West Bloomfield, Michigan – Planterra picked-up two top awards from the American Association of

Horticulture’s (AmericanHort) International Plantscape Awards for installations of living and green walls

in Detroit. Planterra received the Platinum award for the green wall at the Townhouse Restaurant at

One Detroit Center and the Gold Award for the 18 x 12 foot living plant wall at Henry Ford Hospital in
