Cityscapes Living Walls were Selected as One of Boston’s Most Innovative Products!

 

From November 17th -19th, 2010 Cityscapes Living Walls were on display at the Seaport World Trade Center for Build Boston’s 1st Annual Innovation Pavilion.  Our Living walls were chosen as one of Boston’s most cutting edge innovative building products.  Each of the products that were selected have only been in the market for 3 years or less. Build Boston is the Northeast’s largest regional convention and tradeshow for engineers, architects, contractors, interior designers, and other industry professionals with an annual 15,000 attendees each year. Below are some images of our living walls that were on display at the event.

Cityscapes Lends a Hand to Cambridgeport School to Plant an Edible Living Wall!

 

September 28th, 2010 – Janice Goodman helped teach students from Cambridgeport School in Cambridge, MA how to plant a 7 foot Edible Living Wall.  The children used swiss chard, peppers, cabbages and rosemary as their choices for the edible plants for the wall.  Cityscapes loaned the 7 foot frame to the school for a week so they could use it to display at the CitySprouts School Garden Celebration at the Tobin School this past Saturday.  Please read the article from Cambridge Day by Monica Velgos and click on the posted article links below for more information and some images from the event.

Living Walls Have Arrived in Boston to Celebrate Earth Day!

To celebrate the 40th Birthday of Earth Day, Cityscapes provided Boston Properties with a state of the art, stainless steel, vertical Living Wall.  It was showcased in the Center Court of the Boston Prudential Center from April 12th through April 22nd.

Cityscapes Inc teamed up with EZ Care Technologies of Saugus, MA to create this stunning living wall using EZ Care’s unique labor saving Water Grip Growing Media which increases plant stability and water retention. 

Green Walls Have Arrived in Boston!!
