Green Wall Project Case Study

Antz Plants were approached by a company based in Brisbane who specialise in green-wall design and installation. As it was the ‘busy season’ for our industry, this company was looking to find a nursery who was capable of potting and supplying plants for the wall. When approached, the team at Antz had very limited experience in potting and handling green-wall plants and potting media. After some thorough research and engaging with those familiar to the industry, we commenced a grow on program. 4 months later, Antz Plants supplied 5 thousand plants for one of the largest out-door green-walls in Queensland.

What the client needed

  • Plants that were suitable for growing on a green-wall.
  • Hardy plants that were capable of full sun exposure.
  • Large quantities of each plant species.
  • Availability of stock within 4 months of placing the order.
  • Plants to be potted into suitable green-wall media.
  • Client’s plant schedule included some varieties we were not familiar with.
  • Stock required in green-wall pots.

What challenges the project presented

  • Working to a building contractors time constraint.
  • Unfamiliar with handling green-wall pots and potting media.
  • Sourcing large quantities of the plants required.
  • Finding room in our nursery to store an additional 5 thousand pots.
  • Ensuring the plants remained healthy throughout winter.

What we did

  • Maintained close communication with all parties involved throughout the project.
  • Propagated more stock to fulfill required quantities by the expected delivery date.
  • Used our extensive network system to source tube stock of plants we don’t usually grow.  These were potted on according to the client’s plant schedule.
  • Supplied all plants on time, on budget and on specific dates.
