we live and breathe green. You should too.
Research shows that keeping plants inside your home can bring a host of physical and mental health benefits. As sworn protectors of all things green, our goal is to break-through every assumption people have about plants and restore an age-old friendship that got lost somewhere along the way. Once you learn more about the therapeutic nature of plants, you'll be compelled to let us help you get your green on!
We are committed to improving the environment and make the places we live more beautiful. Indoor plants assist in removing excess levels of Carbon Dioxide from the air and are gaining attention as a sustainable solution to today's ever-expanding environmental problems. Plants like Pothos, Fern and Spider are a useful tool for managing indoor air quality and contribute to cleaner and healthier urban environments. Vertical gardens installed outdoors help increase biodiversity and attract valuable organisms, such as small birds, butterflies, bees and ladybugs.
Health & Wellness
As cities grow, more people are surrounded by concrete, traffic, noise and pollution. This has a profound impact over time on our physical and mental wellness. Greenery softens the environment, acting as a tonic to ease stress and fatigue. The connection between people and plants is as old as time. Intuitively, contact with plants creates a restorative and calming effect to the human spirit. Think about the last time you went for a hike or a stroll through the park. Do you recall the mental and physical relief you felt after being outside surrounded by nature? Getting back to basics through nature helps all people feel relaxed and focused, which leads to increased productivity and creativity to generate ideas and problem solve.
We create a striking, unique and original works of art designed to best complement its surroundings. When visiting botanical gardens, taking a stroll in a park or hiking through a forest it is easy to see that nature has come up with a huge variety of colors, textures, patterns and sizes. We use the inspiration of natural ecosystems in our designs and see plants as our paints and walls as our canvases.
Unfortunately, pollution reaches the farthest corners of the planet, including our indoor spaces. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, “People living and working in buildings of manmade materials inhale over 300 contaminants every day.” Modern research suggests that indoor environments may be as much as ten times more polluted than the outdoors. This is known as “Sick Building Syndrome.”
This is terrible news, as the average person spends over 90% of his or her time indoors, exposed to toxic fumes like formaldehyde, VOCs, trichloroethylene, carbon monoxide, benzene, toluene, and xylene. Plants have the ability to clean indoor air of these toxic chemicals by removing them through their roots. Plants provide humans the essential service of taking in carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen.
Our designs use plant pallets that mitigate against specific air pollutants to keep your work and living spaces as clean as possible.
Green walls are at the cutting edge of design trends. In addition to providing a new, innovative look to a building or personal space, living walls are a great marketing tools that can be used to promote a company’s green image. The use of green walls speaks directly to the conscious consumer, which is especially important in a growing environmentally conscious world.
Have you ever been in a large room full of people talking and you feel like you have to yell so the person next to you can hear? Did you feel overwhelmed by the amount of noise and left the room with a ringing in your ears? This is due to the echo created by all of the people’s voices or music bouncing off the walls, ceilings, floors and other hard objects in the room.
The leaves of plants attenuate sound by reflecting, refracting and absorbing acoustic energy in small amounts. The amount of noise reduction is proportional to the number of plants that are present in a room. Green walls contain such a large number of plants that the acoustics of a room can be substantially improved.
Plants and trees have been used for years as barriers against traffic and other urban noise pollution. Green walls built on the exteriors of buildings act in a very similar way. They insulate against noise and vibrations, reducing sound penetration.
A Fun New Way To Think About Gardening!
Vertical gardens are an alternative for gardeners who don't have a lot of horizontal space, want to cover an unattractive wall, or just want something different.
Growing a vertical garden indoors is very similar to growing plants in containers, on the fire escape or indoors. Plants need the same thing, no matter how you arrange them. It’s a fairly straightforward process involving containers, a hanging system, water and soil. Growing a vertical wall garden indoors is the perfect way to get your herb garden without taking up precious kitchen space.
