 Usage

  • TerraScreen is primarily designed for interior use. Some clients have adapted them for exterior applications. For those situations, an additional  hole should be made in the cachepots to allow excess rainwater to drain.
  • Even with good foliage coverage, it may be possible to see the wall behind the TerraScreen. We recommend waterproofing the wall and painting it black, especially if the wall is permanent.
  • TerraScreen is available with and without irrigation.  In either case we recommend watering from the bottom with the included watering wicks.
  • The watering system is designed to provide approximately the same amount of water to each plant. Experience shows that some plants will need more water on the wall than others. For example, plants at the top of large walls tend to get more light and be in warmer conditions than those at the bottom. Plant selection should be made accordingly.

Other Information

  • The TerraScreen system was originally concieved and designed by an interior plantscaper, Planterra of Detroit.  They received numerous requests from their hospitality customers, and weren't satisfied with the available products on the market. After several iterations, they began working with Tournesol Siteworks to create the TerraScreen product line.
