Weddles were the landscape consultant on the Shanghai Milan Pavilion at the northern end of the Shanghai Peace Park. The technical challenge for Weddles was the building façade facing into the park. This face was a large tilted grass roof, that extendedall the way to the ground level of the building. This elevated lawn echoed the park that surrounds it, creating seamless visual coherence across the site.
Weddles provided the expertise of how to ensure good long-term growth and avoid gravity slip on a tilt lawn. Our experience here is based on many years working with vertical elements of landscapes, and extensive knowledge of modular systems. We provided off-site training, selection of soil ratio, grass mix, automatic irrigation & humidity system and on-site installation guidance to ensure the grass was green and healthy at the opening of the building.
