15 Apr Green Living Walls: What to Consider
By Jonathan Senneff
Have you heard about green living walls? They’re also called “green walls,” “living wall gardens,” or “vertical garden walls.”
A green living wall can be professionally installed indoors — office, meeting room, hotel lobby, elevator lobby, etc. — or outdoors — hotel pool, at a building’s entrance, or in a courtyard area.
They can grow flowers, greenery, leafy plants of all kinds, and even herbs and other edibles.
Once you’ve seen one and the possibilities, it begs the question: Can I support and maintain a green living wall?
What to consider when installing Green Living Walls
Green living walls are great if you want to experience the benefits of indoor plants, but don’t have enough window, shelf or floor space.
- Better air quality
- Sound control (great for offices and noisey cubicle spaces)
- Temperature control
- Relaxation, soothing
- Increased revenue per guest
- Increased productivity
Are there children, dogs, or clumsy roommates around who might topple any planters? Is there really only one part of your living area that gets good light? Or do you simply want to add more life and color to a room? These are all great reasons to consider installing a green living wall.
There are plenty of ways to build your own green living walls, according to Pinterest. Of course, while green living walls are wonderful and greatly beneficial to your work environment, a poorly or hastily constructed one can be frustrating and even dangerous.
That’s why it’s great to have a professional install and maintain your green living wall. Plus, this takes the burden off of you. Learn how to maintain green living walls
The right installation requires minimal maintenance and can turn any wall—inside or outside—into a beautiful living work of art.
Finding a vendor for your green living wall is an important step. Insist on a company that sources its own plants and can tell you where each one originates. The plant specialist you choose should be upfront about costs and time frames and should offer a written guarantee. They should also have an expansive selection of indoor and outdoor plants, and should be able to help you select plants that work together in your vertical garden wall to create the exact look you desire.
Green living walls are a beautiful and natural addition to any décor in a hotel, building, or office.
