Tazza Kitchen Living Wall

4ft W x 8ft H Living wall of mixed tropical indoor plants, ferns and air plants.

Westover Hills Residence

This lovely home now is turf-free and full of native plants! In partnership with the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay incentive program in the Reedy Creek area, these homeowners hired SG Designs to design and install a beautiful front yard Bayscape and serene backyard Raingarden to help control stormwater run off and create a new look for their landscape. New pictures to come as the plants grow in!

Succulent Moss Living Wall

Fresh off the wall from the 2013 Virginia Beach Home & Garden Show. Approx 200 soft and hardy succulents float in a sea of chartreuse reindoor moss. Very dreamy and a bit "Alice in Wonderland.' Looking for a new home so contact me if you are interested! Richmond artist Gresham Pollards's vine entwined globe rests of top as a wedding centerpiece. Check out his website:

Casa Del Barco Living Wall Panels

New Mexican restaurant opened Dec 2012 in a historic renovated building on the canal in downtown Richmond. Succulent vertical garden panels framed by reclaimed wood from oak pallets. Watered by irrigation wells on the top rows and any remaining water flows out to a collection tray on the bottom rows.

Greenroof-Rooftop Garden

Grove Ave. LEED GOLD residence with a third floor greenroof. This is the perfect way to give a fan house footprint a functional and modern garden space. Drought tolerant sedums carpet the area around a bluestone patio and pergola covered in native vines. A rooftop planter box contains vegetables and blueberry shrubs for fresh food in the spring, summer & fall.
