Air

Plants sequest carbon, produce oxygen, and remove airborne pollutants. Air pollution in cities is a major problem, and plants are a key tool in helping combat it.

Spirit

Plants improve our mental health and sense of wellbeing, we have an innate connection to nature, known as biophilia, being around nature makes us feel good.

Electricity

Plants and the microbes in the rootzones of plants can even be used to generate electricity in our specialist livingwall systems. This is an exciting recent development known as P-MFC technology.

Biodiversity

Plants are the basis of (almost) all life. Plants provide shelter and food for insects, in turn for birds, and right the way up the food web.

Water

Plants and soil in systems like greenwalls absorb rainfall and release it slowly, purifying it in the process, and can help reduce urban flooding.

Temperature

As our climate changes, vertical gardens provide a dynamic insulation value, keep warmth in during winter, and cooling buildings during the summer.

Noise

 Our cities can be noisy places to be. The plants and soil in livingwall systems can scatter and absorb sound remarkably well, improving acoustics.

Food

Plants provide food for us. Food produced in greenwalls, such as herbs, fruit and even root vegetables can reduce food miles dramatically, keeping food production local.
