Some mind-boggling benefits of indoor green wall

What is an indoor green wall?

A green wall (also known as a vertical garden, living wall, bio wall or plant wall) is a vertical structure that has different plants attached to it. The plants are often planted in a growth medium and have a built-in irrigation system.  You could use these walls as a disguise for the unappealing area in your home and draw attention to an enthralling sight. It is an innovative and creative thought of co-existing with nature while adding dimension to any indoor space. This is one of the best ways to save space with a lush green garden growing up. Other than offering visual and biophilic benefits to your space, indoor green walls have many other benefits as well. They purify and humidify the air just like the HEPA air purifiers but without any consumption of electricity, decrease volatile organic compounds (VOCs), in turn promoting healthier, happier residents.

Benefits of indoor green wall

With an increase in urban population, there has also been an increase in air pollution levels and loss of green spaces in major cities. Indoor green walls not only help in improving air quality but also add an aesthetic appeal to your space.

1.Improved Air Quality

Indoor green walls act as a natural air purifier, creating a cleaner and more revitalizing environment. Having such an environment in your workplace ensures better overall employee health and productivity.  There are studies which have shown that plants and the microbes found in soil media are capable of absorbing harmful VOCs and convert them into a compound which can be used as food by the plants. Having a green wall metabolizes harmful toxins on a much larger scale as compared to having a few indoor plants.

2.Health Benefits

Living and working in a space which has a lot of flora has a positive effect on the well-being of people. Due to improved air quality, residents or employees experience fewer health concerns like headaches and respiratory irritations. Issues like tiredness, sore throat and irritated eyes also reduce. It also helps in increasing focus and attention. As a result, in offices where there is a lot of greenery around, absenteeism due to illness decreases over a period of time. Studies have also shown that exposure to nature can decrease negative behaviours, like aggression and anxiety, and increase cognitive abilities. Additionally, researchers have also found that having ample greenery around a person tends to reduce stress and mend mental fatigue.

3.Noise Reduction

Indoor green walls also reduce the noise levels in buildings by acting as a sound barrier to the building. These structures add an extra layer of insulation with a layer of air between the plants and the wall. Reflecting, refracting and absorbing acoustic energy, also, helps in reducing the noises levels. Consequently, the environment becomes much quieter, both inside and outside the building, with noise levels similar to those found in nature.

4. Energy Cost Reduction

Green walls are also energy cost-effective as the plants reduce the overall temperature when exposed to the sun. This helps during the summers as these walls create a cooler and pleasant environment indoors. The reduced temperature indoors would mean that you would require less air conditioning, therefore saving energy. As the green walls also have insulation benefits, they reduce the amount of heat escape during winters. Thus, reducing the energy costs for heating the building.

5.Visual Benefits 

Apart from all the above health and cost benefits, indoor green walls are equally impressive in looks. They make a spectacular impression by making an attractive and inviting environment, and add an aesthetic value to your space. The residents or employees can enjoy the soothing effects of being around the lavishness of flora
