Patented Technology

plantwalldesign has patented a Vertical Gardens Technology.
The invention consists of a hydroponic growing system that nurtures live plants on walls.
The integrated automatic irrigation system delivers nutrients and water in daily intervals to ensure plants remain vital and healthy.
The felt growing medium serves as a blank canvas, and the vegetal sequences design is not bound to a grid.  During installation, pockets are cut by hand in the fabric to secure each plant individually with minimal soil. The finished structure is a thin, light weight wall installation.
The plantwalldesign system is optimum for tropical plants because it reproduces their natural growing conditions. Vertical Gardens Technology is fully custom and robust.


 

Benefits

Indoor vertical gardens offer health and wellness benefits. Plants consume carbon dioxide and purify the air of volatile organic compounds. Vertical gardens regulate indoor temperature and humidity through the process of transpiration. In addition to generating a temperate environment, plants have a pleasant aroma.
Large vertical garden installations provide soundproofing because of the capacity of the felt material and plants themselves to absorb acoustic energy.
The peaceful atmosphere created by a vertical garden increases morale and productivity. Living walls refresh viewers’ awareness, reduce stress, and elicit a meditative mood.

 

Maintenance

Vertical gardens operate automatically and are maintained by plantwalldesign staff.
During a maintenance visit, vertical gardeners trim the plants as needed to preserve the original vegetal sequences design of the wall. They also tend the irrigation system (timer, valve, pump, lines, and drippers) to verify that the automatic schedule is perfectly regulated and different plant species are watered as needed. This careful maintenance is paramount to plants’ optimal growth.
