Living Wall Construction
From the small scale of indoor moss artwork to extra-large exterior walls, there’s no denying that vertical gardens captivate regardless of their shape or size. But have you ever wondered what, exactly, goes into creating a vertical garden?
Living wall construction can be relatively simple or quite complex, depending on the size, location, and materials used. Here’s what to expect when utilizing a professional, experienced service provider to create a thriving vertical garden that will last for years to come.
Living Wall Construction in 5 Simple Steps
- Location, Location, Location
The first step in living wall construction is determining where you want your vertical garden to go. Lighting, space, environment, and decor style will dictate what plants and materials are used, what size will work for the location and what irrigation system will work best.
- Design It Out
Once the location details are confirmed, it’s time to create a design. Through the use of vision boards, blueprints, or even 3D scale modeling, every detail will be planned out accordingly in this phase. This is also when plant selection for your vertical garden takes place. Depending on the environment and aesthetics, you can typically choose from a variety of tropical plants, succulents and desert plants or preserved moss.
- Planning & Production
During this step of the living wall construction process, everything starts to come together. The greenery is planted, the framing is constructed, and finishing touches are made on the artistic elements.
- Delivery & Installation
After production is complete, your living wall will be delivered by a team of professional installers. They are responsible for installing the vertical garden, hooking up the irrigation system, and making sure that every last detail is as it should be.
Now that your living wall construction is complete, it’s time to enjoy all of the benefits your vertical garden has to offer. From decreasing stress in the workplace to improving air quality, these one-of-a-kind installations bring beauty and practicality to every space they occupy.
