As BALI members, and market leaders in living walls, Biotecture are working closely with the association by designing and installing two living walls for the BALI exhibit at Chelsea. The BALI stand is promoting its members from the domestic and the commercial landscape design sides, with Biotecture supplying its hydroponic living wall system and its domestic, PlantBox vertical planting system. The BALI stand in Eastern Avenue will include over 70% lush foliage, seasonal plants and flowers, decking and two living walls.

“Biotecture are proud to be associated with the Chelsea Flower Show, and as BALI members, we’ve enjoyed working with them to help design and develop this Chelsea exhibit,” said managing director, Richard Sabin “We’re delighted to be showcasing our flagship, hydroponic living wall as well as our new PlantBox domestic system at Chelsea.”

According to Biotecture, and much research, there are several benefits to incorporating plants and green infrastructure especially within urban developments. Living walls can help uplift people, reduce air pollution, aid biodiversity, meet sustainability targets and even improve performance.

Highlights among this year’s Show Gardens at Chelsea will include the RHS Back to Nature Garden, designed by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge and Davies White Landscape Architects. It’s part of an RHS partnership with NHS England to promote the physical and emotional wellbeing that access to green spaces and gardening provides.

The first Chelsea Flower Show took place in May 1913 and was known as the Great Spring Show. With the show now over 100 years old, it is the most famous Flower Show in the world and is at the cutting edge of garden design.

Biotecture design, supply, install & maintain sustainable living walls and green infrastructure, and provide full after-care. The green infrastructure can be external or internal. Their patented living wall system was invented by the founders of the company. Large-scale projects include corporate offices, airports, universities, car parks, hospitality and leisure. Smaller scale green screens and spaces are also been provided by Biotecture for use in retail outlets, hospitals, schools, residential courtyards or roof gardens.
