Green Wall


Vertical Gardens, living walls, bio walls, green walls, green facade, breathing walls / active living walls, vegetated walls, vertical landscaping, grow walls, & others are the different names given to different or similar ways of growing greenery vertically. Many people have tried defining this in different ways. One may define & categorize these as under though few will have different views.

Vertical gardens cover all of the methods of growing, covering vertical surfaces of a buildings, structures or any kind of walls by growing plants/climbers from ground or from the wall itself by using, planters, modules, pots, fabrics, or by mechanically holding growth mediums of any kind, using whatever way & holding plants firmly, with provision of irrigation & drain system. Therefore this is a very broad definition.

In Green Facades, climbing plants are grown on a wall where in plants attach themselves directly to the surface or are grown on some supporting structure. Here, plants are always rooted in soil or some other medium at the base of the wall. Such green covering takes years to grow fully. The impact of mortality of one plant has impact on very large area going brown. & such plants can not be replaced easily.

The rest of the categories of vertical gardens are mainly covered under different Green wall systems. Under Green Walls system, plants are actually grown vertically in a structure attached to a wall surface, held over or away from it & it is separated from the wall by a waterproof membrane if required. These are mainly divided in 3 types on the basis of growth medium it has.
