Vertical Garden

What are vertical gardens?

A vertical garden is a technique used to grow plants on a vertically suspended panel. These unique structures can either be freestanding or attached to a wall. Vertical gardens have been used since ancient civilizations; many modern vertical gardens can last for decades.

Vertical gardens are a wonderful alternative to potted plants in the office space. While potted plants have the advantage of being placed anywhere, they can take up space and require lots of maintenance. However, with vertical gardens, there is only one large panel to maintain, and it will provide a lush pop of colour to any professional environment. If you think your place of business could do with a vertical garden, perhaps for a lobby, public walkway, or a meeting room, then you need to contact Houseplants.

Vertical gardens or green walls?

AVertical gardens go by many different names: living green walls, living walls and moss walls just to name a few. Vertical gardens can be placed in hotel lobbies, major corporation headquarters, or even a small residential backyard. Vertical gardens not only look impressive but will also make you feel more comfortable in your environment by tapping into nature’s inherent calming powers.
Environmental Benefits

Vertical gardens don't just look good; they DO good for the planet as well! Vertical gardens help to reduce the carbon footprint of a building by filtering pollutants and carbon dioxide out of the air, which also benefits those living nearby as the quality of the air is improved. Exterior wall vertical gardens also help to reduce heat absorption, which can result in significant energy savings in areas where people rely on air-conditioning during the warmer parts of the year.
Vertical Gardens are Easy to Maintain?

Vertical gardens are generally easier to maintain than a regular garden. Physically, working at eye level will just be easier than having to bend over. Also, the fact that the plants are in containers means you’ll need to devote less time to fighting pests and disease.
