At ATLAS we take pride in offering this service. It is an extra way to bring more green into our lives with minimal upkeep and work.

Green walls also make a great addition to your home as a centre piece on your wall or even as a small veggie garden hanging in your kitchen. We work with only the best product and workmanship in the industry, giving you a truly unique experience
Living green walls are panels of plants, grown vertically using hydroponics, on structures that can be either free-standing or attached to walls.
They are built with a skeletal structure that is hung with sections containing the plants and flowers that will make up the Green Wall. As for the way the green wall functions itself, a lot depends on the type of Green wall system installed. Some green walls have watering systems which will provide a self-water to keep the plants healthy, while others require hand-watering.
As we run out of green space in cities, living green walls can turn urban spaces back into something natural and beautiful. They can also improve air quality and provide health benefits.
Green walls are used indoors for companies and properties that want to create a unique decorative space. A green wall is a great option for any business that wants to enjoy the benefits of plants but has concerns about the floor space involved. Green walls make a powerful visual statement to clients and potential customers, add color and a unique design element
Buildings are adversely affected by changing temperatures that cause materials to expand and contract, which over time leads to deterioration, cracks and fissures.
Exterior living walls give buildings protection, not just from temperature fluctuations but also by diverting water away from walls during heavy rain and providing protection from UV radiatio
There are the primary species of plants that do well in green walls, specifically ones that have a wide range of tolerances. Certain plants are very picky and they degrade very quickly, while other plants have a little more of a grace period, where they don’t die as quickly and are able to adapt better to their environments. Depending on the location of the living wall will depend on the species of plants.
The walls can be designed to customer’s requirements. There are factors that can be decided so that it’s possible to create a customized pattern, logo or TV screen.
Some systems are designed specifically for herbs and vegetables and vertical gardens like these can be a great solution to growing food in a lack of space.
Living walls can be fitted to both new builds and refurbishments. From adventurous garden projects to large commercial developments. Completely versatile, they can be installed inside offices or attached to the outside of buildings.
YES. The flexibility of green walls makes them perfect for all environments. Just like with office buildings, living green walls can be installed both inside and out.
Most green walls are designed with a drip-irrigation system, which maximizes the use of water and is set up using an automated system that times the irrigation to minimize water waste.
Recirculation systems are the most efficient. They reuse the water repeatedly, pumping the water from the bottom to the top, until there’s no water left. The tank is then refilled. Alternatively, hand watering is an option.
As a reasonably new technology, the lifespan of living green walls is difficult to declare with certainty. It’s been seen that the hardware, the panels and the growth media, can last up to 25 years, however how long the plants will survive is trickier to establish.
