The Balcony Meadows

The Balcony Meadows is a collection of lightweight grass floor modules that can be installed to any concrete balcony or patio. Many different grasses, mosses and sedums can be grown in the grass modules. The modules are designed for active use, so you can walk and sit on them.

The modules consist of

  1. Synthetic, flexible bottom layer with pockets for water retention. The bottom membrane helps in keeping the soil irrigated.
  2. Fabric layer that keeps the soil in place and protects the bottom layer from plant roots while letting moisture through.
  3. Soil layer with specifically designed, lightweight and water retentive soil.
  4. Wood frame that stands on adjustable rubber feet and holds the module together.

There are two sizes of grass modules, 60 x 60 cm and 30 x 30 cm both with the height of 7 cm. There’s also a 20 cm high plant module that measures 30 x 30 cm. It has enough root space for flowers, herbs and ground cover plants. The modules can be combined freely to create countless different layouts. Picnic on a balcony, anyone?
