Leaf.skin is an ultralight vertical garden system that can be placed where no other vertical garden systems can be. Leaf.skin is composed by an anti-root waterproof membrane, a technical fabric as a planting support, adhered substrate and seeds with an only 5mm thickness. The installation process is similar to an advertising canvas installation. It is low cost, ultralight and ultrathin solution, of easier and faster installation than other commercial solutions.
ProSystem prototype demonstration in operational environment.
Prototype near or at planned operational system. Represents a major step up from TRL 6 by requiring demonstration of an actual system prototype in an operational environment.
Testing plan completed
The testing plan and the BRIGAID’s Testing Innovation Framework (TIF) has been rightly applied and finished. The TRL of the innovation has been effectively reached.
Selected for business strategy support
This innovation has been selected by BRIGAID because of its developer’s expressed willingness and revealed commitment to bring it to market. Ongoing support on business strategy and market analysis activities is being provided.
We mounted a 12m2 leaf.skin first vertical garden in March 2018 in a private house in Alicante to test the system in outlab conditions.

How does it work?

Leaf.skin is composed by an anti-root waterproof membrane, a technical fabric as a planting support, adhered substrate designed to maintain humidity with an only 5mm thickness, seeding with plants selected for these vertical and climate conditions. The leaf.skin vertical garden is assembled, sown and rolled up in workshop to be shipped and mounted in blocks of up to 12 m2 at a time, this speeds up the installation process which is similar to an advertising canvas installation. It can be installed at any wall without concernings about load limitations. The remote controlled irrigation system is a guarantee of perfect maintenance, seeds will grow and cover the vertical garden with plants in about two months from the installation.
