What is a Moss Wall? A moss wall, interestingly, is also called a green wall, which is where the confusion can begin between the two. We construct our green walls aka moss walls with real, but preserved moss that does not require any dirt, soil or substrate, and does not require any watering or misting of any kind. A moss wall is neither living nor dead, it is made of moss that is dormant, having been preserved using a natural paraffin or glycerin process. Moss walls retain their lush look with zero maintenance (except for the occasional dusting using compressed air just as you would use on a computer keyboard) for at least ten years. Moss walls, are a one-time development and installation cost with no maintenance costs associated.
Moss walls are a unique take on the concept of vertical gardens, with tiny details of moss suggesting an ancient, mysterious world beyond our understanding.
Moss walls can fit in any space under conditions where a living wall is not feasible. No plumbing or irrigation needed at all. Moss walls are incredibly lightweight for their size, especially compared to the same sized living wall. This is another advantage. And since they don’t require irrigation, you don’t have to compensate for the additional weight from retained water.
At Plantscapes, we believe that moss walls are a symbol of harmony, ages, and tradition and we discovered that we could create dimensional art pieces that abstracted natural designs, and complements all kind of interiors.
