If you’ve been searching for ways to incorporate some green space into your home, office space, or commercial space, a living wall could be the perfect addition. Whether it’s indoor or outdoor, a green wall can add life to your space and provide a beautiful, low-maintenance garden that you can enjoy every day, no matter what the season is.
What Exactly is A Living Wall?
A Living Wall – also referred to as a Vertical Garden or Green Wall – is quite literally, a vertical planter that is attached to a wall and contains plants – a garden on a wall. Rather than getting nutrients and water from the ground, the vertical design creates a self-sufficient garden. This means that they are very easy to maintain.
First, you select a frame that will house the greenery. These frames are used for support and are combined with waterproof panels. These panels include an automatic irrigation system that is installed within it. These waterproof panels are attached to the frame, which gives it a strong support system and allows them to be self-sustaining.
How Can a Living Wall Benefit Me?
Purifies Your Air
With a combination of materials and a thin layer of moss, the systems within a green wall allow nutrients and moisture to support the roots and allow them to grow and reach their full potential. Having an abundance of plants in your home or office space will purify your air and increase oxygen levels, keeping your space nice and fresh.
Promotes Health and Well-Being
We all know how soothing and replenishing being amongst nature can be for our health and well-being. Having a green space that you can gaze at and enjoy can provide your mind and body with a reprieve from the stress of your day. Even a few moments of being absorbed by the soothing beauty of plants can work wonders for promoting health, soothing your mind, and allowing you to regroup and refocus.
Increase Property Value
A green living wall is a great, marketable feature for your home or office. Sustainable, creative features are an asset to any space. Therefore, green features will only add to the vale of a space. So if you’re unsure about the potential for moving in the future, no need to worry.
Living Work of Art
Today there are a wide variety of designs that you can select from, with various shapes and sizes. So whether it’s on the wall in your backyard, or on a feature wall within your home, you can easily have your very own work of green art installed to give some flare to your space.
