Greenwalls

Greenwalls

A vertical planting system, vertical garden, plant wall, and/or vegetated wall, created by providing a planting substrate into a modular structural wall system. Most commonly used are tropical plants, vines, and ferns rooted into a modular panel system, with an integrated irrigation drip system and control, a catch basin to control the water runoff, and a structural support system. When air is circulated through a greenwall, it becomes an active bio-wall air-filtration system, breaking down harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and creating clean oxygen. Greenwalls keep buildings cooler in the summer and create a sound barrier.

Greenwalls. Stone or log cribwall terraces suitable for planting can be installed on quite tall banks, especially if significant lateral earth pressures are not an issue.
However, numerous proprietary greenwall systems have now been developed that appear to be better at holding soil and rainwater and supporting persistent vegetation than these older systems.
Most greenwalls are simply vertical planting systems for the interior and exterior of a building.
Interior greenwalls use tropical plants--mostly vining, climbing, and fern varieties.
Greenwalls first made their appearance in zoological exhibits, but they're adaptable to almost any vertical surface.
These too can qualify as environmental designs if every effort is made to incorporate plants into the installation (see "greenwalls," discussed in Part II of this article)
