As an organic art form, plant walls connect us with nature, create harmonious home and work environments, and provide green spaces to urban sprawls. We construct living plant walls for customers who wish to bring natural beauty into their everyday spaces.
Instant Jungle has completed interior and exterior plant walls for both corporate and residential locales. Our plant wall services include design, planting, installation and maintenance. Each custom wall comes with the option for built-in irrigation. You have the choice to customize your own plant design, or allow our professionals to create one for you.
Whether you want a small area of your backyard or the entire side of an office building covered, we will work with you to create a beautiful one-of-a-kind plant wall.
Why live plant walls?
Which wall is right for you?
We are proud to work with Tournesol Siteworks to create the most durable and sustainable live plant walls available today. Below, you will find information on the different systems we work with to create gorgeous custom plant walls; the VGP, VGM and TerraScreen.
The VGM module is our go-to for commercial properties and succulent plant walls. The steel mounting rails can be connected to any structurally sound wall and the system is designed and tested to withstand extreme wind loads.
The recycled plastic modules are filled with Tournesol’s VGM3 Media Block, a lightweight growing media that allows plants optimum growth and stability. We recommend a grow-in period of 1 to 3 months to allow plant roots to become established within the system before on-site installation. Instant Jungle assembles, plants, stores and maintains systems so that they look their best before installation.
We highly recommend this system for succulents, but micro-conditions (temperature, sun, exposure, wind), desired maintenance schedule, soil profile and overall look of the wall should be considered before choosing plants.
We recommend this system for most interior plant wall installations because of how easy it is to design and maintain. The system allows 6” plants to remain in their nursery grow pots and be placed in the cachepots, rather than planted directly in the wall. This makes transplanting and plant maintenance a breeze.
Our favorite plant varieties for this wall are those that cover a large surface area such as pothos, spider plants, croton, ivy, marantas, philodendron, bromeliads, or tradescantia.
Recommended for residential and light commercial use, the VGP is the most versatile of plant wall systems available. Made of 100% post-consumer recycled plastic, the VGP trays can hold two 4” plants or one 1g plant and can be hung at 6” or 9” intervals. Trays can be hung with the VGP mounting panel, standard welded mesh wire or along rods or stainless steel rope. Walls look best upon arrival if planted one to two months before installation.
Our favorite plant varieties for this wall are those with full foliage or length such as ferns, pothos, marantas, liriope, tradescantia, spider plants and philodendron. This is also the best option for those seeking a plant wall to grow their kitchen herbs in.
When live plants are not an option we have a large selection of artificial plants available to create a gorgeous "plant" wall for you. Silk walls do best indoors, or in full shade.
We have a variety of foliage and succulents available, and can create any design. We have used the Tournesol VGM and TerraScreen systems for silk walls in the past, but we can create a custom silk wall in any frame of your choosing.
Silk walls are also available as rentals.
