So, what is the difference between living walls and preserved moss walls, and what is suited to your commercial space? Let’s find out.
What are Living Walls?
Living walls or green walls consist of real, living plants that require soil (or substrate) and water that is provided through an integrated water delivery system. They require regular maintenance to keep the plants alive and flourishing. Aesthetically pleasing elements that can incorporate a wide range of plants including herbs, flowers, succulents, etc., living walls are composed from multiple plants in a condensed space and help in cleaning the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen.
What are Preserved Moss Walls?
Preserved Moss walls, as the name suggests, are made of preserved and faux plants - mainly preserved moss. Preserved moss is real moss that is cleaned and treated to retain its color and freshness. As such, preserved moss walls are completely maintenance-free and do not require huge amounts of water, soil, and sunshine. Since these walls consist of real moss, they have the same calming, revitalizing, and uplifting effect of a living wall.
