NATURAL GREEN WALLS
INSTALLATION, CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Natural Vertical Ecosystems realised by Hortus Vertical
The vertical garden is an element that works for us. Each m2 of garden can absorb up to 2.5 kg of CO2, so harmful to humans, and can expel up to 1.9 kg of oxygen, so wherever they are, they are an important element for our health.
The vertical garden acts as an effective barrier against excessive heat and low temperatures. Its insulating effect is so powerful that in certain rooms you can even dispense with the use of air conditioning. Think that plants expel excess heat, as they do not need it.
One of the characteristics of vertical ecosystems is their great botanical variety. Depending on the place where they are installed, the botanical project will specify certain species or others, always prioritising survival over aesthetics. This variety offers a spectacle that conventional gardening would not be able to cope with.
REDUCTION OF AMBIENT NOISE
The whole set that makes up a vertical garden, substrate, plants and support, offer a great resistance to noise and therefore reduce its intensity. On the other hand, if it is an indoor garden, the plants will trap the echoes that bounce off smooth walls and are so annoying.
IMPROVES THE WORKING ENVIRONMENT
In places where there is a vertical garden, it has been proven that performance increases, at the same time that it generates a relaxed space conducive to creativity, perhaps because of the temperature adjustment that the garden makes in its normal operation, or by the reduction of annoying noises, but it generates a suitable environment for work and health.
IS A POWERFUL BARRIER AGAINST FIRE
Vertical gardens are powerful firebreaks. Its metallic support, its fireproof geotextile, the substrate and the plant itself prevent the fire from progressing at critical moments. In addition, it will help the temperature of the fire not to progress so quickly, slowing down the spread of the fire.
REVALUE THE PROPERTY
Vertical ecosystems add value to the property where they are located. The system, which is highly valued nowadays, is a sure asset that enhances the quality concept of the building
