Vertical Gardens, Living Walls, Green Walls, or Plant Walls. Whatever you call them, they are a beautiful addition to any area. They are also excellent at reducing energy consumption, cooling surroundings, providing social benefits, peace, tranquility, and inspiration. Plant walls can even aid the interior of the building where they help to purify air and create a peaceful, stress-relieving environment.
In addition to a stable and more productive work place, living walls have demonstrated the potential to increase residential and commercial property values significantly. Property managers can improve office lease or room rental rates by covering unsightly walls or equipment with a beautiful wall of plants.
Today, architects and design teams are specifying unique walls of live greenery with functions ranging from fully cleaning the air to simply humanizing windowless settings or indoor spaces.
The most celebrated feature of any living wall is the plants. Thus, one of the most critical steps during design is plant selection. Our approach thoroughly examines the climates, growth rates and lighting conditions to ensure the right species is specified for the right spot on the wall. Foliage color, leaf texture, flowering times, and seasonal interest are all taken into consideration to create living compositions that highlight the unique qualities of each species while forming a visually impressive whole.
A living wall is a constantly evolving installation, and its ongoing success relies on maintenance and care that our Plant Care technicians will provide. Most of our living walls are followed up with weekly or bi-monthly maintenance schedules to ensure the system is functioning properly and that the wall continues to look vibrant throughout the year.
