Our guest speaker is Mark Paul, Horticulturist and Founder of The Greenwall Company. Mark is a very experienced speaker who has spoken on greenwalls to many groups in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and North and South America. During his talk, he will share his expertise with us on the design, construction and choice of plants suitable for greenwalls.
Mark created what is believed to be the very first greenwall in Australia over 30 years ago. His company is involved in greenwall design and construction, in a wide range of residential, commercial and public works.
In a recent media release, Mark stated “We have been working tirelessly on creating new forms of eco-friendly greenwalls for all types of spaces, including new designs for high-rise buildings. Not only do greenwalls look fantastic on the exteriors of the buildings, but they truly transform the aesthetics and atmosphere of the street, and surrounding areas, not to mention the health benefits.
