What is a living wall?

Types of living walls

Urbanstrong offers several different options for living wall technologies which
can be customized to meet your design parameters and budget:

Modular, Hydroponic Planting Panel

As one of the most beautiful living walls out there, this system is made up of pre-vegetated panels that are affixed onto a structural wall.

It uses a hydroponic mix, which leaves no mess compared to soil-based systems. The result is a seamless tapestry made up of lush tropical plant varieties.

This is the best choice for long-term installations and installations that require a more designed look enabled by the system’s vast plant palette.

Outdoor Winterized Living Wall

This hydroponic green wall system consists of a flexible modular panel and metal sub-frame, which can be planted with a variety of shrubs, perennials, and ferns. The system has built-in moisture sensors connected to an automatic irrigation system. It is both light-weight and highly durable, with a UV- and corrosive-resistant construction.

The system’s soil-less planting core is made of insulating, horticultural grade rockwool with great water retention properties, and guaranteed plant replacement rates of only 7-12% through the harsh winter months.

This is the best working solution for outdoor living green walls in cold climates like NYC.

Mobile Self-Contained Living Wall

This living wall is a free-standing, furniture-like unit with optional castor wheels, and plugs into a standard 120V outlet for ultimate portability. It is available in both one-sided and double-sided formats. The plant surface muffles noise and acts as a space divider.

This unit is completely self-contained, with built-in irrigation, water tank and lighting. Plant root microbes purify stale indoor air of harmful chemicals.  The silent fans return the pure and naturalized air back into the room.

Installation of this living wall takes hours, not weeks, and is non-invasive; it can be done during work hours with minimal disturbance.

This unit is best for flexible space planning.

Living Artwork

The most portable living wall option, living artwork is hung on the wall as easily as hanging a painting.

The unit does not require electricity, and tanks built into the frame hold 4-6 weeks worth of water. Available in a variety of sizes and finishes, frames can include custom graphics or logos. This is the best choice for small or temporary installations.

Process

Process

Indoor green living walls are a hot trend with offices, luxury hotel chains, restaurants, and spas looking to breathe life into their lobbies.  Some of our green roof team’s recent living wall projects include a Soho bakery, two NYC-area universities, a famous theme park, and numerous private residences.

A thriving green wall in a lobby makes a striking first impression and tends to be a conversation-starter. It is a beautiful living work of art that cools and cleans the air and has been proven to have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of building occupants. Living walls differentiate co-ops, condos, and other buildings from their local marketplace competition, resulting in a boost in rental rates and re-sale value of all units in the building. We have a range of living wall technologies and will find a solution that fits your budget.  Just ask us.
