Turner Street Vertical Garden wins AILA award / by Simon Ellis

On June 14th 2019 Turner Street Vertical Garden Received an award form the Australian institute of Landscape Architects. The project demonstrates an affordable and low cost way to achieve vertical gardens with minimal maintenance. The project was entered after five years of growth, including the Summer of 2018-19 which was hotter and drier than any recorded summer in Melbourne. Even in these conditions and facing the equator (north in Melbourne) the plants survived, providing a green outlook and sun protection to the townhouse designed by The Rexroth Mannasmann Collective.
