What are the key differences between the outdoor and indoor LiveWall systems?
When installing living walls indoors, water containment is critical:
The wall planters are rear-draining, and would include a rubber hose drain assembly to contain runoff water.
The indoor wall planters hold twice the soil volume as the standard outdoor wall planters to provide ample growing space for a wide selection of tropical plants.
In outdoor green wall applications, the designer has more options for planter size, drainage method and water delivery.
Large wall planters (recommended in hot climates and for holding larger perennials and grasses in cold climates) are available with a bottom drain or a rear drain option (when runoff water must be contained, such as over doorways or windows). These are spaced 16″ on center vertically.
Standard wall planters have a bottom drain option, and are most commonly used with annuals, edibles, succulents, and a number of cold-winter hardy perennials.
Choice of spray nozzles (typically recommended for outdoors), or drip irrigation (when site is sensitive to runoff from the plants).
