Today was my first day working on the Semiahmoo Library Greenwall near White Rock (South-East of Vancouver). Upon completion, this will be the largest exterior greenwall in North America.
The irrigation and wall systems had already been installed. I started out by finishing up the pattern outlines on the wall. These mark the edges of the various planting zones. My job then turned to the transport of plants, depotting, and mount them on the wall (with a hydraulic jack). There was a bit or rain but nothing serious enough to need a raincoat, overall a relatively nice day. There are already some plants up on the wall but my camera decided to have a disk problem and I couldn't get a picture. Tomorrow for sure!
I'll try to update every day with pictures. Unfortunately there is no 'same-position' vantage point that I can fit the entire wall in a picture (for a time-lapse). The building across the street is just too close. I will however get some angled shots, they just won't be from the same location each time. I hope you'll enjoy following along with this project!
