Benefits of living green walls There are many benefits that come with having a living green wall in your home, a major one being that it can improve air quality. There are countless toxins that can be in the air in your home, from gases from the kitchen to the pollution that comes from the outdoors. Having a living wall can combat these pollutants! The large amounts of plants that come with living walls will give you cleaner air in rooms. You can consider a living green wall as your own very personal natural air filtration system.   Another benefit of living green walls is that it can reduce energy costs and noise levels. Living green walls can provide shade from the effects of direct sunlight. Plant surfaces don’t store up solar energy like brick or concrete, but instead reflect it; so both interior and exterior living walls help to actively cool the air, reducing the need to cool the room.
