Vertical Lawn/Meadow

The Christchurch festival of Flowers commissioned several new installations this year.

One was this fantastic Vertical lawn/meadow.

Once the research and Development was complete special fabric was coated with grass seed and wild flower seed and grown in a greenhouse.

A large vertical scaffold was constructed and at the beginning of the Festival the Vertical Lawn installed. In typical Kiwi Fashion a lawn mower was added to the installation. 

The building in the background is the famous Canterbury Museum.







The pictures tell the story well.


Thanks for all the Comments
