What is a Green wall?
The normal way for the roots of the plant to grow is horizontally, but with a green wall they grow vertically. To take care of that you have to put up a construction against the wall where the plants can grow,with a water supply system and a nutrient feeding system.
What types of green walls are there?
The range of plants are limited than with plants with roots in the surface. There are a lot of advantages with this kind of green wall. In southern countries you see a lot of Green walls in this style because the plants reduces the radiation heat against a building by providing shadow. This all keeps the inside of the building cool.
At Ecoworks we use a metal grid that we put against the wall where the plants can climb on. For every project we do we make a custom grid that flows together with the needs of the customer.
