vertical arrangement of live plants, living walls can add an exciting pop of green to interior and exterior home walls, alike. Sometimes called green walls or vertical gardens, living walls make use of modern design elements to create stunning live effects. Plus, they have health and energy-saving benefits, too, as they filter toxins from the air and absorb heat. Living walls are a growing trend for both interior and exterior spaces, and exterior living wall technology is included in the plans for the Brookside Park Signature Park Lofts residential conversion project in Avon, where construction will begin in early 2015 with a target completion date of late 2015. In this case, live plants on the exterior of the building will offer a visual cue of its environmental-centered design.
