04 Aug If Done Right, Green Walls are Highly Beneficial
Green wall benefits are numerous if executed properly. Indoor living wall systems purify the air, help buildings become more energy-efficient, reduce ambient noise, increase feelings of well-being, and reduce the heat island effect in urban areas.
While there are many benefits of plants and of green wall structures, if you don’t use the appropriate green wall design and plan accordingly, the project cost and the cost of your green wall maintenance could outweigh the benefits.
To properly and economically execute your living wall design, consider the following:
- Not all living green wall systems are created equally. Choose wisely. Some will need to be replaced or require major repairs after a short period of time.
- Remember that not all plants are suitable for living walls, so make sure your green wall contains plants that are sturdy and appropriate for the given climate and live wall systems.
- There isn’t a single solution that works for every green wall application; yours will be unique and have to function and thrive in the space you’ve allotted for it.
- Make sure you’re aware of the efficiency of the irrigation system of your green wall.
- Only work with an experienced design team. They will ensure your green wall is assembled properly and is in the most ideal space, with the right amount of light and that the plants are positioned correctly on the indoor green wall itself.
- Make sure that you are aware of the maintenance that will sustain a lovely and healthy green wall for many years to come.
- Work with an established green wall company that has service experience.
Maintaining plants on an indoor green wall is very different from indoor potted plants or plants outside.
An indoor green wall system is a wonderful investment if you take the necessary considerations and make sure it’s done properly. There are several types of green walls, so make sure you choose the best one for your application.
