Dress up your dull exterior with a green wall

Green-wall

I work as an architect for a big firm in the city and I love it. Right now we’re designing a series of new, small apartments built around a nice courtyard, and it’s one of the more interesting projects I’ve worked on.

As with a lot of apartment projects, space is a bit of an issue and we’re working on making the courtyard as green and lush as possible without taking up too much space. I did a bit of research and found O2 Plant Walls, and I haven’t looked back since. These guys specialise in designing and installing green walls.

Never heard of a green wall? Neither had I. It’s a vertical garden that is placed on an existing wall and can host any variety of plants, flowers, and even herbs. It leaves plenty of space on the horizontal area of the courtyard for tables, seats and benches but still allows a lush garden space for aesthetic and practical purposes.

The team at O2 are very professional, and I can see our firm engaging their services a lot more in the near future. They do small scale residential work as well, so if you’re looking for something similar at your home then you should definitely give them a call.
