WHEREChoosing a position There are many possible ways to incorporate a green wall inside your home or garden. Vertical gardens are a perfect solution for greening courtyards and balconies – they jazz up boring walls and act as a focal point to draw the eye through a space. They are also an effective foil for an unsightly boundary fence and can accomplish an effect that planters and troughs alone can not. In addition, they’re a good way to elevate plants out of reach of small children and pets.

Use vertical zones If you want to save floor space in a confined area, consider growing climbing plants up walls and fences as an engineered ‘green wall’.Vertical greenery can deflect water away from walls in heavy rain, help to regulate temperature and alleviate noise pollution. It can also provide nesting habitats for birds and insects to maintain biodiversity in your garden. There are some lovely climbing plants that will add scent to your garden, such as honeysuckle, roses and jasmine, which will also encourage bees and butterflies.On the Up and Up: Overcoming Green Wall Challenges
