A vertical green wall system is a wall that is partially or perhaps wholly covered with living plants. Some green walls feature an integrated watering system. A vertical green wall is also known as a vertical garden or a living wall.
Vertical green walls can be part of an interior or exterior design. The plants you can choose from for your wall depends on where the wall is located and your unique environment. One of our horticultural experts will evaluate your locations temperature, humidity, lighting, airflow, and traffic patterns to determine which plants will do best. You will then work together to choose which plants you want to incorporate in your wall design.
Here at Plant Solutions, we created MossWallArt, which is a feature in the innovative biophilic design. These works of art are unique and can be created in a variety of shades and patterns. We use real mosses, lichens, and natural woods along with other organic features to build an original handcrafted piece. The MossWallArt does not require much maintenance, so is an excellent choice for busy offices that want a live wall installed and not to have to worry about it again.

If you wish, we can even build an edible green wall. An edible wall would be a great addition to an upscale restaurant or hotel and would attract an abundance of positive attention. Guest can see precisely where their fresh fruits and vegetables are coming from.

They are catching the eye of architects, landscape designers, and contractors all over the world and are becoming a part of the fast-growing interior landscaping market. We here at Plant Solutions are the leaders in the living wall industry. We are the experts in the field and have been around since 1981.
