A recent article by Delle Willett in the San Diego Downtown News showcases several of our living wall projects in Downtown San Diego.

GreenScaped Buildings was featured in the San Diego Business Journal this week in an article about the recently completed renovations at the Westgate Hotel in downtown San Diego.
The freestanding living wall is positioned next to the rooftop pool, just outside the Pure Fitness facility at the hotel. It’s a showstopper. It provides an excellent example of introducing plants into an urban environment.
It has already been used as the backdrop for a couture fashion show by Zandra Rhodes.
