Green Wall Benefits

The Modular Living Wall Component and System is a patented structural system that provides easy construction and installation of a living wall, also known as biowall, vertical garden, or green wall. The term "living" is meant to imply any organic and biologically based organism. The green wall provides numerous benefits such as reduced air pollution through the uptake of harmful airborne chemicals by plants. Green walls may improve health when placed along public transportation ways and provide improved psychological effects due to the prevalence of flora. Additionally, green walls reduce the amount of heat that is typically produced by bare concrete structures. Modular green wall components also reduce noise penetration from outside sources. This is particularly valuable near airports or close to transport corridors.

The initial costs of installing a green wall is quickly recuperated. The modular living wall components reduce evaporation since water is supplied to the roots of plants. For indoor vertical gardens, the modular living wall components allow for an irrigation system to be installed in separated compartments, separate from the plant soil for easy inspection and maintenance. The specially designed drip irrigation system keeps the plants placed in the modular living wall constantly moist. Water may be supplied along the sides of the living wall via flexible soaker hoses which may then be connected to the horizontal feeds which run throughout the frames located above the containers. The hose may either be fed by a tank or may be connected to an outside source such as a public water supply.

Outdoor green walls that utilize the Modular Living Wall Component and System can help control stormwater by capturing rainwater in storage tanks for plant irrigation. This helps with on-site infiltration and evapotranspiration. Further, the roots of the green wall plants breakdown and utilize pollution and contaminants within the water to help reduce and eliminate them so that the remaining water that is not absorbed by the plants are naturally filtrated before being released back into the surrounding environment.
