EXTERNAL LIVING WALL

  •   Living walls can provide an urban refuge for wildlife. Depending on the plants chosen, birds, butterflies, and other wildlife may visit exterior living walls. Ecological benefits of Vertical Landscapes provide protected spaces for birds, bees, and butterflies, contributing to biological diversity.

  •  Air Quality Improvement Vertical Landscapes absorb gaseous pollutants and breathe in carbon dioxide through photosynthesis while trapping airborne particulate matter. The plants breathe oxygen into the air leading to reduced air-conditioning requirements and reduced greenhouse gases, thereby lowering your carbon footprint.

  • Living walls can help cut your heating and cooling bills. On exterior walls, both the growing medium and the plants themselves provide insulation and shade to the sides of buildings, cutting heating and cooling bills, in many regions significantly. Interior walls provide insulation. The insulating qualities of living walls also make excellent sound barriers to reduce street noise.
