The event will take place from March 7th through March 17th at Navy Pier. The show entrance will feature a 12 foot by 12 foot tropical vertical garden display created by LiveWall.

Whether you’re converting to energy saving light bulbs, driving gas efficient cars, or recycling more everyone seems to be looking to make their world a little greener these days. Now, one Spring Lake, Michigan based company has another innovative product available which will make a huge impact on the green movement throughout the nation. This new green wall product is called LiveWall.
“LiveWall provides a new option for adding the living beauty of greenery onto any building,” says Dave MacKenzie, president and founder of LiveWall. “With unequaled versatility, LiveWall can create green walls planted with annuals, perennials, succulents and tropical plants. We are excited about the unlimited possibilities.” This system can also be used to turn a plain wall into an herb or vegetable garden.
This innovative system which grows healthy plants is simple enough for do-it-yourself installations by homeowners or company employees. It can be custom designed to create unique wall installations on large commercial buildings or purchased as a smaller kit, with or without automatic irrigation. The company will also display LiveScreen, an American-made, mobile, fully assembled version of LiveWall that comes two-sided on wheels, fully assembled and ready to plant.
LiveWall is engineered to be attractive, simple to install on most walls, easy to maintain and change, and healthy for plants. The LiveWall system’s WallTer® planter modules slide into the revolutionary RainRail® mounting tracks, which secure them in place and include hidden conduits and built-in nozzles for integrated mist irrigation. The WallTer is manufactured using recycled architectural grade plastic, with a six inch depth by five inch wide structure that comes in 8-inch and 16-inch lengths. WallTer inserts may be preordered fully grown or planted from seed or plugs and are simply placed into the modules on site.
LiveWall® – A New Way To Grow Vertically
LiveWall® is the result of four years of research and development by the same team of horticultural scientists, landscape professionals, architects, roofing specialists and green building experts at Hortech® who created LiveRoof®, the green roof system proven successful in more than 800 installations. LiveWall, like LiveRoof, makes horticultural sense. It gives plants what they need in growing conditions like those found in the natural landscape.
“We developed LiveWall in much the same way we developed LiveRoof. After extensive evaluation of existing planted wall systems, we engineered LiveWall to surpass them,” says Dave MacKenzie, horticulturalist and president of Hortech, Spring Lake, Michigan
Designed with a healthy regard for plants, LiveWall® is a planted wall system that achieves simplicity and sustainability in harmony with nature. LiveWall is the result of four years of R&D by the professionals who created LiveRoof®. LiveWall supports plants as nature intended with the roots growing down, stems and leaves growing up. With unsurpassed versatility to grow a diversity of plant types, LiveWall transforms ordinary walls into inspiring vertical landscapes. LiveWall is simple, effective and attractive. The system’s WallTer® planter modules slide into the revolutionary RainRail® mounting tracks, which secure them in place and provide integrated mist irrigation. As with LiveRoof, licensed regional growers customize plant selection for every LiveWall project.
