|Happy Holidays!||The Wright Gardner Inc., Takes home the 2014 Gold Award for it's Horticulture Service at 888 Brannan St.||Homestaging Helps Sell Properties|
One of our favorite projects of the Christmas season is the 455 Market St Lobby. Every year, our install complements their winter art show.
This year the exhibit was from San Francisco's Creativity Explored, and was pulled from their recent show called Shoerageous. Creativity Explored provides services for artists with developmental disabilities, and you can more information (and pick up some snazzy art shoes for a good cause) at creativityexplored.org.
|The Wright Gardner took over care of this 3 story, 1226 Sq ft GSky green wall with 7042 plants comprised of Philodendron cordatum, Neon pothos, Nepthytis white butterfly, Schefflera Luseane, and Philodendron Brazil. A team of 2 plant techs care for the wall weekly, and with monthly visits on a large lift.
Our lead exterior technician, Richard Millman is responsible for this massive wall. It takes a lot of work and time to keep the design intact and fresh.
A typical workday on a plant wall includes trimming back the overgrown plants and pinching off new growth to keep the integrity of the design, running and checking the irrigation system, monitoring for pests and feeding the existing plants. Great job, Rich!
|Everyone agrees that a well maintained lawn and colorful plantings provide curb appeal and helps to sell houses. Now real estate agents are finding that creating a home out of a property also increases the homes value and interest. Fresh plants and flowers can add visual focal points to a large room while also helping to fill empty spaces. They also add life; people respond better to a space with plants than one without.
