GroVert Living Wall at the Great American Ball Park 2015

Posted

For us at Bright Green USA supplying GroVerts for living walls are what we do. To be part of what has become a MLB tradition was not only a honor but out right fun. Going through the process of assembly as it came alive and watching the faces of those seeing it for the first time made it that much more exciting. For that we have Bill Reinberger Reds VP, Doug Evans and Adam Clifton of Evans Landscaping and Olympic Lawns (installed irrigation) to thank for including us along the way.

Living Wall at the Great American Ball Park 

As Doug Evans president of Evans Landscaping, and field supervisor Adam Clifton landscaped part of the main entrance to Great American Ball Park (GABP) they provided the manpower to install the GroVerts trays planted and pre-grown with 19,000 plants specifically for this awesome occasion.

When fans arrived at GABP for the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, they were greeted by an enormous foliage display that will look like something out of the Rose Parade.


Evans Landscaping, a Cincinnati Reds sponsor, has installed 1,900 filled GroVerts that covered the metal gates at the main entrance,thus creating a living wall. The foliage display transformed the bland white metal grates that surround the main entrance into a colorful extravaganza.
"The Living Wall display has be designed to look like the All-Star Game logo and to spell out “All-Star Summer,” said Evans field supervisor Adam Clifton. Evans Landscape has been custom-growing these plants since mid-April.

“We’ve been fortunate to work on some nice projects, and when the Reds asked us to do this, we jumped at the chance,” said company president Doug Evans. “Reds baseball and summer in Cincinnati, it’s a nice atmosphere here.”
Newtown-based Evans installed 1,900 planters, each with 10 4 inch plants, on those entrance gates. The Reds fans were able to get to take in the color for the last six home games before the All-Star Game, which was July 14, The Futures Game and Celebrity Softball Game on July 12, with the Home Run Derby July 13.


“We wanted to put the brightest light on the city,” stated Bill Reinberger, the Reds vice president of corporate sales.
The Reds plan to keep the living wall up all season, might even change it up a bit. Reds have the opportunity to recreate it each year as they choose. Evans said.
