Living walls, or green walls, have been around for centuries, but they're making a comeback in residential and commercial locations around the world. While most people think of climbing ivy when they consider a living wall, the possibilities are endless, especially when you choose a living wall design and installation company like Plant Escape.
How Living Walls Work
Living walls are defined as being vertical planting structures — anything from a simple trellis and ivy system to a complex vertical ecosystem, complete with irrigation and drainage support. These walls can exist in both interior and exterior locations and can be either standalone structures or integrated into other structures in and around a building. The possibilities are endless!
Benefits of Living Walls
Living walls aren't just beautiful and exciting to look at — they're also incredibly beneficial to your location. They offer each of the following:
- Air quality: Indoor living walls are especially useful for their natural air filtration purposes. Ivies are particularly good at removing volatile organic compounds and toxins from the air.
- Energy conservation: Exterior living walls are a great way of conserving energy in your building by shading and insulating the structure from temperature changes.
- Noise reduction: In both interior and exterior applications, living walls can absorb noise, creating more privacy and more serene environments for everyone in a building.
- Stress reduction: Something is calming about plants and greenery, especially when they're arranged in beautiful vertical structures. Living walls are great for commercial and residential locations that desire reduced stress.
At Plant Escape, we begin the Living Wall installation with a consultation, determining your design and plant preferences; and how you’d like us to arrange your plants according to your ideas in color, texture and including any artwork or personalized creative touches you desire.
Then we design your Living Wall, within your budget, and present it to you for approval. A team is scheduled at your convenience for installation, which usually takes less than a day. Our qualified Plant Tech’s are available to maintain your Living Wall with watering, fertilizing and cleaning thought out the year. Plants that are faring poorly are replaced at no cost under our plant maintenance program.
