A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO MOSS WALLS
Moss walls and living walls are ways that you can improve the interior design of your home as well as get near-constant contact with nature. We’re going to talk a little bit about what moss walls are in this article, giving you an idea of whether or not you’d like to add one to your own home.
Let’s take a look.
What are Moss Walls?
Moss walls are sections of wall that are enhanced with an installation of living moss. Moss is a cheap, easily maintained, and beautiful organism to add to the interior of your home.
It’s also easy to cut and manipulate sections of moss to fit whatever area of your house that you’d like to install it in. Moss is an indoor product can grow and thrive in shade with virtually no maintenance, so it’s not as if you’re taking on a massive responsibility to upkeep the section of moss that you install.
If you’re interested in an indoor installation that does require a little more upkeep, a living wall might be of interest to you. Living walls offer a little more vibrance, although they do require a little extra attention.
Living walls are installations of plants that are alive and rooted in soil. You can install living walls indoors, and they require a system to feed them nutrients and maintenance.
Naturally, it’s also possible to install living walls outdoors on your patio, the outer walls of your home, or any place you’d like.
What are The Benefits of Living Walls and Moss Walls?
Aside from the aesthetic appeal of living walls, there are a number of advantages that they provide when they’re inside your home.
First off, moss is excellent at cleaning the air of your home. Moss gathers different pollutants and impurities in the air and essentially breaks them down for food. Moss doesn’t have a root system, so it gathers what nutrients it can from the air and any water that it comes into contact with.
That means it doesn’t shake its head at the pollutants in your air and gladly gobbles them up.
As we noted earlier, there’s something inherently beneficial about exposure to plants and nature. As life becomes more sedentary and home-based, it’s important to keep a direct line to nature.
It turns out that plants of different kinds can actually reduce stress in homes and the workplace. Moss walls and living walls may provide a little more stress-relieving power than a potted plant or two.
