Planted Design Wins Two Prestigious International Plantscape Design Awards July 15, 2016
Emeryville, CA– Planted Design (www.planteddesign.com), an industry leader in designing Living Walls and Moss Walls, recently earned two acclaimed International Platinum-level Plantscape Awards in the category of “Design” and “Silk, Replica & Preserved” at the AmericanHort Cultivate Conference, the largest all-industry horticulture event in North America. Winners were selected based on the quality, design and innovative strength of each project. Acquiring 90 percent or more of the total number of points possible earned the recognition of Platinum Level for both of these awards, which were selected by a panel of three industry-leading judges.
The first award, in the category of “Design,” is for Planted Design’s Exterior Living Wall installation in San Francisco’s Mission District. The 1,200 square foot wall was designed using 3,200 plants, many of which were bay-native and drought tolerant with bloom cycles throughout the year.
The second award, in the category of “Silk, Replica & Preserved” is for Planted Designs staged moss backdrop for a speaker series at the Visa Everywhere Lounge at Superbowl 50 in San Francisco. This Moss Wall spanned 24’ x 10’, and was branded ‘Everywhere Lounge’ with a variety of different colored mosses making up the lettering.
“It is a great honor to be recognized amongst such an amazing industry. I hope our designs can continue to brighten and transform buildings in city environments, and help bring the beauty and healing power of nature and plants into more home and office environments throughout the country,” said Amanda Goldberg, Founder of Planted Design.
