If you are wanting to give your home a makeover, consider adding a green wall as an inspired way of bringing nature into your house or office in a unique way.
What is a green wall?
A green wall design is one way of combining nature and its benefits into an environment. Also known as living walls, vertical gardens and plant walls, green walls are built vertically or horizontally, with growing plants or constructed using faux plants.
This differs to green plants and trees rooted into the ground or in pots, which can take a longer time to grow or require further water irrigation if a living plant.
The best location for a green wall
The great thing about green walls, especially those made from artificial plants is that they can be used anywhere that you feel will benefit from additional greenery.
When you are using organic plants, the location must meet the specific needs of the plants included in your green wall design. Whereas the flexibility that faux plants afford means that your creative, green wall can enhance any interior or exterior design.
Artificial green walls though are more flexible in their location; particularly those with high quality UV stabilisation.
Why create a green wall?
Before looking at green wall ideas, let’s have a quick look at the why of green walls – in particular ones made using artificial plants. Exactly what are the benefits that you get from having a green wall?
Introduce the green of nature into areas dominated by bricks/concrete, creating spaces that have a greater visual impact and extended use. For example, a barren brick courtyard can become an appealing place to relax once you have added a green wall and some strategically placed tables and chairs.
Adding greenery to your home or office can reduce stress. Greenery provides a range of psychological benefits, people feel better when surrounded by nature – even if they are realistic artificial plants.
Installing your green wall ideas can help to enhance décor, brighten a space or add a feature wall inside.
