In my last post, we discussed some of the history and benefits of living air greenwalls, a hydroponic system for vertical gardening. In today's post, I'd like to explore the concept in a little more depth, analyzing some of the different types of greenwalls, exactly how they function, and some of the most effective ways to use and maintain them.
To begin with, living air greenwalls generally fall into one of a few categories, depending on how they're constructed. Freestanding greenwalls are most commonly utilized for interior functions, and have the benefit of being ultra portable. It is also exceedingly easy to modify a freestanding greenwall, usually taking only a few minutes to shift it to a different area. The biggest drawback with this type of greenwall, however, is its restricted support structure. Freestanding greenwalls are limited in size due to the fact that they rely exclusively on their own construction for support, unlike other varieties, which are integrated into pre-existing or purpose built walls.
