Living Wall Trend Takes Root in UK Offices

A green new trend has been sweeping Great Britain’s offices as the living wall movement begins to take root.

phs Greenleaf, which holds a royal warrant for the installation and maintenance of plant displays at Buckingham Palace, says demand for its  leafy living walls has soared in the last 12 months as more workplaces switch on to plant power.

“Living walls are becoming an increasingly integral part of any corporate and office space,” says Paul Mckeown, phs Greenleaf Managing Director. “As a company, we have seen the most growth in this customer base.

“Living walls come in a variety of different styles and also offer a range of health benefits including improved air quality, energy cost reductions, noise level reductions, improvements in employee focus and energy levels, a reduction in the build-up of dust and mould. Eye irritation is also reduced by around 30% so they’re really a powerhouse of wellness and wellbeing, in addition to being attractive and functional.”

Green walls act as an impressive feature in any type and style of space and are suited to a host of environments. php Greenleaf has designed and installed green walls across variety of industries including companies in the healthcare sector, hotel chains, corporate buildings and offices, restaurants and education facilities. In addition to the health benefits, the walls also serve as a statement feature.

Beautiful to look at, they can add texture, colour and interest to minimalist interiors and drab spaces. They are perfect in areas where space is at a premium, adding striking visual appeal without requiring an inch of floor space.

php Greenleaf has more than 25 years experience designing and installing living walls. Its plant displays are created to suit the intended environment, lighting and colour scheme. All plants are sourced from MPS certified growers, committed to sustainable CSR programs.
