Greening the walls



Vertical gardening of a garden plot

Let's start with the main thing. What is vertical gardening? This is a style in landscape design that involves the cultivation of various decorative leafy and flower crops in an upright position. This trend is very popular and is now actively used by both professional landscape designers and amateur gardeners.


Vertical gardening: principles, types, advantages

Vertical gardening is a very interesting, beautiful and original garden design concept. It enlivens the space and makes it unusual and picturesque.

Broadly speaking, there are three types of vertical gardening:

  • Gardening with climbing plants... The essence of the method is simple: vines braid a wall or other support. The oldest and easiest way. It is used to decorate the walls of various buildings and structures, as well as to decorate other structures: arches, obelisks, gazebos, etc.

  • With container flowers (vertical flower bed). The containers can be placed as on the wall of the building, as on the support poles. Flowers can also be planted in the chimney.

  • By technology "living wall" or "phytowall"... As a rule, this technology is produced using phytomodules - special racks with cells and a drainage system. With the help of such racks you can decorate the walls of buildings. The most difficult way, requiring a certain inventory.

Vertical gardening can perform the following functions:

  • For dividing the garden into functional areas, for example, a recreation area, an area for doing household chores, a vegetable garden, a green room.
  • For the decoration of the facade of a house, various buildings, buildings, structures, retaining walls, arbors.

Benefits and benefits of vertical gardening:

  • Decorates the surrounding space, garden, vegetable garden, buildings.
  • We make the site more comfortable, beautiful and green.
  • They hide the flaws and defects of various buildings.
  • Improves sound insulation (for example, from neighbors, from road noise).
  • Reduces dust, makes the air cleaner.
  • Improves the microclimate, enriches the space with oxygen.
  • Partially protects the building from the sun and, as a result, from overheating, as well as from other external influences (precipitation, wind).
  • Helps to divide the site into functional areas.
  • Visually enlarges the space and makes your garden bigger.
  • Saves space. Ideal for small garden areas.


Benefits of placing a green wall in an apartment

So, in addition to the obvious saving of space, we will consider a few more important advantages that greening the walls in the interior provides.

Improved air quality

It has been scientifically proven that foliage directly affects air quality. It is not for nothing that tropical forests are figuratively called "the lungs of the planet."

A wall with greenery will noticeably change the composition of the indoor air for the better. It works like a natural air filter. The vertical garden purifies impurities and supplies pure oxygen.

This microclimate at home will boost your mood and add energy.

Exceptional design

Anyone who has come across vertical gardening will confirm that it looks impressive. We are simply not used to seeing blooming gardens in this position, so the wall catches the eye.


Unsurprisingly, even the most unassuming room can be easily revitalized by simply vertically landscaping it. A green wall will make visitors feel friendly and will be a great soothing spot of color for the hosts.

Saving energy

Surprisingly, plants help reduce energy consumption in an apartment. When there are enough plants, as in the case of vertical planting, they form an efficient ecosystem and help maintain the correct temperature regime around them.

The process of evaporation of moisture from the foliage will cool the room in the heat, reducing the need to turn on the air conditioner. Likewise, the ecosystem helps keep warm during the cold season.

Reduced noise load

Vegetable structures on the wall reduce background noise from the outside, which is especially important for city apartments in noisy, traffic-laden neighborhoods.

Foliage absorbs and reflects sound waves in its path. Therefore, a vertical landscaping room will literally become a peaceful and quiet oasis, and not only because the green space company itself is soothing and calming.


The advantages of vertical gardening

  • High aesthetic appeal in a small area. This type of landscape design is a simple and affordable method of ennobling buildings, buildings and architectural structures, which gives them a memorable original look. The use of climbing plants allows you to visually expand the boundaries of the green area.
  • Easy to grow and care for. The vegetation used in landscaping vertical structures is quite ingenuous in courting, since there is no need for mulching and fertilizing the soil, weeding and fighting weeds.
  • Temperature correction. Arrangement of the territory through vertical gardening allows you to use plants as a natural curtain from the sun's rays. And also the vegetation on the building prevents dust and dirty air from entering.
