Closing wall. The hedge is so beautiful and so practical when you are short of space for greenery!
In case you love natural greenery and gardens, but don’t have enough room, creating a green fence wall is a very good decision for you to have your dream green corner. It will go very well everywhere – in your interior, on the terrace or on the facade. For the choice of plants, we recommend that you seek advice from a landscape architect who has experience in planning, creating and maintaining hedges. This architect will be attentive to the concrete conditions in which your hedge will be created and cultivated. He will recommend the suitable kinds of plants to you and he will give you a diagram of how to maintain them properly.
One of the masters in creating green walls.
Today we introduce you to the world famous landscape architect Michael Hellgren with his splendid vertical gardens. From 2004, the specialist builds both small, pretty green walls and large green walls. He has in his autobiography a lot of projects and achievements of vertical green zones in many cities and many countries in the most diverse climatic conditions. Michael analyzes each project very carefully. First, he analyzes the conditions proposed by the concrete place, then he analyzes the kinds of plants that will be suitable and finally, he analyzes how the hedge will be maintained. He says that he draws his inspiration exclusively from nature and that he uses kinds of plants that are found naturally and are very stable. When creating a vertical green wall, Michael tries to mimic the natural growth of plants. He creates gardens with great biological diversity which are in harmony with the surrounding architectural solution and which look very beautiful during all seasons of the year. Each Hellgren creation has a unique design and the choice of plants is special. We pay attention to the specific environment in which these plants will develop, to the micro climate and to the access of light to the concrete object.
A green wall in Portugal
One of the latest projects of his Vertical Garden Design studio is a vertical garden with an area of 113 square meters. The garden is arranged in a new concert hall where there is also a gallery and a restaurant. It is located very close to the Beleme river in Lisboa. The building dates from the 40s of the 19th century. The green wall embraces the four parts of the kitchen and it is a true oasis in the heart of this historic building and it is the green heart of the restaurant. The vertical garden can be seen from everywhere. There are a few windows and a few doors. It’s a real draw and a feast for the eyes while waiting for a bottle of wine and a delicious meal. The gaze is calmed by the greenery, the body is refreshed by the breath of real vegetation. Indeed, experience shows that most green walls are built in restaurants and hotels, that is, places where people spend their time resting and diversifying.
Opt for a hedge.
So, if you want to grab the attention of your visitors and customers and win them with your attitude towards the environment as well as your aspiration to provide them with an environment close to nature, you have to think about creating ‘a green wall by a professional.
Green walls are a true product of art. They are beautiful and more and more popular since their benefit in relation to the living environment is proven.
It’s easy to make a “painting” with live plants at home.
Today we’re going to show you step by step how you can make a little green wall in your home, or in other words, a tableau vivant. To do this, you will need a few elements of the modular system for vertical walls BGreenwall. These elements are made of plastic, they are light and stable, easy for work and assembly, with a metal profile that adapts to the wall and with a special reach that will allow you to water your green board automatically. The system works equally well in small projects as it does with large green walls indoors or outdoors.
What you will need to make a module green board.
A BGreenwall element of the modular system for vertical walls.
3-5 liters of soil substrate (this will depend on the size of the pots you have prepared for planting the plants in and the size of the plant’s root system)
5-10 plants which are suitable for indoor cultivation and which comply with the conditions under which the green wall is found. You must have in mind the light, the humidity of the air, the temperature (if you are not sure in your choice, you can ask the sellers of decorative plants for advice or you can contact a specialist landscape architect; the number of plants may vary since you can split the plant you have chosen in two if it is too large and since you can not plant plants in each section if there are any one that is too large).

1l.-1.5l of water at room temperature.

So, let’s talk about our green board!
You must lay the BGreenwall module horizontally. It looks like a small box with 10 dividers to put plants and special slopes that direct the water to where it is needed. You should put friable soil on the bottom using the small shovel. The thickness of the soil depends on the size of the root system of the plants you have chosen. If you are not sure how much to use, your best bet is to apply a thin layer and experiment with one of the plants to see if the level is sufficient. Otherwise, you have to add more of the substrate.
Start by putting the plants outside their pots and carefully place them in the partitions of the module. Usually it’s very easy – you lightly squeeze the pot with your fingers and voila, the plant is released. Then you need to arrange the plants in the order you want. You can move some of them or you can try a different order to improve the arrangement.
When you are ready, plant the plants in the chosen dividers. Squeeze them carefully and add substrate when the separation is already full. Fill the soil well with your fingers so that you don’t lose a lot afterwards.
Now it’s time to fix the metal molding in the place you have chosen on the wall. Level well, mark the location with your pencil and secure with a screwdriver.
Now you can suspend the module.
Water by pouring water into the reach which is intended for drip irrigation. Do this slowly because it will take a while for the water to flow down and if you water without measure, the water may flow. Watering can be done while the module is still in the lying position. Afterwards you should let it drip (for example in the bathroom) because it is very likely that you have put more water in it than you need.
You can make a wooden frame to “dress” the module. Thus, your board will become even more attractive.
Water the plants on your green wall regularly. The intensity of watering depends on the requirements of the plants and the conditions in the room. You can water the plants to keep them moist on hot days. Remember to fatten them up the same way you care for any other houseplant. You can use artificial liquid fertilizer which you can add when watering.
Apart from decorative plants, you can choose green spices or aromatic plants. Otherwise, you can only use succulents. Your green board can be placed in your living room or in the kitchen, in the bedroom or on the terrace.
All of this can be done so quickly and easily with the BGreenwall modular system for green walls.
