Indoor vertical gardens
Updated: May 27, 2020
Vertical gardens not only create a wonderful centerpiece to your interior space, but they help the natural airflow to your environment. These gardens can be made up of many different types of plants; ferns, ficus repens, pilea, and calathea being the most popular plant species used in green walls.
Vertical gardens are also very space efficient and can fill up any empty space on a wall.
Many employees in office environments are exposed to a lot of harmful air chemicals like formaldehyde and carbon monoxide. Vertical gardens work like a natural clean air system and promote a better breathing atmosphere and a healthier environment overall. Plants also help to reduce noise pollution which creates a quieter work environment for building occupants
Vertical gardening systems
Most indoor vertical gardens have a panel or tray system that is easy to maintain. Panel systems like the Sage Vertical Garden system can help you maintain your beautiful vertical gardens on lobby or office walls. For some projects, a tray based system like the GSky Versa Wall would be beneficial. This type of system uses polypropylene trays and a water resistant backing board to help the plants stay hydrated.
If you don’t have expertise in caring for the systems, a vertical garden can easily fail without proper maintenance. This means not only watering the plants, but pruning and removing dead leaves. Most vertical garden systems have complex irrigation systems that keep the plants properly watered although some level of maintenance is often required. Luckily, Ambius also provides monthly maintenance on many different systems
