Q. Living walls and moss walls, what’s the big difference?
A. Living walls are alive, meaning they require appropriate lighting, watering and pruning weekly.
We offer systems that can be hand watered as well as systems that have automatic timers. Our focus is to create a system that will support both you and your plants.
Moss walls are preserved and require little to no maintenance. We’re serious! Our pieces do not require water or light, making them the perfect fit for areas without daylight, like a tradeshow or basement. No water, no problem.
Q. Why don’t the mosses require maintenance?
A. Our moss walls, which utilize a variety of real mosses, ferns and flowers, have been preserved by a process using non-toxic, food grade glycerin. This process preserves the mosses for 4-10 years as long as they are kept in the suggested environment. Since the mosses are preserved, they will remain soft, lush and vibrant, resulting in a maintenance free, ever-green piece of art.
Q. How much maintenance do moss walls require?
A. Our preserved mosses and plants will remain lush, vibrant for years with the right care Our maintenance free moss walls do not require pruning or watering, just the occasional removal of dust, ideally removed with an air spray or soft cloth.
- To keep your mosses in optimum conditions, please follow this advice:
- Avoid crushing, pressing or folding the foliage, petals or flowers.
- Keep out of direct sunlight.
- Avoid exposure to humidity above 80%
- Only for indoor use.
- No watering or placing the product in water.
Q. How much maintenance do living walls require?
A. There are many factors that dictate the overall maintenance required for living walls like the plant palette, the location of living wall and the clients desire to be apart of the process. Our living walls are unique in that we do not take a one size fits all approach. We design the living wall system to fit the vision of our clients and their expectations on how they’d like to interact with the the wall. We can design a system that is completely automated, where the plants will need to be pruned quarterly and the client can be educated by our team on how to best maintain their wall. On the other hand, we offer a maintenance program where we take all the worry off of our clients and maintain the living wall to look immaculate and manicured throughout the year.
