How to Install a Vertical Green Wall
Designers and Contractors need to consider a few factors before commencing a green wall installation. The first is the nature of the watering system that will be installed to irrigate the green wall. Lighting is the second consideration. Many indoor green walls will require sufficient lighting for the proper intensity and spectrum for plant growth. Plant selection is also vital. A wide variety of indoor plant types are suitable for green walls, including annuals, edibles, succulents, perennials, and tropical plants.
Follow these basic steps to properly install a green wall system.
Fasten vertical railing tracks to the wall to create a level mounting surface and to allow sufficient air circulation between the green wall and the building. Then install the horizontal railing tracks. These will later be used as mounts for the green wall planters.
Hook up the irrigation feed system and test it to ensure even water flow. Next, install brackets along the irrigation system, then attach facing material (typically aluminum or wood) to conceal the irrigation feed.
Install wall planter modules into the slots of the horizontal rails and then install plants. Water thoroughly.
