Bay Meadows Living Wall Installation Complete

 

A colorful vertical garden now greets guests at the Welcome Center of new urban village Bay Meadows in San Mateo, California. The 86-foot long vibrant stretch of greenery mixes lush foliage with purple, pink and white flowers, evoking a sense of spring or summer.

In a timelapse capturing the living wall and landscape coming to life alongside the new development, Habitat Horticulture founder David Brenner shares his vision for the project:

“I’d be happy if people came to the welcome center and were greeted with sense of tranquility and able to stop, look, and relax… I think plants are not only important to the environment but also vital to our well-being.”

It was a pleasure working with Wilson Meany, BCV Architects, CMG Landscape Architects and Star Apple Edible Gardens on the project!
