Living wall options & alternatives

We specialise in providing ‘Living walls’, but we also have other options which can help bring vertical greening to your feature spaces.

Living wall benefits

Although the main objective of a living wall is often to create a stunning design effect, a well-designed living wall brings many more benefits beyond its aesthetic effect.

When used indoors, living walls bring the The benefits of living plants in to the built environment without taking up the limited floor-space. Living walls allow greenery to be added to indoor spaces, creating a feature in a space-effective way.

Meanwhile external living walls increase biodiversity, provide additional insulation properties and can reduce the urban heat island effect.

Adding greenery to new and renovated buildings can provide extra BREEAM credits too.

We work direct, with architects and interior designers

Whilst we can work with clients on living wall projects, we commonly work with architects, interior designers and main-contractors too. Whether as part of a larger body of works or a stand-alone project. Our team are happy to work in the way that suits you and your project.

How much does a living wall cost?

A common question we are asked is "How much does a living wall cost?". Although the area of a proposed living wall (in m2) is a good place to start, there are several other aspects that will affect the living wall costs, for example:

  • Living wall shape and design (a simple square will cost less than a complex design)
  • Whether it’s indoor or outdoor living wall
  • The requirements and location of the irrigation system
  • Suitability of the underlying supporting structure
  • Living wall irrigation and lighting requirements
  • Other site considerations, such as any access equipment requirements

We’re happy to discuss your requirements in more detail to estimate the living wall costs for your proposed project based on any drawings and/or initial discussions that you may have.

We also provide and maintain self-contained living wall systems and Live Pictures which come in standard sizes. These can be a cost-effective alternative to a bespoke-installed living wall if they suit your requirements.

Living wall maintenance

Once installed, regular maintenance is essential to maintain your living wall’s appearance and the functions of its supporting system.

Because we maintain (as well as install) living wall projects we’re well placed to advise on the projected maintenance costs. We can mitigate any potential matenance problems at design stage and help ‘value-engineer’ your project to make the maintenance as cost-effective as possible.

Automatic irrigation

A key part of a living wall project is the irrigation system, which is required to automatically feed and water the plants and ensure the scheme continues to thrive.

We design and build irrigation systems and controllers to ensure that our living wall installations function correctly, use water judiciously and meet all water regulations.
