5 Impressive Ways Architects and Interior Designers Can Incorporate a Living Vertical Garden Wall Into Their Plans
It’s been proven that being in green spaces improves mood, productivity, creativity, and overall mental health. Being near nature helps us feel better mentally and physically.
Busy lifestyles and lives spent in major cities make it hard for us to be exposed to nature. This is especially true during the time of COVID when it seems like everyone and everything is indoors.
This is why many designers are looking for ways to incorporate nature into the home and office by adding a living vertical garden wall. These lush features are surprisingly low maintenance and are great ways to add greenery to the living space.
If you’re looking for some inspiration for how to add some green to your design, read on. These are our top 5 ways to add a vertical green wall!
1. Trellises and Climbing Plants
Trellises are grid-like structures made out of wood, plastic, or wire. They’re often used in gardens to support climbing plants.
A trellis is a great way to form a green wall from a climbing plant. You can keep it free-standing, or prop it against a wall to guide the growth of the plant.
Trellises can support the weight of vegetables and fruits. This is an incredibly easy, low-maintenance way to start small rooftop gardens as well.
2. Moss Walls
Moss walls are designed to apply real moss and lichen to interior spaces. These walls are beautiful and relaxing, making them a good choice for central areas. If you have a home office or live in a city apartment, moss walls are a great way to bring some freshness to your space, keeping you focused and positive.
Some vertical garden walls require a lot of care. However, these unique walls are also very low maintenance! Lichen requires very little water to flourish, and often times they’ll get the moisture they need from the air or a light spray bottle.
3. Rooftop Garden Paradise
If you have a small balcony or roof space, you’ve got the perfect canvas for some green walls.
If you’re not afraid of a crafts project, you can hang mason jars or paint tin cans and hang them on the walls outside. For less hassle, you can also get some stacking pots that are specialized for green walls. This is a great way to plant herbs and other small plants to create your own little herb garden!
4. Hanging Vertical Walls
If you can drill into your ceiling, you can consider hanging a few clay pots from ropes to form a suspended vertical wall. You can hang two or three pots from each rope to create a layered effect.
Hanging vertical walls are a great choice for a balcony. And, if you hang them outside, you can take them down and move them inside during the winter.
5. Artificial Garden Walls
If you love the idea of a vertical garden wall but don’t want to do any of the maintenance, an artificial green wall is a solution for you. You can get interlocking tiles of artificial plants to cover a wall of any size.
These work well both outdoors and indoors, and can create a zero-maintenance green space!
