The call for greener cities has grown in recent years. There are many possible solutions, but the space for implementation is limited. It is therefore not surprising that more and more often you come across lushly greened house walls - which can be used to green any city to save space. While ivy and other climbing plants have always adorned older residential objects, nowadays a mix of different plants on house facades of all ages catches the eye. These vertical or urban gardens are just capturing our cities (1).
According to the Trend Report 2017, this trend is also continuing indoors. The term 'indoor gardening' refers to fresh green that is brought into one's own four walls - or short: a vertical garden for interiors (2). The planting differs and either can be kitchen herbs, succulents or even large palm plants. Especially in offices, large green walls have many positive aspects. They not only minimize noise, they also provide relaxation, calming and better air. The complex and cost-intensive maintenance and care of living plant walls has prompted us to develop vertical gardens without any maintenance and follow-up costs (3). By preserving real plants, they require neither light nor water, but, for example, no longer contribute to improved indoor air. Depending on the application, it is therefore necessary to consider which type of vertical gardening is best suited.
We are vertical garden fans, whether indoor or outdoor, whether alive or conserved. Follow the trend and plan your own vertical garden. Here you can see our conserved walls.
You want your own vertical garden, but prefer one of our standard formats? Here we go to our green works of art with fixed dimensions.
