greenscreen® introduced its unique trellising system in 1993. The project that launched greenscreen® was CityWalk in Universal City, California. The mixed-use program at CityWalk called for vertical trellising that would create "an inhabited bush" atmosphere, without compromising the waterproof membrane of the building facade.
The design team turned to an existing space frame panel manufactured in Southern California for more than 25 years. The panel was originally designed for use in a panelized building system for low cost housing projects, and has also been successfully used in visual display and merchandising applications. greenscreen® further adapted the panel and added accessory items and upgraded the finishes for landscape use. Since that initial project there are now hundreds of greenscreen® projects both large and small installed nationally and internationally where vertical landscape elements are required.
Manufactured from recycled steel, this three dimensional welded wire system creates a captive growing space three inches deep to allow plant materials to intertwine and grow within the panel. With the easily adaptable system of attachment clips, the panel can attach to a building façade, and can span openings between floors or horizontally between posts.
The successful projects represented throughout this website demonstrate the flexibility and adaptability of the greenscreen® trellising system. The panel size can be easily adjusted to custom specifications on a two inch grid to achieve unique results. The "Custom Variations" section of the website represents some of the more sculptural shapes and attachment details developed to fit individual project needs.
