Different Types of Vertical Gardens and the Brands That Have Installed Them
Vertical Gardens is a unique concept that can replace potted plants in offices. The method involves using hydroponics to grow plants in vertical panels. Vertical gardens are excellent for livening up your dull interiors and providing a dash of colour to the environment. Compared to potted plants, they are easy to maintain and are ideal for lobbies, conference rooms, or public walkways. You can get a professional landscaping firm to install one in your office space or building to enhance the interiors or exteriors.
Indoor and Exterior Vertical Gardens
You can install Vertical Gardens of two types; indoor and exterior. Let us look at them in detail:
Indoor Vertical Gardens
They are excellent for filling up empty spaces in your office walls. Not only fabulous showpieces but also improve the airflow in your interiors. They clean up the air inside your office, which are exposed to air pollutants like carbon monoxide and formaldehyde.
Exterior Vertical Gardens
We use plants like moss or vines in exterior vertical gardens. They safeguard the building from heavy rainfall, temperature fluctuations and also protect against UV rays. In summer, vertical gardens cool the surrounding air and make the environment pleasant. Being exposed to natural sunlight, they grow well in exteriors and are easy to maintain.
