Our clients are consistently saying:  “LiveWall just makes sense.”  Business owners and individuals that have previously been hesitant to buy, design or install green wall systems are now moving forward with living wall plans that include LiveWall products.

The road to simplicity and proper function was a long one, taking four years of research, development and trialing.  The end result is a system that is designed in the best interest of the plants, offering them an environment and orientation that parallels nature.

Grand Pines Herb Wall

Scott Reenders enjoys the fresh herbs on the wall at Grand Pines Assisted Living Center.

The first commercial LiveWall installation was successfully installed in April 2012 at the Grand Pines Assisted Living Center in Grand Haven, MI. The wall is planted with edibles which will be harvested and used throughout the growing season.

Chef Aaron Shapiro is looking forward to using the fresh herbs in his cooking for the residents of the assisted living center.  He intends to harvest and dry the herbs that he doesn’t use during the growing season to complement his cooking in the winter months.

Introducing LiveWall, LiveScreen and LiveFence

LiveWall is the first and only planted wall system with patent pending TopSide® and RainRail® Technology for growing plants vertically in a manner that is healthy, simple, attractive, and low maintenance.  LiveFence® and LiveScreen® are the fencing and mobile screening applications of the same technology.

Brought to you by the makers of the LiveRoof® hybrid green roof system, LiveWall® was borne of necessity, as a solution-focused product requested by architectural and building professionals. The challenge was to create the ideal green living wall solution, addressing the key issues of architectural design, engineering, and horticulture; essentially marrying the best of aesthetics, physical and functional attributes, and the biological environment for the plant material.

Such a system, now called the LiveWall® system, had to meet all of the following criteria:

  • Suitable for a broad range of plants; sun and shade loving perennials, annuals,
  • vegetables, herbs, medicinal and tropical plants.
  • Sustainable; grows healthy plants with very low maintenance.
  • Easily planted and replanted.
  • Pre-vegetated and instantly mature for virtually guaranteed success.
  • Unrestricted design creativity.
  • No soil erosion.
  • Effective in all climates, and for indoor applications.
  • Attractive even during the dormant season.
  • Easy to design.
  • Easy to install.
  • Easy to water and fertilize.
  • Optimum LEED points.


LiveWall is logical. It parallels nature. LiveWall is simple, effective, and attractive.

We greatly look forward to helping you with your next project.
