What can you do with closed customer service drive-through? At OUC’s Gardenia facility, we repurposed with a purpose.

Meet our Living Wall and Rain Harvest Garden. These sustainability features combine conservation, aesthetics, and wellness.

Our Living Wall embraces sustainability to ensure a greener future. To conserve water, the vertical garden uses low-volume (or micro) irrigation. Each season, the wall is refreshed with seasonal edible plants and Florida-friendly and drought-tolerant plants.

The sustainable Rain Harvest Garden is a hybrid garden that has a minimal impact on the environment and works in harmony with nature. The strategically placed plants attract butterflies, bees and birds — all while allowing for natural pest and disease mitigation.

The garden also encourages wellness. It’s a pleasant place for people to gather, and it’s full of edible plants like herbs, seeds and berries.
