The Many Benefits of Cork for Living Walls
Cork is an all natural material that comes from the bark of the Cork Oak Tree that makes for an ideal living wall structure material for many reasons. Cork is naturally water and gas resistant, which makes it super lightweight, repelling any moisture or water from plants but able to be durable enough to hold the plants in place. It not only contains the roots and water but keeps it from getting contaminated from any molds or fungus. Cork is also temperature resistant making it ideal for temperature control as well as providing sound insulation.
Going Green & Even Greener!
Having a vertical garden full of plants in any living space is great for purifying the air of toxins. Cork is also known to absorb and purify harmful CO2’s which adds to the benefits of having a living wall. Having a living wall or vertical garden full of plants and cork can also help regulate temperature and absorb sound. Studies have also shown that having plants around in a work space can increase productivity by up to 20%. Cortica Garden living wall systems are also eco friendly, sustainable and use recycled materials making it even a better reason to utilize this system.
