The vertical garden known also as a Green wall is a unique and beautiful green implementation proper for walls or building sides.
The person who has officially introduced it for the first time was Stanley Hart White, a professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Illinois, who patented and named the green wall as a ‘Botanical Brick’ in 1938.
Why constructing a Vertical Garden?
Reasons are several, but the capacity of creating green spaces around our cities is nowadays quite difficult and it is not simple to intersect our modern infrastructures with nature. On the other hand we need to create a constant balance between concrete and green, not only for an aesthetic value but above all for our air and water quality.
Another valuable reason concerns the absorption of the solar radiation. One of the primary cause of heat build-up in cities is insolation, which is the absorption of solar radiation by roads and buildings in the city and the storage of this heat in the building material and its subsequent re-radiation. Green surfaces however, as a result of transpiration, do not rise more than 4–5 °C above the ambient and are sometimes it makes it cooler.
Wasted Water generally unused from our offices could serve the purpose of feeding our green wall instead of becoming unused wasted. Plants may purify polluted water such as greywater by absorbing the dissolved nutrients.
