia.
Junglefy looked to Alpine Nurseries for supply of a large number of hard to source and unusual plant varieties in small sizes at very short notice.
Alpine also worked to offer lists of suitable plants available in the market for future walls. Alpine has also aided in plant recognition on existing walls that are now being looked after by Junglefy.
Junglefy would gladly recommend Alpine Nurseries to any Landscape Contractor looking for a prompt and easy-going plant supplier:
Alpine treats all orders with great care whether big or small and are quick to adapt to our ever changing needs.
They provide the most helpful and friendly service and we have never had to look for an alternative supplier.
