17 Oct Short on Space? A Vertical Garden Wall is the Answer!
Whether housed in a living area or workspace, plants are an excellent and cost-effective way to increase productivity, improve flexibility and mood, and generally make the indoors a nicer place. Many plants filter out allergens and airborne toxins, thus providing better air quality. Indoor plants also improve mood and help regulate humidity and temperature, leading to a more comfortable environment. But what if you don’t have room to keep plants around? Maybe you can’t risk planters that tip over, or you aren’t sure which plants you need, let alone how to care for them. If that sounds like you, a vertical garden wall may be exactly what you need.
If you’re not familiar with vertical garden walls, these designs allow smaller homes and offices to reap the benefits of lush plant life without taking up valuable shelf or desk space. They grow via hydroponics, which means with little or no soil. Plants are grown in specially designed structures that may be freestanding or attached to a wall. In addition, vertical garden walls are referred to as eco-walls, living or green walls, or vertical gardens.
One great way to start your own vertical garden wall is to consult a plant specialist. He or she can help you determine which plants will best meet your needs and design a freestanding or attached vertical garden wall that you’ll love. Better still, your vendor can also maintain your wall, keeping it looking fresh and alive and providing maximum benefits with minimal effort on your part.
Vertical garden walls are attractive and affordable and offer myriad benefits for homes and offices. As an added bonus, in a business setting, vertical garden walls can earn Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) credits for sustainability, water conservation, and efficiency; innovation credits; and energy and atmosphere credits. With that in mind, a vertical garden wall can pay for itself in no time!
