Brand your company as an innovator!
A living wall makes a beautiful and dramatic focal point that pleases clients, and highlights the abilities and professionalism of your company.
Learn what you need to know about adding these popular interiorscape features to your company’s list of accomplishments.
Workshop features include:
Four different wall systems will be demonstrated. Workshop participants will spend an hour at each living wall workstation learning about that system’s features, installation tips, how the irrigation system works, fertilization, how to troubleshoot the system, common post-installation concerns and design considerations when using each type of living wall system.
A seminar on “How to Price a Living Wall System”
A tour of the famous Henry Ford Hospital atrium
Lunch on your own in the hospital’s cafeteria with made-to-order meals using organic and farm-to-table produce and products
