HEAT ISLAND EFFECT
Living wall systems can reduce solar reflectance of a structure and significantly lower a building’s temperature and mitigate the urban heat island effect.
WATER EFFICIENT LANDSCAPING
When rooted with drought resistant plants, a living wall installation requires very little irrigation. Harvested rainwater, air conditioning condensate, and/or foundation drain water can be used to eliminate potable water use and reduce site runoff and wastewater usage.
OPTIMIZE ENERGY PERFORMANCE
Living wall systems offer substantial energy savings to green homes and green buildings. The benefits will vary with local climate. For example, in the northern temperate zone the savings of energy expended on air conditioning is expected to range from 25 to 50 percent after a living wall installation. In warmer climates, the energy savings contribution from our vertical gardens will last for a higher percentage of the year.
