Transforming ordinary walls into living walls can enhance the aesthetics of a building and bring about a range of sustainability benefits:

living wall
  • Air quality is improved as plants filter out pollutants and smog particles. They also absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen into the environment.
  • Foliage has a dampening effect on sound, reducing local noise pollution.
  • Rain water is stored to sustain plants, helping to reduce the risk of localized flooding.
  • Greening hard vertical surfaces helps mitigate the urban heat island effect caused by heat-absorbent concrete and asphalt surfaces that turn built-up areas into heat sinks.
  • Biodiversity is encouraged with vegetation that can form habitats for insects, birds and wildlife.
  • The creation of exterior living walls can improve the insulating properties of a building, helping to cut energy consumption levels.
