They pu­rify the air, cool tem­per­a­tures and are space­ef­fi­cient. What’s not to like?

M ost of us have seen green walls adorn­ing ex­ter­nal spa­ces, but what about green walls within the home, such as in the liv­ing room or foyer? The idea is catch­ing on here, and not sim­ply be­cause green walls are a pleas­ant vis­ual fea­ture. “Green wall sys­tems can help home­own­ers max­imise their ver­ti­cal space, while free­ing up hor­i­zon­tal space for other uses,” says Veera Sekaran, founder and man­ag­ing direc­tor of ur­ban green­ery com­pany Greenol­ogy. “A small green wall of 1m by 2m can hold up to 60 plants – a num­ber nigh im­pos­si­ble to have on the floor of a reg­u­lar-sized bal­cony.”

Over the next few pages, we take a look at how green walls can be in­cor­po­rated into the var­i­ous spa­ces of your home.
