Good morning Alex,
I’m understanding you now, Green wall Retrofitting . For a patent search Check out http://www.patentstorm.us/ . Good luck
Claudio my thought process was geared towards building on an existing fence.A lighter version will allow flexible and modular designs to the end user.The difference would be in the ease of installation. Possibly integrating some kind of rail system where I could hang, adjust or remove these at will vs a more permanent structure where I might have to hire a contractor a deal with city codes.
Thank you very much Alex,
A single planter block currently weighs 40lbs a 8x8x16 regular block weighs 42 lbs. As of now more focus has been spent on the overall proof of concept. To reduce green wall cost and dovetail with existing construction means and methods. These blocks can also be integrated in any regular concrete block construction fence, wall, houses, larger buildings you name it. However it would be up to the user to decide and assign a specific roll or purpose before construction. To name a few ( microclimate creator ), (water runoff control), (Integrated vertical herb garden in your house), (sound buffer) etc. Designing for a light weight aggregate concrete is another project in itself. There is also the thought of making clay blocks to reduce the carbon foot print or even compressed glue laminated bamboo blocks waterproofed of course. Now; to answer your other question I need clarification. On a fence, do you mean to hang lighter version planters of off an existing fence? Or just a lighter version to be able to build a fence using less man hours.
Love these living wall ideas, very intelligent use of space.How heavy are these blocks and are you planning to make a lighter version that may be used on a fence ?
Hello, If the intended use is for aquaponics; Yes, It could be made PH neutral see link below as an example
This is from the aquaponics news letter
Is your block pH neutral?
