The sphagnum green wall (plant wall)
Different methods exist for achieving plant walls or fences, but one of the easiest to implement, without requiring tedious maintenance is the use a variety of Sphagnum from the island of Chiloe, west of Chile.
Plant wall, living wall, green wall…whatever the name or the method used, the concept comes from urban gardening and consists of revegetating vertical surfaces inside or outside buildings and homes to increase thermal insulation and sound insulation or simply create an aesthetic space with the greatest respect for ecology.
The Chiloe sphagnum moss has remarkable properties. Its great ability to retain water without loss of volume over time, its antibacterial and odourless characters due to its naturally acidic pH and its effectiveness in terms of heat and sound insulation, make it the ideal substrate for indoor plant walls, outside facades and vegetated roofs. Plants planted directly in the moss rapidly colonize the plant walls.
