Do it on the Roof are working to bring nature back to cities. They design, construct and maintain landscapes at a variety of scales in the built environments of Melbourne and Sydney. They specialise in green infrastructure: green roofs, green walls and rain gardens, and their integration with surrounding landscapes, including water sensitive urban design. They provide objective advice and services in green infrastructure and enable community participation and action through education and engagement activities.

In this talk, they will share insights and information drawn from their experiences creating and maintaining vertical gardens in Melbourne. This will include introducing a range of green wall systems currently available, and share their pros and cons, outline some of the key factors that need to be considered when installing vertical gardens such as irrigation, substrate choice and plant selection.
