City dwellers who spend their daily lives surrounded by a concrete and steel jungle often yearn for something that resembles nature and can bring them back to earth amidst their urban environment. This is where Habitat Horticulture Living Walls + Design decided to step in. The landscape architecture company’s core belief is that “plants provide essential nourishment and vitality to our environment and the well-being of our community” as well as “bring greenery into urban spaces and into the everyday lives of city inhabitants.” The benefits of installing a living vertical wall in one’s home or business include: reducing greenhouse gas emissions, decreasing energy consumption and cost, promoting biodiversity and protecting native species. Health-wise, their living landscapes can help reduce stress and filter out harmful toxins in the air. The product also serves to use space efficiently – no need to take up precious floor space in order to add greenery when one can grow herbs, vegetables and ornamental plants on vertical wall space instead.
