A green façade is a wall completely or partially covered with greenery. A green façade with climbing plants uses a trellis system to hold the vines of plants that are rooted in the ground or containers. Green façades offer economic, environmental, aesthetic and physiological benefits to the urban environment.
Unlike green panels that can be integrated into the building only if engineered to hold the weight (80-100 kg/m3), this type of green façades can be planted in the ground/container and using a trellis system they can be attached to any building or structure.
Green façades with climbing plants usually do not require any extra structural requirements. They are most commonly attached to concrete walls, but can attach to almost anything, or even be free-standing. To provide support for plants, twining or clinging self-climbers can be used. We can remove this NBS easily if we want.
Green façades get the recovery of the investment between the 5 and the 10 years. Green façades with climbing plants are both low-cost and lowmaintenance in comparison to other greening options..
