University of Tampa Student and Plant Move in Day

Welcome back, students and plants move in day!!
Eight 12 ft tall by 6 ft wide green walls stand like sentries guarding this beautifully planted fountain garden courtyard at the Tampa University. At the beginning of the pandemic, all the green wall plants had been removed. In preparation for the new school year, we flushed and scaled the irrigation, cleaned the wall trays and fine-tuned the entire system.  Then we set about to source the 3120 4-inch plants needed to make up the complete design.
Easier said than done! Green walls are incredibly popular, and consumer purchases of plants across the nation are soaring to unprecedented levels, so many plants are not currently available. Even though we are experiencing a temporary shortage of plants, we are please to see how plants make so many people so happy! We knew it all along!
