Green Walls, Roofs and Green Infrastructure
Living Walls are emerging all over the UK in both interior and exterior projects and have been seen here since 2006 – notably the one of the first living walls was designed and installed by the French botanist Patrick Blanc at the Athenaeum Hotel on London’s Piccadilly, his pioneering vision to create vertical jungles has inspired the living wall movement both here and around the world.
Benefits of Green Living Walls
The benefits of Living Walls are being more and more understood by the broader public making them an attractive addition to any business or home, not only from an aesthetic point of view but also because they improve air quality, reduce noise, improve biodiversity in cities, provide thermal benefits in the winter and summer and reduce the heat island effect. As our towns and cities grow and with urbanisation on the increase, living walls (green walls) have a valuable role to play in improving health and well-being for city dwellers and workers.
Health Benefits of Interior Green Walls
When specified in interiors it is proven that plants deliver serious health benefits by reducing stress, improving air quality and providing an ambient environment – this in turn impacts positively on staff turnover and health which makes interior living walls perfect for socially conscious businesses.

Rain gardens harnessing storm water run-off with effective irrigation, porous wall fabric and porous paving solutions, green roofs to further impact on improving biodiversity and water attenuation, considered planting schemes in our managed landscapes which use native plants and support pollinators – all of these nature based solutions are important and delivered by the Scotscape team.
