Living walls are a beautiful way to enhance the environment. They can bring a number of acknowledged benefits from creating green space to improving the air and the well being of your work or living area. No matter what your budget or scale The Urban Greening Company can design, install and maintain a stunning living wall for you, inside or out.
There are a number of green or Living wall types available:
Living Wall Climbing Facades
The most straight forward or traditional method to create a living wall is through the use of climbers and creepers. Just as has been the case for hundreds of years, a selection of climbing plants rooted or planted at the foot of a wall will climb or creep up and across it. In the modern world this process is often assisted by the addition of wire or timber frames and mesh systems.
Modular Soil Free Living Walls
By their nature soil free, or Hydroponic, living walls are a more sophisticated system of planting than climbing facade walls. Despite this in the long term they offer a much more flexible system in both function and style.
Modular Soil Based Living Walls
Usually Modular soil based Living Walls involve the use of troughs or containers combined to form a structure. This is then attached to the external wall to be greened. The planting itself involves the use of soil and substrate much like the ones used in a green roof installation.
