How to introduce a greenwall to any space in your home



Indoors or out, a greenwall in the home not only beautifies the space, it also improves the air quality, provides insulation and improves the mood of each member of the household. Mark Paul, Founder of The Greenwall Company and former Horticulturist of the Year shares his tips for greening any space in the home.

“There are a few things you need to take into consideration prior to installing a greenwall in your home, whether it’s indoors or outdoors.  The first is, do you currently have access to water, light and airflow. If not, is it going to be an extra cost to install plumbing, lighting or fans? Secondly, will the plants you like thrive in the space that you’ve chosen. Plant selection is key, and every space will require a different pallet design.”

Mark shares his tips for each room he’s installed greenwalls and greenroofs:
Outdoor Room: An outdoor greenwall can be a great way to not only hide tired/old fencing or an ugly wall, but also provide privacy from your neighbours. If planted correctly with high reaching plants in the top section of the wall, you’ll be able to create extra height and privacy without council approval.

Living Room: Get back to nature indoors. Greenwalls applied to internal walls, particularly in living spaces, offer a surprisingly high level of insulation. In winter they keep the warm air in and in summer they keep the hot air out.

Kitchens: The important thing about plant selection when it comes to kitchens is to opt for plants which are aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Bathroom: Greenwalls in bathrooms are great for improved air quality and the removal of toxins. They are becoming more and more popular following recent TV series showing them.

The Roof: A forgotten space for many. Applying a greenroof, or in our case EcoPillows to your roof will capture stormwater in addition to other benefits including, softening a hard roof surface, improved air quality and insulation.

“No matter what area you’re working with, our new and improved greenwall and greenroof systems can be easily customised to fit any space, large or small,” said Mark.
