Mmm, now what can you put on a wall to make it look delightful and improve the air you breathe? The answer is of course a green or living wall. These vertical gardens are a boon to the nature-deprived ...and are ideal if you live somewhere with a dearth of shelves.
The installation of lush vertical gardens is well-established on the exterior of commercial buildings, and you do now find them in plenty of US homes. But we're not so au fait with them in the UK, which is a pity because they offer many benefits. They can look stylish and interesting, they can help reduce overall temperature in hot weather and they're good for improving air quality in the home - according to NASA, indoor plants do this by absorbing environmental toxins and increasing healthy oxygen levels.
