Welcome to The Green Wall & Green Roof Source
Melissa Daniels and Anthony Caggiano re-invented Plant Connection when they recognized a growing market for green wall plants.
"We feel it’s vital that we create a new paradigm where systems like ours can help bring nature back to cities and make living architecture an integral part of our everyday lives, no matter where you live or how much space you have.”
On September 28, 2012, a more than two thousand square-foot exterior G-O2TM Living Wall was unveiled on the building façade of One East Pratt Street in Baltimore, making it the largest living wall in Maryland.
The G-O2TM Living Wall has some important features that will help advance the success of living architecture, including the use of a unique, cutting edge, remote monitoring system. This technology was first installed in another very large iconic living wall in Pittsburgh during a complete overhaul in May of 2012 that included an upgraded G-O2TM Living Wall system, irrigation system, and state-of-the-art remote monitoring sensors provided by Plant Connection, Inc.
This valuable data recorded in two of the largest exterior living walls in the United States will be studied and used to help inform and further advance the greater green wall industry as a whole.
One block from the Freedom Tower, Plant Connection installed a 32' x 60' interior G-O2TM green living wall. Plant Connection's green wall designer, Sabrina Buttitta, BSLA, designed an “organic tapestry” of plants to balance the magnitude of the 23-story corporate atrium.
The 1,920 SF living wall is home to 11,673 plants and contains a 12-zone irrigation system with a remote monitoring system to optimize the health of the plants. Plant Connection's president, Anthony Caggiano, and vice president, Melissa Daniels, work closely consulting the maintenance company, and at any minute, know the status of the wall's health.
Studies have shown that buildings strategically placing and promoting access to vegetation have been documented as having a greater positive human health impact than those without. The living wall adds to the list of metropolitan areas with green walls that are greatly impacting the urban landscape.
St. James Ave. is now the home of a new plaza located in Boston’s historic Back Bay. Aside from a custom-designed water feature, lush plantings, stone seat cubes, and distinctive lighting, the site also boasts multi-dimensional G-O2TM Living Walls that draw you into the space.
The offices within the buildings surrounding the plaza all have views onto the St. James Garden. Therefore, the park had to be attractive from above. Green roof panels were incorporated on top of the living walls to provide a solid green, visually appealing view to look great from above.
One block long and with very limited space and light, an extraordinary 12' high, 200' long G-O2TM living wall of evergreen plant material has become a major contributor to the rebranding and place-making of Gracie Mews.
Residents now have gained a sense of place upon entering the building, as opposed to an uneventful corridor. The simple, crisp modernist approach to the monoculture planting has brought clarity and sophistication to this new entrance experience.
