Living Wall Design, Installation & Maintenance


Cityscapes’ living walls are self-contained vertical gardens of plants installed into a metal framework and mounted to an existing wall.  We choose plant varieties based on the available natural and artificial light levels and design the layout to complement the existing or proposed space. Grow lights mounted above the walls in low-light spaces allow us to install these plants where there is limited natural light exposure.


Prior to installation, plants are treated for fungus gnats and other pests. We also acclimate the plants to the light levels in which they will be permanently located whenever possible. Then we provide construction drawings of the walls and work with architects, project managers, and property managers before our in-house installation crew mounts the wall.


Our Boston area walls are maintained by Cityscapes’ horticulturalists, who handle any necessary pruning and watering or irrigation adjustments. Walls can be watered by hand or use automated irrigation and drainage systems. Our horticulturalists  are trained to respond to plants reacting to the ambient temperature and light level variations that occur over the course of the year.

If you are interested in installing a living wall in your space, contact one of our design executives and we will get back to you within 24 hours.
