Visually defying gravity, plants walls are stunning installations of living art. This fresh look at plant design is inspired by natural occurrences that have been beautifying walls for thousands of years. Ferns, vines, shrubs and trees naturally take hold and grow in the crevices and pockets of cliffs, waterfalls, or in the mortar of brick or stone walls.
Living walls are also sometimes called green walls, vertical planting systems, vertical gardens, plant walls or vegetated walls, according to Green Plants for Green Buildings. These plantscapes serve as living art and bring an unexpected design element to any space. As plants grow and bloom, the living wall becomes a constantly changing piece of art.
Did you know that a living wall actually naturally filters the air? The plants absorb the carbon dioxides and volatile organic compounds. Studies show that plants can even naturally reduce our stress and make us feel more at ease in our surroundings. A living wall could also be a great addition to an office space. It won’t take up valuable real estate and it will improve the environment for employees, supporting health and productivity.
