Green walls, and where to start?

Is a Green wall a good idea?
From psychological benefits like less stress and improved productivity to financial benefits like lower heating and cooling costs, moss walls have a lot to offer. The environmental benefits of moss walls are impressive as well. They can improve air quality and help with humidity in your interior. Green walls can be installed in any indoor environment and prefer to be away from direct sunlight. We use 100% real moss that is preserved to keep it low-maintenance.

Real Vs artificial green walls?
Both real moss walls and artificial walls have their own advantages and disadvantages. Here's a comparison between the two:

Aesthetics: Real moss walls offer a natural and organic look. They bring the beauty of nature indoors, creating a visually pleasing and calming atmosphere. Artificial walls can closely mimic the appearance of real moss, providing a natural look without the maintenance requirements of live moss.

Texture: Real moss has a unique texture that adds depth and dimension to a space. It can create a more tactile and sensory experience. While artificial may not have the exact texture however high-quality materials can still provide a convincing and attractive texture.

Environmental Benefits: Real moss is a living organism that can contribute to improving indoor air quality by absorbing pollutants and releasing oxygen. It also acts as a natural sound absorber. Artificial greenery cannot absorb or release oxygen.

Maintenance: Real moss requires some maintenance to keep it looking healthy. It needs the right amount of light, moisture, and occasional misting to prevent drying out. Artificial walls don't require watering, sunlight, or specific environmental conditions to maintain their appearance.

Versatility:
Artificial walls can be used in a variety of settings, including areas with low light or where real plants might struggle to thrive. Artificial is also ideal for areas that are out of reach, like ceilings and tall walls.

Cost: Real moss walls can be more expensive initially due to the cost of acquiring and installing live moss. Ongoing maintenance costs may also be a consideration.

Durability:
Real moss is delicate and can easily be damaged. It may not be suitable for high-traffic areas or places where it may be touched frequently.
Your decision between real moss and artificial comes down to your needs, budget, and aesthetic. If you value the authenticity of live plants and want to improve air quality, real moss might be a better option. Artificial greenery is a good option if you're looking for low maintenance, cost-effectiveness, and durability.
