In 2013, the first public vertical garden of Sweden was constructed on a pump house in the centre of the city of Helsingborg. The product of choice to adorn the building was a SemperGreenwall. Helsingborg is highly ambitious when it comes to finding solutions in the field of climate change. Moreover, the project is also used as an object of research to elevate the country’s knowledge of living walls to a higher level.
Flexible modular system
Mounted on an arched wall of a pump house, this SemperGreenwall covers an area of 32m2. The SemperGreenwall consists of a series of Flexipanels. This flexible modular system is highly suitable for use on arched surfaces. The wall features an irrigation system that closely monitors the quantity of water and amount of nutrients to be released. The result is a beautiful green living wall, all year round. A total of 21 different plant varieties have been used in the project, including various types of grass, fixed plants and ferns. The overgrowth includes garden plants as well as varieties that can be found in the Swedish countryside.
