7 Ways this Biophilic Wall System Leaves a Smaller Footprint
Few will dispute the idea that living plant walls make commercial interiors feel healthy. But it’s also true that they require significant amounts of water and energy, which can diminish their beneficial returns. That’s why a system such as Garden on the Wall’s, which uses neither of those resources, is worth specifiers’ consideration. Here are a few additional reasons.
Plantings and moss are the real thing, harvested and preserved using a plant-based, biodegradable liquid that replaces the greenery’s natural sap.
The company’s special preservation process means its installations require no watering.
03 ZERO MAINTENANCE
In the absence of sunlight, misting, soil, and trimming, the natural installations are guaranteed to appear fresh for at least ten years.
The product contributes up to 17 different credits eligible for various sustainable designations, including three for the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED v4 certification.
By maintaining a published Health Product Declaration (HPD), the company lists its Preserved Wall Garden’s contents and the results of screening its chemicals against the HPD Priority Hazard List and GreenScreen List Translator.
06 RED LIST–FREE
This means the product is guaranteed to have none of the International Living Future Institute’s Red List of worst-in-class ingredients above 0.01 percent.
07 MINDFUL MATERIALS
By participating in the mindful MATERIALS certification library, a design-industry initiative in which registrants can view a thorough product declaration, the company is practicing a high level of transparency about its ingredients.
