The recent trend of vertical gardening is becoming increasingly widespread as inspiration, creativity, and technology reach new heights. No longer limited to the ground underneath our feet, gardens are taking shape and thriving in vertical spaces. Vertical gardens offer the ability to maximize space and can be as simple or complex as desired by the owner, limited only by their imagination.
Not limited to creating a wonderful centerpiece, vertical gardens can fill up virtually any empty space on a wall and can be utilized to grow vegetables and herbs. Vertical gardens also help the natural airflow in your indoor environment as many of us are exposed to harmful air chemicals like formaldehyde and carbon monoxide. Vertical gardens operate as a natural clean air system by producing a better breathing atmosphere and a healthier environment overall. Plants also help reduce noise pollution and increase acoustics which helps create an optimal environment for work or at home.
Many buildings around the world have vertical gardens installed on their exteriors. Outdoors, vertical gardens have the advantage of having natural direct sunlight which makes them thrive. Vertical gardens on the exterior give buildings breathtaking aesthetics, improved insulation, and reduce energy consumption. In the Summer, vertical gardens use a process called "Evapotranspiration" which cools the air around it and contributes to the water cycle which is inextricably linked to our climate.
