Living Walls: Create a stunning visual feature
Oasis Interior Landscaping have decades of experience in using greenery to rejuvenate and improve both internal and external working and public spaces. One of the key products we use in our work is living walls. They are also known as green walls or living vertical gardens.
Living walls have the potential to transform any vertical surface, and are especially powerful when used within workplaces, where they increase productivity and staff well-being. A living wall can be used in many applications. Nowadays they are used for building cladding, combating street canyon air pollution, internal air pollution and much more.
Artificial Green Walls
Oasis is also proud to be one of the UK’s leading suppliers of artificial greenery, including artificial green walls and artificial vertical gardens. We understand that although living walls will have major benefits for all customers, some clients may not have the budget for living walls. Therefore we offer alternatives, such as artificial green walls and moss walls.
The Benefits of Plants and Living Walls
Over 90% of the average persons time is spent indoors. This is something many have us have grown accustomed to, and even accepted as the norm. However, there is no getting around the fact that indoor air pollution is a very real thing, with harmful chemicals such as VOCs (volatile organic compounds), formaldehyde, and carbon monoxide present in the air, amongst many others.
Here’s the good news: plants can help. NASA conducted a Clean Air Study, as part of its research into ways to clean air in space stations. They found that plants can remove these harmful chemicals from the air, essentially “filtering” the air around us continuously. Since then, multiple studies have shown the same thing, including a collaborative study on indoor plants between the Universities of Exeter, Groningen, and Queensland. In these studies, it was also noted that plants had a positive effect on productivity, happiness and well-being, making plants good for your business both physiologically and financially.
About Living Walls
For decades now, the presence of living walls in design has been steadily increasing. This is true both for exterior architecture and internal building design. They are one of the largest parts of biophilic design. They are now commonplace among progressive, future-led workplaces and buildings.
Green walls are the ultimate option when considering interior or exterior planting. They have all the benefits of normal potted plants, and also provide a massive visual impact, resulting in positive effects on the atmosphere and other benefits for the surrounding area such as economic well-being due to happiness, increase productivity, and less sick days. Using a green wall, it is possible to turn any vertical surface into a vertical garden.
Living walls have been advocated many times in the news, including in this great article from Total Landscape Care on enhancing urban sustainability. JLL Real Views also covered the topic well in a comprehensive article on vertical gardens.
