Vegetation and maintenance packages

All vegetation system requires some degree of maintenance, internal vertical walls and planters generally require less than external systems but all require a general and regular service plan.

All biophilic and urban greening systems are supplied with 12 months’ maintenance included and options to extend this cover which are cost effective and highly recommended.

Plant material for the home and workplace can in some instances be hired, systems are still managed and maintained, for more information contact a representative who will be happy to discuss the hire versus purchase options.
