Green Wall Day February 15th, 2024

on Tuesday, 13 February 2024. Posted in News

Join us today (February 15) on International Green Wall Day and celebrate with us the beauty and environmental benefits of living green walls. The date marks the anniversary of the living wall inventor and visionary landscape architect Stanley Hart White in 1891, over 130 years ago.

Extraordinary Extensions All4
By chance we caught an old recording of Extraordinary Extensions originally shown on Channel 4. A gentleman, originally from Sri Lanka, living in Peckham decided to make some extraordinary changes to his home. These included a green wall installed by plants@work member, Biotecture.

It is worth watching to see how they go about the process and see the finished article.

Of course checking out Biotecture’s website will show you many examples of their work from external living walls to pictures to mobile screens for offices. You will also find many benefits of these green walls in different spaces.

Other members' Green Walls

Plants@work member, Green Team Interiors offer a number of screens for the workplace. They say, 'There aren’t many things we would keep from a pandemic but Green Screens are one of them! We designed them with social distancing in mind, but they are still incredibly useful – including being far prettier than any boring office dividers!'
