Chris Stager – SwissScape – Building Construction Consultant
With 25 years of building irrigation systems on lush rooftops and backyard gardens across Manhattan, Chris Stager is no stranger to the urban oasis. As a valuable VitaWall consultant, Chris focuses on utility and functionality, integrating all of the important structural elements with VitaWall’s unique plant design. Or in Chris’s words, “If you look at the garden and take out the plants – that’s what SwissScape does. The stone work, lighting, irrigation, fence, waterfalls and fountains – essentially the structure for the garden. That’s my passion, and I believe it can be both purposeful and aesthetically pleasing.”
