Last year Jock Gammon added “breathing” walls to a concrete carpark and now he has his his sights set on freshening up freeways across the country.

“We’re in a pretty exciting industry, because most of the projects have never been done before. Our ethos is about innovation and creativity,” the co-founder of Sydney startup Junglefy says.

Junglefy adds greenery installations to buildings and public spaces and has been involved in high-profile projects including the greenery walls at Sydney’s One Central Park.

The business is now partnering with the University of Technology Sydney to develop “breathing walls”, plant banks designed to withstand pollution and help improve air quality.
