Living Walls

The idea of using creepers to cover walls is not new, but in recent decades, the tendency to use building surfaces to place plants has been developing all over the world and shows that there are many ways to make cities greener. There are vertical gardens that give life to walls, roofs, and other coverings (like underground garages on which vegetation is placed) where  green carpets are appearing.

This is a turning point, as currently “public policies as well as the private economy in the real estate sector are pulling green.” In European policies and the government program in Portugal, solutions based on nature, namely green roofs and vertical gardens, appear as part of the decarbonization strategy. And the intentions are translated into concrete measures.
