Updated: 2 days ago

Harness the power of plants in your home today!



Spring is finally here! It has been a while since a long, cold winter; we all crave the warmth of natural light, bird singing, and the return of greenery. Since the outside is so vibrant, green, and sunny, let’s consider bringing the spring vibes into our space!


Creating a green wall, whether with real or artificial plants, is a fantastic way to brighten up your space and lift your spirits. Here are some easy and creative ideas to add a touch of life and colour to your walls. 


Let’s get creative with your design

There are many ways to create a plant wall, from simple wall-hung pots to more complex layouts. You can cover a wall, use hanging plants, or create sections horizontally or vertically.


Use different shelving options like wall-mounted wood pallets, wire racks, picture frames, and pottery to build your plant wall—endless possibilities!


Tips: Adding light to your plant wall is a great way to create a warm ambience to any decor, indoors or outdoors.





Enjoy the Benefits of a Green Wall

Spring Home Decor 101: Plants can harmonize and detoxify your environment. Did you know green walls can help regulate temperatures inside and outside buildings by acting as a thermal barrier, reducing energy consumption for heating and cooling? They also absorb sound, helping to attenuate noise from outside.


Here are some benefits of adding a green wall to your home:

  • Boost Creativity in the Office: A green wall can stimulate your creativity.

  • Create a Calming Bathroom: Real plants can add a soothing effect to your bathroom.

  • Improve Mental and Physical Health: Interacting with nature reduces stress, improves mood, and increases physical activity.

  • Purify the Air: Plants like aloe vera, snake plant, pothos, and ferns help clean the air in your home.

  • Regulate Temperature: Green walls act as thermal barriers, reducing energy consumption for heating and cooling.

  • Reduce Noise: They also absorb sound, helping to reduce noise from outside.

How to choose the best plants  

The choice of plants for a green wall depends on several factors, including wall location (indoor or outdoor), climate, light exposure, water availability, and aesthetic preferences.

Here are some popular types of plants for green walls:

  • Succulents: These desert plants are ideal for green walls because they store water in their fleshy leaves, making them drought-resistant. Species such as sempervivums, echeverias and crassulas are often used. They can be fed with water by spraying them, making maintenance easier.

  • Evergreen plants: These plants retain their foliage all year round, offering constant greenery. Examples include ivy, English ivy, Canary ivy and Irish ivy.

  • Ferns: Ferns are valued for their elegant appearance and ability to thrive in shady, damp environments. Some commonly used varieties of fern are adiantes, aspleniums and nephrolepis.

  • Flowering plants: Flowering plants can add a touch of colour and visual appeal to your green wall. Depending on growing conditions, options such as begonias, impatiens, and geraniums may be suitable.

  • Herbs: Herbs like mint, basil, rosemary and chives can be grown in a green wall, providing not only attractive greenery but also fresh ingredients for cooking.


Harness the power of plants in your home today! Adding a green wall is a fantastic way to bring the vibrant energy of spring indoors, creating a beautiful and beneficial addition to any room. From boosting your mood and creativity to purifying the air and regulating temperatures, the advantages of a green wall are truly remarkable.
