Rooftop Gardens

Create your own little living space.

Our partners, Atlantis Water Management, continue to develop products and systems to convert bland concrete areas such as rooftops into beautiful green city environments. The results are a sustainable integration between urbanisation and nature utilising permeable surfaces, rainwater harvesting, geo-textiles and artificial turf. We're happy to help you with a rooftop garden, planter boxes and balcony farms.

 
Underground Tanks

Capture, store and reuse water.

The Re-use System has proven effective in providing a regular clean water supply for domestic and commercial applications. The system captures water from both landscaped areas through surface infiltration and from roof areas which are filtered through a Filtration Unit. Clean water is retained within the storage area away from harmful UV light and heat; remaining cool underground readily available for re-use. Typical applications include flushing toilets, in washing machines, watering gardens and washing cars.

Stormwater harvesting

Green Cities provides a complete stormwater harvesting solution. We offer stormwater filtration, water storage, integrated irrigation system and the purification of stormwater. This solution replaces antiquated Roman technology. Pipes, sumps, pits or difficult to manage gross pollutant traps, are no longer required to manage stormwater. These are replaced by underground water tanks, restoring the balance between the environment and urban development.

Permeable Solutions

Free flowing environment.

​The Turf Cell reinforcement structure is the most effective product available for both horizontal and vertical root growth. Unlike concrete systems, the roots remain cool and grass growth thrives. Driving vehicles onto the grass has no effect on the protected roots. Aesthetically, the product allows the grass to fill in completely, creating a lush lawn with an invisible reinforcement structure.

Our partners, Atlantis Water Management, continue to progressively develop innovative products and systems to convert the concrete jungle into a sustainable Green City. The use of permeable surfaces allows rainfall to immediately soak into the ground. Rainwater can easily be harvested through underground water carriers and tanks. Green cities act as a large permeable surface and can be easily built, by incorporating rooftop gardens, planter boxes and landscaped podiums. The added vegetation in cities reduces the urban impact on global warming, provides a sink for carbon and provides a point source solution for stormwater, reducing and even eliminating contaminated runoff into natural waterways. The results are a sustainable integration between urbanization and nature, creating a sustainable environment.

Flo-cell permeable solution is perfect for rooftop gardens, driveways and paved landscaping.

Vertical Gardens

The only way is up

Designed specifically for vertical garden enthusiasts, Gro-Wall includes many new intuitive and constructive features that benefit both users and designers. New features include a revolutionary watering system, improved wall anchoring and improved planting capabilities.

The Gro-Wall enables designers and users to install vertical gardens in adverse outdoor environmental conditions and in regulated indoor environments with complete access and control. The new enhancements provide targeted watering control of individual plants, and easy access to irrigation components.

Gro-Wall is the perfect tool for designers creating vertical landscapes and the perfect companion for it's caretakers.

Life-Like Plants
and Lawn

Perfect for any space.

​Sometimes living plants just aren't the best solution for your project. This may be due to limited irrigation potential, hygiene concerns, or even accessibility. To solve some of these issues the Green Cities team uses some life-like artificial plants and we have the ability to install realistic artificial lawn. Although the use of such a product goes against our beliefs, sometimes real plants and lawn just aren't right for some scenarios and we understand that.

Our range of life-like plants also allow for greater flexibility as they can be attached and styled to suit any environment without the concern of how they will be best maintained. The plants are UV and fire resistant making them the highest quality product on the market.
