Mr. Alvin Ma is one of the initial mover of development of Hong Kong vertical green wall system, his green wall career has started since 2009.

Mr. Ma wishes to promote a sustainable and user friendly green wall system, so he introduced a Japan non-soil green wall system in Hong Kong. Comparing with traditional soil vertical green system, a non-soil system has many advantages. This non-soil system dramatically changed the whole Hong Kong green wall industry and drove to non-soil capsule green plants. Many well-known projects such as The 13 Hotel in Macau and K11 MUSEA in Hong Kong are using this non-soil capsule green wall system.
