Recreational

‍Introducing greenery to any space, will add a recreational atmosphere. Seeing and being near green environments feels relaxing to people and enhances their mental and physical well-being. A green wall helps to reduce loud noises from traffic, as it absorbs up to 40% more sound than a hard surface. It results in a reduction up to 8 dB and enables you to enjoy the more natural sounds like the singing birds that will thrive in the added vegetation, rather than loud traffic noise.

Economical

‍A green wall can reduce energy costs by up to 30%, as it acts as insulation in the winter, and keeps the building cooler in the summer by creating a (green)screen from the sunshine. Making a greener workplace by adding a green wall inside also increases work productivity, as having something green gives more satisfaction and motivation. Adding green walls to a building greatly improves its property value with at least 15% increases per year. Last but not least, it protects the exterior of a building from damages and makes it more fireproof.

Natural

‍Adding greenness enhances biodiversity and improves the green infrastructure and overall conditions for animal life. Via the green wall animals can reach a green roof or move between buildings and into an urban park – something that makes it easier for less mobile insects or animals that cannot fly. It is also suitable for birds that love to hide in a dense vegetation cover  And birds would love to hide in a dense vegetation cover, so in order to they feel secure from danger. This way a green wall can help keep the local ecosystem in balance.  

 

Environmental

‍There are many benefits in this area such as CO2 and rainwater uptake, regulating the temperature, and purifying the air. A green wall stores carbon and produces oxygen. Plants absorb 50% of the sunlight and reflect 30%, so this remarkably helps to cool the local climate and mitigates the negative impacts from urban-heat-island effect, which means that big cities are 3 degrees warmer than their surroundings.

 

In terms of air purifying a green wall has the ability to take up life-threatening particulate matters which causes significant respiratory problems, reduced lung-functioning, and premature deaths in many urban environments. It is crucial to mitigate these challenges to ensure a city is not a life-shortening place to live.
