Plant walls are a great way to reconnect people with nature, but it needs to be done right. To have a successful green wall, some factors will influence the overall success of a living wall.
You will need a complete system design. Living walls mimic nature, so they will need light, irrigation and nutrition. Another major factor to ensure a successful green wall is maintenance. You must include a maintenance plan to provide service after the project is complete. Work with a knowledgeable green wall supplier to set up a maintenance plan. Work with a supplier who is experienced in maintaining green walls since it takes different skills than maintaining regular office plants.
City Plantscaping installed the green wall in this picture earlier this year for Jacobs/CH2M.
