Benefits Of Living Walls

Living walls are also known as green walls or vertical gardens. A living wall is a wall partially or completely covered with greenery that includes a growing medium, such as soil, water or a substrate. An integrated water delivery system is generally found in the most of the living walls. Living walls may help buildings become more energy efficient which leads to a decrease in carbon emissions.

The living wall is a kind of system that supports a diversity of plant species, including a mixture of ground covers, ferns, low shrubs, perennial flowers, and edible plants. These walls perform better in full sun, shade, and interior applications, and can be used in both tropical and temperate locations.
