Installation Guide

Congratulations on selecting your new artificial vertical garden from Evergreen Walls! Before you order you’ll need to measure your wall to ensure you’ll have enough panels for the area you want to cover. Once you’ve received them, you’re just a few steps away from having beautiful greenery in your home or business.

The best part about your artificial green wall is no structural work is needed before installation, since the panels are very light. However, be sure to note the different surfaces the panels can attach to and what is recommended for each surface:

 

  • GreenWall01Gyprock/Plasterboard – Our preference is to screw directly into the wall using a 20mm screw with a good thread. There are pre-made holes on the back of the panels for you to use.
  • Timber – Simple timber screws only. Try using a screw with a large head for more coverage.
  • Stone wall – Nylon nail plugs. Pre-drill a hole, place the panel on the wall and hammer the plug. Alternatively pre drill a hole, add a plastic plug and screw.

 

  • GreenWall02Concrete – Nylon nail plugs. If you are unable to drill the wall, try cladding the wall with plywood and use timber screws.

  • Wire fence – Use black cable ties to hold in place.
  • Colorbond Fence – Screw directly using metal screws. If you don’t want exposed screws on the other side, you can pre-drill a few holes in the fence and use black cable ties to hold it all in place. If this also isn’t an option we recommend making a timber frame for your panels to be mounted on to.

To make installation quicker and easier, we’ve put together a simple step-by-step guide to help you out. The best part is no special fixtures are required and you’ll only need a few things found at your local hardware store.

1 Make sure the plants on the panels are facing upward when you hold them up to the wall. The plants will slowly open up and look more natural over time.

2 We recommend painting your wall black for the best finish! This isn’t compulsory, but it will improve your finish for your indoor wall garden.

3 When you begin, be sure to start from the top left or right corner and work your way across.

4 Use a spirit level to mark a line for fixing points across the top of your wall.

5 Fix your first panel in place using the guideline. You can find the fixing holes on the back of the panel.

6 Put your next panel in place and screw the top using your guideline to keep level.

7 Lock the two panels together using the clips on the sides of the panel.

8 Repeat this process until the top row is complete. Use three screws for the top of the panel to ensure it is fixed completely flat to the wall.

9 Once the first row is locked in place and fixed to the wall on the top and bottom, move on to the second row.

10 Simply use the clips on the edge of the panels to lock the next row in place. Once clipped in place, screw the panels to the wall to secure the panels.

11 Repeat until finished.
