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

  • 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
