Vertical Planting Designs
The vertical planting system is an assembly of several identical individual growing containers stacked vertically on a support pole. The containers are constructed from moulded STYROFOAM and feature a bottom wall that is outwardly tapered, with sidewalls that are open at the top and have discrete upwardly-facing planting areas. The containers are supported by an elongated upright support pole that is driven into the ground, with an aperture in the bottom wall.
The benefits of a vertical planting system include an easy-to-maintain system that is easy to use and requires little maintenance. Water trickles down the top of the system, ensuring that plants receive water and nutrients from below. Plants in direct sunlight do well with this system. However, some other types of plants may not tolerate such light. In addition to succulents, plants that can tolerate direct sunlight may not be as appealing as those that do.
Some workplaces use plants to improve the health of employees, while others are concerned with reducing air conditioning costs. Some studies have shown that the presence of greenery in an office environment may reduce stress and boost creativity. One company in Shenzhen has installed a vertical planting system in its office building. The system allows workers to move the plants to different locations. They can move the plants in and out of the system as necessary, and this can reduce the demand for air conditioning.
The first vertical planting system was developed in 1986 by Patrick Blanc, who installed it in the Cite des Sciences et Industrie building in Paris. In the vertical system, PVC pipes and felt pockets resemble the mosses that grow on cliffs. Plants could thrive in these closed-circuit water supplies. Blanc is the first to have successfully applied this concept in a commercial setting. And it is now widely used in public spaces all over the world.
A modular vertical planting system is another type of gardening system. The system includes multiple modular planting units that can be stacked at varying angular orientations. Each modular planting unit includes a centre column with a mounting flange that extends upward from the lowermost portion of the centre column of another planting unit. As each planting unit is installed, it couples each other vertically. Then, the support columns can be removed to reveal the vertical planting system.
AgroSci GardenWall Kit is a user-friendly, affordable, and easy-to-install kit. Commercial designers use Green wall growing systems for their projects. The system is simple to install and maintain and can be placed on fences, posts, railings, and exterior walls. In addition to providing beauty and functionality, a vertical garden is also beneficial to the environment and human health. While it costs more than a traditional landscape, the benefits of using one are well worth the investment.
A vertical cultivation system can be used for many different purposes, including growing food and flowers. Some vertical cultivation systems use soil and use coconut fibre or coco peat. Others use gravel or Rockwool as the growing medium. The growing medium supplies nutrients directly to the roots of the plants. Since the roots are enclosed in the substrate, water is directly provided to them. The root system, or “nutrient water”, is constantly monitored to ensure it has the right nutrient composition and is not too salty. A vertical cultivation system can be used for any size of the plant.
A vertical planting system is an environmentally-friendly way to add colour to an office or residential space. The system is a great way to provide privacy to an office while avoiding the glare of the windows. Office workers can “unplug” plants from their vertical garden for use at their desks. Unlike traditional plant-care methods, water can be easily diluted and saved up to 95% by using liquid fertilizer. If you have an existing water-filtering system, you should be able to use it.
