OUR LIVING WALL
Built October 7, 2018
Our LIVING WALL is made up of 90 tropical foliage plants with five different varieties. We have included two varieties of Epipremnum aureum; jade and neon, commonly known as Pothos, a species of flowering plant in the family of Araceae.
Among the other air purifying plants in our LIVING WALL is the beautiful Pink Allusion Nephthytis Syngonium (Goose Foot Plant).
Currently we have our seasonal pink bromeliads with their striking, colorful foliage called Neoregelia. Bromeliads are a family of tropical plants that includes the pineapple. They are nearly all from Latin America and the Caribbean islands.
Nevertheless, our LIVING WALL has also been planted with a splatter of Crested Japanese Birdsnest Fern ‘Leslie’ Asplenium antiquum. Although they resemble lettuce- it is not recommended to ingest it.
Our LIVING WALL provides many benefits to our workplace and visitors. Most importantly, our LIVING WALL absorbs toxins (VOC emissions) and emitting oxygen for us to breathe. Plants have a calming effect too and raise efficiency by increasing concentration and productivity.
The benefits of plants go far beyond just aesthetics. The ability to use plants as tools to improve the environment has been a concept employed for centuries. Here at Avant Garden, LLC we don't just create living walls - we create living ecosystems. We emulate natural plant communities and processes, providing ecosystem services which are severely lacking in urban environments. With careful design and planning, we can create efficient and effective living architecture that offers both service and amenity.
