Your Next Steps
Your Next Steps
Are you thinking of getting a living green wall for your home or business? Reach out to us and we will work with you to make your plant wall idea a reality. Because there are many factors that go into customizing and retaining a plant wall, be prepared to talk with our designers about the following factors:
Plant Wall Size – One of the first factors we will want to discuss with you is the size you would like your plant wall to be. The size will play a large role in the construction and design process, so it is something you want to be thinking about. Are you looking for a small living green wall to hang in your business, or do you want something larger that creates a wall in itself?
Freestanding or Hanging – Plant walls can hang on a wall like a piece of living art, or they can stand on their own. Obviously, there will be a difference in construction when it comes to a hanging wall or a freestanding wall, so you will want to decide which type of plant wall will work best for your home or business before we start construction.
Irrigation System – Plant walls are a living system, so to grow, they need to be watered. Most living green walls are built with one of two irrigation systems to ensure their health or growth. The two types of irrigation systems for plant walls are a direct irrigation system or a recirculating irrigation system. The direct system is hooked up to an external water source like the city water. A recirculating irrigation system has an irrigation tank and a pump. The pump sends water through the plant wall, with excess water falling back into the irrigation tank to start the process over. Which irrigation system do you think would work best for your plant wall?
Types of Plants – Another factor that needs to be considered with a plant wall is the type of plants that will be put in the wall. For this step, we will need to talk to you about the environment your plant wall will be located in. Our expert horticulturalists will pick the plants that will thrive best in your environment. They will consider factors such as the amount of light, space to grow, traffic flow, and more to pick the best plants for you.
Installation and Maintenance – At Plant Solutions, we also provide installation and maintenance for plant walls, so we will discuss these services with you as we talk about creating your plant wall.
