How to Guide

Step 1

Measure & Mark Up

Using a spirit level, mark each line for fixing points across the top of the wall.

Start at the top and go left to right or right to left to avoid any gaps and unnecessary offcuts.

Step 2

Secure First Panel

Screw/plug your first panel in each corner using the guideline, ensuring the greenery on the panel is facing upwards. 

Step 3

Secure the Second Panel

Plug and screw the Evergreen Fixing, use four per panel. For even foliage, ensure the second panel is between 1cm and 3cm of the first panels fixing hole for seamless greenery coverage. Too close together will bunch the foliage creating a line, too far apart and the wall will be visible.

Step 4

Secure the Remaining Panels

Continue this process ensuring you alternate panels to avoid repeating patterns.

*tip - each box of green wall panels have slight variation in greenery placement for a seamless green wall.

Towards the end you may need to cut the panels to fit the wall. All panels are modular meaning each panel is made up of smaller panels for easier modification. If possible, cut along the lines using a sharp pair of scissors.

Step 5

Ruffle & Enjoy

Ruffle the foliage and add any extra stems as desired. If your green wall is outdoors, consider using cable ties to secure the stems.
