Green wall

A green wall is a wall partially or completely covered by vegetation and also includes an artificial growing medium instead of soil and an irrigation system with drainage.

Depending on the size of the wall and the solar orientation, different plants would be recommended to achieve a perennial green effect.

The benefit for the property where this wall is installed is energy efficiency fundamentally due to the evapotranspiration-transpiration of the plants.

Additionally, the value of the property will increase and it will create many indirect effects on people’s well-being, including the absorption of polluting materials and CO2.

The most apparent benefit is the improvement of well-being given the visual satisfaction and the reduction of pollutants in the air we breathe.

Benefits

Integrating a green wall of live plants into your home can have many benefits

Thermal insulationc

  • Countless studies show that when a green wall is installed on a wall that receives many hours of sun, the temperature of the wall is palliated due to the creation of a layer of air, the shade the plants cast, and their evapotranspiration

Acoustic isolation

  • Like a green roof, a green wall muffles noises from the outside

Heat island effect:

  • A greener city, a city that breathes, is a city with moderate temperatures. Vegetation creates a climate of freshness around it that wouldn’t be there on a harder surface

Reduction of CO2 emission:

  • CO2 emissions would wane because:
    • Plants absorb it
    • The heat island effect would be palliated
    • Other CO2 emitting forms of insulation would be discontinued.

Urban biodiversity:

  • Increases urban biodiversity by maintaining the green corridors that range from Collserola to the Mediterranean Sea
  • Increases the m2 of green / inhabitant ratio

Pollutant particle absorption:

  • Absorption of polluting particles such as NOx and PM10

Economic aspects:

  • Appreciation of the farm
