Reasons Why You Should Install a Living Wall in Your Home written by: breezeright

A living wall (also called green wall, vertical garden or eco wall is a panel of plants grown vertically on a structure that is either freestanding or attached

to a wall. The wall is highly versatile and can be installed inside or outside a home and customized for any space. The walls can also be fitted to new buildings and refurbishments. 

There are 3 basic types of living walls:

(a) Panel systems:

Have plants pre-grown into panels and used either indoors or outdoors in any climate. Examples are Prowall and Sage.

(b) VersaWall:

This is a tray system in which plants are pre-grown off-site and then inserted into an existing wall. This type of living wall offers a great degree of versatility and can be used to cover an entire surface or employed as a living art. They are extremely popular for indoor displays.

(c) Freestanding walls:

These green walls are commonly used indoors and can be changed easily by either changing plants or changing their location.

What are the benefits of installing a living wall in your home?

(a) Living walls improve air quality:

Plants naturally produce oxygen-rich air and use up carbon dioxide. They also clean the air around them by absorbing and removing pollutants such as particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide. The effects of toxins from furniture, décor and other household appliances, such as VOCs, formaldehyde, benzene, carbon monoxide and trichloroethylene are also greatly reduced by having green walls in your home.

(b) Living walls add beauty and splendor:

A well-designed and flourishing living wall can immensely improve the appearance of a building by adding desirable color and texture. Each green wall can be designed using different kinds of plants, resulting in a living art inside a home.

(c) Living walls protect the structure of a building:

With a green wall, you can protect your building from temperature fluctuations that cause materials in the structure to expand and contract, leading to deterioration, fissures and cracks. Similarly, the plants on the wall can divert water away from the walls during heavy rains and offer protection from ultra violet radiation.

(d) Green walls reduce energy costs:

Both exterior and interior living walls actively cool air in the summer, reducing the need to cool buildings. Likewise, vertical gardens insulate buildings and reduce energy costs from heating a home during winter.

While vertical gardens do not come cheap (start at around $50 per square foot), the cost has been dropping quickly with skyrocketing innovation. Today, you can spend as much as you spend on buying a new generator to install an eye-catching five-by-six-foot living wall. In fact, with good planning and research, you can install a wonderful green wall for fairly less.

However, before embarking on green wall installation, you need to consider its location thoroughly. Like any landscape, a living wall requires light to thrive and if you are planning of installing it indoors instead of on a pool deck or patio, then you will need a skylight or indirect light near the windows. If you want to reduce the cost of your green wall, you should pick a spot that is readily accessible and offers lots of light. Equally, because vertical gardens require lots of attention, you need to consider having a professional handle the installation and maintenance for you.
