The first wall garden system listed in the mindful MATERIALS (mM) database
Though plant and flower preservation techniques are as early as the history of man, rapid expansion with patents for large-scale industrial production of preserved plants and flower foliage became popular as vertical wall garden applications soared following the launch of Patrick Blanc’s invention concept ‘Mur Végétal’ in 1998.
To begin the preservation process, plant and flower foliage is harvested at its peak to attain maximum vibrancy. Once harvested, a non-toxic, plant-based and biodegradable preservation liquid is used to replace the plant sap. Garden on the Wall ingredients are supported by the Health Product Declaration (HPD) and completed in accordance with HPD Standard Version 2.0. They are listed in the mindful MATERIALS database (mM).
Preserved Plant Advantages
Maintenance-free and long lasting:Garden installations created with preserved plants require no water, no misting or irrigation, no sunlight and no soil, but retain their vibrancy, fresh-cut look and feel for nearly a decade
Excellent Value: Garden installations provide excellent value because they allow integrating ‘Maintenance-free Nature’ to interior designs, allowing significant savings from not having the monthly maintenance required for living walls such as gardening and the hardware upkeep
Ecological: Garden installations are much more efficient than living walls and plants due to their longevity and low energy consumption, such as no water irrigation, specific light, soil infestations, trimming and pruning and periodic maintenance. This results in a significantly lower carbon footprint when compared to both fresh-cut and artificial plants
Sound Absorbing Properties: Tested in accordance with ASTM C423-9a, the wall garden installations have significant noise reduction coefficient (NRC)
Endless Possibilities: Whether it’s a custom planter insert, wall or ceiling garden or a custom-shaped garden integrating a logo, the versatility of elements available for the creation garden installations allow to integrate ‘Maintenance-free Nature’ seamlessly into built environments
Design Integration Ease: With an average depth of 3 inches for vertical applications, integrating The Art of Preserved Nature® is as simple as adding a picture frame – essentially creating framed art to the biophilic design canvas.
