London needs more green walls for all its residents.
Living green walls, if you don’t know, are panels of plants grown vertically using hydroponics, on structures that can be either free-standing or attached to walls. They are also known as vertical gardens or ecowalls.
Living green walls are made up of plants that are inserted into a growing medium (e.g. soil) and then placed on walls of buildings, internally or externally, to provide greenery. They provide the benefits of plants, but use minimal space. Externally, living walls clean the air, muffle traffic noise and provide birds with places to nest and food to eat. Internally, living walls clean the air, boost productivity and creativity and reduce stress. Living walls look great in an office. Why not check out phs Greenleaf who design and install living walls! The environmental assessment questions put by development control officers to applicants for planning permission should include ‘Does the scheme include green living walls? If not, why not?’
