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.

Biodiversity

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

Water

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

Temperature

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

Noise

 Our cities can be noisy places to be, planted systems of livingwalls and livingroofs can scatter and absorb sound remarkably well.

Food

Plants provide food for us. Food produced in greenwall and greenroof systems can reduce food miles dramatically, keeping food production local.
