Today we opened our first installation in Poland of the new CityPot system of modular gardening, which is an excellent example of gardening in the workplace, in line with global trends.
The CityPot System is easy to develop and maintain. It does not interfere with flooring or with ceilings. It does not require permits or administrative permissions and can be treated as a fixed or temporary installation, being easy to disassemble and transport. It is an ideal solution for parking areas, courtyards between buildings, roof ceilings and garages. The weight in each case is adapter to the building’s construction requirements. Depending on the type of plantings for perennial flower beds, these requirements are 300 kg/m2 and 500-700 kg/m2 for trees. The Citypot system saves water: it is equipped with a mechanism for gathering and distributing rainwater. Specially designed profiles hold onto the atmospheric moisture, subsequently transferring it to the plants.
– Thanks to our solution there are no limits to our building a living landscape in the city – says Dariusz Malinowski. – We have removed all the barriers and offer practically unlimited possibilities of arranging urban gardens in terms of colour, shape and composition. This solution ensures ideal conditions for flower, vegetable and herb growth – an ideal solution for urban farmers and contributing to the biodiversity of cities. – adds Dariusz Malinowski, owner of MalinowskiDesign.
CityPot provides the opportunity to create a range of diverse, creative urban spaces: from miniature urban parks, through roof gardens, to urban farms full of flowers, vegetables and herbs.
CityPot is the only complete system of its kind. It ensures ideal conditions for plants in an urban environment, thereby leading to a stable ecosystem. A key element is the right composition of plants and special flooring – this represents the starting point. We have selected more than 20 species of plants adapted to a city environment, including: honey-bearing perennials such as Echinacea, jasmine, loosestrife, yarrow, bindweed, rudbeckia, catnip, marrow, geranium, anemone, verbena and bulbous plants such as narcissus, chessboard, garlic and lily. Flowering and fruit trees like lilac and hawthorn attract birds (waxwings in the latter case), elderberry attracts buddleia also called shrubbery butterflies.
Our team ensures a comprehensive service, whether the matter concerns the selection of plants, the sunlight levels, shelter from the wind, temperature, natural flora and fauna, the character of the investment and its purpose, or other related subjects.
