RoofTop Sedums has been busy growing new LiveRoof®projects this year, and we’re excited to continue our growth with the addition of the LiveWall®Vertical Green Wall System, the next level in the beautification and greening of spaces through living plants.
LiveWall®is an exciting innovation from the makers of LiveRoof®. It is designed to utilize plants in a variety of outdoor and indoor vertical applications of various sizes, including large commercial buildings as well as smaller spaces such as residential decks and fences. After numerous requests for a vertical growing system that works, LiveRoof, LLC looked at the existing models on the market, but found them to be too complicated and not capable of producing healthy plants. This led the people at LiveRoof®to ask “Why?”, and thus, the LiveWall®System went from concept to reality.
The concept stems from the fact that plants typically grow best in their natural state of growing vertically from the ground upward, so a system of planters was devised to use the right soil with the right plants and an integrated irrigation system to produce the best possible results. It is available as both indoor and outdoor versions of LiveWall® and LiveScreen® (mobile on wheels), each created and customized to serve different needs. Enhance spaces of walls, decks, and fences, and create improved experiences for the customers, including those at offices, retail spaces, restaurants, assisted living facilities, and the disabled.
There are numerous benefits to using a LiveWall®System:
- Socially, planted living walls create a relaxing atmosphere, inspire creativity, and increase a sense of pride and place that helps reduce vandalism and littering.
- Aesthetically, living walls bring color and interest to a space, and expands the usefulness of a building, creating an attractive addition to traditional siding treatments.
- Green wall vegetation reduces the urban heat island effect by cooling the air and acting as a substrate for capturing pollution, reducing noise, and conserving energy by further insulating structures.
- A LiveWall® Vertical Green Wall System can create a habitat for butterflies, insects and songbirds, along with potential opportunities for urban farming to grow your own herbs and vegetables.
