What makes Fytogreen an Industry Leader? Fytogreen thrives by working collaboratively with our clients, architects, landscape architects and consultant project teams. Our experience informs us that best results are achieved by: • Developing a thorough understanding of the project including the overall vision for the site, any possible constraints the site may impose, and local ecology. • Providing dedicated end-to-end Project Management. • Maintaining an on-going process of information gathering and dissemination so that each team member is thoroughly informed. • Providing comprehensive and client focused solutions that meet requirements and often exceed expectations. • Committing to Project Maintenance to ensure the long-term sustainability of the gardens.


Our Nursery... Unless you have visited the Fytogreen’s head office, you may not be aware of the diverse infrastructure that is required to develop a truly sustainable specialist living-architecture operation. Based in Somerville, on the Mornington Peninsula, Fytogreen house one of the largest ‘green wall specific’ greenhouse’s in Australia; now with over 2,200m2 of greenhouses, with 1200m2 being heated. Fytogreen are well equipped to meet the ever-increasing demand for our innovative products.

Since establishment of the Somerville nursery in 2008, Fytogreen now utilize over 850 species within our planting palette. A considerable number of plants are being propagated internally in an effort to continually expand the researched and tested species available, allowing Fytogreen to enhance the biodiversity in our vertical gardens. This is a vital operation, as the general nursery industry does not yet support the specialist vertical garden industry, which has an ever-increasing requirement to use specialised species rather than general terrestrial (landscape) species. Fytogreen have always focused on the environment, our nursery will always have a sustainable focus; utilising water from our multiple dams on the property for our irrigation systems. Our research and development (R & D) extends to our dams with the successful species trial on our “Floating Garden” modules doubling up in it’s function of de-nutrification of the dam water and effective water cooling actions.


Fytogreen’s nursery also allows the R & D programme to develop, test and adapt innovative products for the industry ensuring sustainability is achievable on all the products we offer. . Fytogreen’s 7 bay greenhouse, also holds our Fytowall and Florafelt panels, ensuring that all our vertical garden panels receive professional nurturing when freshly planted. By pre-growing our modules, Fytogreen aids successful establishment, lowers plant loss and creates the ability to provide spectacular vertical gardens from the day that they are installed on site. Fytogreen also have a distinctive propagation area, allowing us to provide species that simply are not available in bulk anywhere else in Australia, providing Fytogreen with a unique advantage when supplying biodiversity to our green walls. Fytogreen also has a further 10,000m2 outdoor area available for the pre-growth of our green facade and planter range ensuring that Fytogreen remains the leader in this emerging market sector.

COMMITTED TO THE ADVANCED GREENING INNOVATIONS Fytogreen is at the cutting-edge in our field. We are passionate horticulturists, always learning and experimenting with new types of plants in all sorts of climatic conditions. RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT AT FYTOGREEN Fytogreen establish numerous different test beds and green walls at the Fytogreen nursery. We carefully document and evaluate growth rates, water usage and survival rates in various conditions. We do this to ensure we “speak from experience” when an architect asks us how a plant might perform. Fytogreen continue to lead the industry with innovative products, sustainability expertise and a down to earth approach. Under the leadership of Geoff Heard, Managing Director, Fytogreen has 30 years of horticultural industry experience and have been delivering green roofs, green walls and vertical gardens since 2002. We are proud to stand behind our product and with a 17 year proven track record in sustainable design, Fytogreen are the first choice in green walls, roof gardens, green facades and planter boxes. Fytogreen has always, and continues to be committed and evolve its ‘research & development’ department to ensure that we can provide innovative solutions to greening the built environment.

we listen . we plant . we evaluate . we evolve



Fytogreen pride itself on the ability to integrate successful gardens into built structures, and are proud to be Australia’s leader in building sustainable green walls. These plants live out their natural lifespan, and are not continually replanted with large quantities of fresh plants.

The maintenance of our unique installations require specialist plant-based knowledge and experience. This is specific Fytogreen technologies and is incomparable general garden or indoor plant maintenance. Maintaining Fytogreen gardens requires close consultation between the botanist and maintenance technicians. This ensures the diversity is preserved, whilst continuing to improve sustainability and plant specific integration, allowing for improved design and reduced maintenance input. The Fytogreen maintenance division is a group of passionate technicians, who regularly communicate to advance the divisions’ internal skill base, utilized techniques and materials to maintain Fytogreen’s extensive range of projects. 12

Fytogreen’s designers consider key components of site related variables such as light, wind and temperature to determine their plant species selections. Non-terrestrial (non typical garden species) are frequently chosen to offer highly adapted traits to maximize success on the vertical plane. Eg. The use of epiphytes and lithophytes species. Fytogreen’s garden systems require skilled technicians to remotely monitor irrigation, conduct standard on-site water quality checks, nutrient balancing, salt accumulation and pH management. Vertical gardens, roof gardens and green facades are water and air purifiers, and in many cases, providing valuable urban ecological, thermal and acoustic insulation benefits. Our specialized vertical garden systems are not merely gardens bolted to walls. They are highly specific ecosystems addressing a significantly diverse range of functionalities in support of architecture within our populated stressed urban climates.

YEARS OF RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT LEADS TO AWARD WINNING, SUSTAINABLE GARDEN DESIGNS Walls can become botanical gardens. Fytogreen’s vertical garden panel and pocket systems, which use our proprietary growing medium to deliver water and nutrients to specially selected plants, makes the living vertical environment a success. The complex process of species selection and placement has been honed by Fytogreen over many years to ensure the installed green walls are both successful and sustainable. The important considerations of testing sunshine hours through sun/shade modeling, light intensity, wind and the implication of the fractal factor on outdoor design. For indoor green walls, the importance of supplementary lighting and air exchange in the spaces are paramount. CONSULTANCY, DESIGN & CONSTRUCT For a large commercial project, design should ideally be considered approximately 18 months prior to construction. Fytogreen offers both a design consultancy service and a full design and construct service for vertical gardens. CONSTRUCT ONLY VERTICAL GARDENS

Fytogreen does undertake “construct only” projects. In instances where a garden has been designed or specified by the client’s Landscape Architect, and Fytogreen has won the tender via the traditional tendering process, Fytogreen offers advice as to whether specified species are suitable for integration into Fytogreen’s proprietary growing medium. When species specified have not previously been trialled by Fytogreen, we offer similar alternative species.

green facades 70

Green faรงades differ from vertical gardens by using climbing vines & creepers, planted in a lightweight and automated planter system with climbing trellis. The key benefits of planting a green facade is to reduce building A/C energy costs, and reflective light and heat. The installation process of a green facade requires minimal equipment access, reducing installation costs.

FYTOGREEN PROVIDES 3 MAIN FACADE SYSTEMS... Green Facades - Using web mesh, square mesh or cables to train climbing plants and shrubs to cover buildings and walls. This system is extremely cost effective and requires minimal equipment access.

Planter Boxes - Fytogreen offer a range of LLPD (Linear Low Density Polyethylene) and GRC (Glass Reinforced Concrete) planter boxes, that provide a flexible container for both green facades and planter boxes gardens. Offering a vast colour range and the ability to cut, adjust and re-weld, our planter box range can provide unique sizes to fit any orientation specified.


Pre-grown Green Facade Units - This unit overcomes the usual draw back with standard green facades, providing increased foliage cover at installation, instead of waiting up to 2-3 years. Our pre grown units are cost effective, significantly less prone to plant failure, independently certified for engineering suitability and have multiple attachment points; making placement safe and easy, reducing installation time.
