A living, green wall is an unforgettable sight. These vertical, vegetated surfaces can be installed indoors or out, free standing as visual screens or fixed to a wall. However the application, they’re highly customizable and a popular choice for designers and owners/developers alike.
There are many green wall solutions available and we can help you select the proper system for your project. While they’re beautiful on their own, green walls can also be incorporated into your GSI project, providing an important part of stormwater and microclimate management.
As they’re visible to more visitors, green walls provide one of the most scenic stops along the stormwater treatment train. In outdoor applications, they can be designed to slow down the rate of runoff coming from a building’s roof, reducing the amount of stormwater that continues downstream.
Green walls offer increased evaporative cooling surface area on the vertical plane. Through evapotranspiration, the urban heat island effect is minimized and a resulting cooling effect can be enjoyed. This ‘force field’ of cooling on the walls reduces the amount of heat being absorbed by the building.
A green wall adds beauty to any indoor or outdoor setting. Though they can be costly to install, building owners usually see an increase in the value of their property and are able to use these living, breathing, conversation pieces as marketable amenities.
