The Old Garden Shop

I remember when this stood next to Mr Benitos.

This is the current state of the building:

148 Empty

But what if it was turn into ‘The Green House’ to serve the community as it once did?

Green wall systems absorb noise, are self irrigating, stop graffiti, help insulate the building and enhance the environment. They vary in price but are around £350 per metre square.

    I love vertical wall systems. I’m trying to find out how expensive they are? IT woudl be great to have it in my back garden. Do you have any idea how much this would cost? Did this happen for real?

    Hi Sam,

    this didn’t happen for real. This system costs about £150 per metre square for a green roof or £350 per square metre for a vertical system. Both are installed prices.
