“Many people get surprised when they learn the “lifetime” costs associated with a live green wall. “

When live plants are used, living green walls require consistent moisture. With very little soil to hold moisture, any interruption in irrigation will cause swift plant failure. This requires a regular maintenance schedule to check on the irrigation system as these can clog. As the live plants naturally grow, regular maintenance is required to prune and replace dying or overgrown plants. If the living wall is in a difficult space to access, a lift is often required.

 

Green walls are often located in prominent locations and this increases the importance of proactive maintenance that cannot be reduced or skimped. First impressions are everything and living green walls can deteriorated quickly with lack of maintenance.
