Brock White supplied Maccaferri Green Terramesh® to Sayward Hills Luxury Condos in Victoria, BC. Green Terramesh® is an environmentally friendly modular system used to form vegetated faced soil reinforced slopes and embankments. Sayward Hills overlooks the Cordova Bay Golf Course on the ocean, and the luxury condo required a vegetated wall face that suited the beautiful surroundings.
Green Terramesh® installs very rapidly, as the 3m long units have internal wire forms and braces to maintain the desired face angle, with adjacent panels clipping together quickly and efficiently. A wide selection of soil reinforcement geogrids can be used, allowing for the use of a range of different fill materials.
There was a significant planting design of four plants per square foot implemented to allow this monolithic wall face to blend seamlessly with its surroundings. As shown below, the wall began to immediately fill in with lush greenery to compliment the gorgeous ocean and golf course views.

Maccaferri Green Terramesh
Green Terramesh® consists of pre-fabricated units of double twisted wire mesh (8×10 type) lined with an erosion control blanket and stiffened with a welded mesh panel. Two pre-formed steel braces are supplied to be connected at the job site to maintain the unit to the required slope angle.
The angled front face and the erosion control blanket are designed to facilitate the establishment of natural vegetation of the units; an important requirement of Green Terramesh®.
