Vertical Garden Design Transforms Your Living Space

Indoor Vertical Garden Design at Home – Why You Need a Vertical Wall Garden to Add Colour and Texture to Your Living Space

In many parts of the world, summer may be on the edge of becoming a distant memory, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have that zesty, summer feel inside or around your home. A vertical garden can really make your living room reverberate with positive vibes and add texture through artificial greenery.

What is an Artificial Vertical Garden?

A Green vertical wall or garden vertical wall is a vertical structure which houses different varieties of plants or flowers, or both.

Thanks to a population that’s quickly becoming environmentally aware, interior plant vertical gardens are gaining popularity. Artificial plants, foliage and greenery are a prized solution for designers, interior landscapers and those looking to give their homes a green and serene vibe.

Artificial greenery walls require no drainage or irrigation at all and occupy a lot less space edging outward from the wall, which can save interior floor space costs. They are typically mounted onto light and nimble steel frames and easily transported in panels and sections. Planting is done in a way that meets every designer’s or customer’s specification, providing just the right mix of colours, shapes and patters.

Vertical wall gardens are the latest thing nowadays – do not be surprised to see more homes and offices ditching sprawling conventional gardens in favour of a green vertical wall.

Go with a vertical garden system and you do not even need a very large outdoor or indoor space to put your personally chosen handiwork on display.

Still Not Convinced?

Here is how a vertical wall garden can really breathe new life and vigour into your indoor or outdoor living space:

Protect Your Home’s Exterior

An outdoor vertical garden designer can help shield your living space by fighting off harsh weather and ultraviolet rays. This can especially be helpful if you have rainy weather almost half the year. A green vertical wall will protect your home’s paint-job and finish in the long run and eliminate the need for frequent maintenance. Make sure your vertical garden design is UV rated according to UK industry standards, ISO 9001 certified and comes with a 3 year guarantee.

Speaking of outdoor vertical gardens, place one outside your window and you are not only getting privacy from curious passers-by but also complementing the beautiful, lush greenery in your front yard. Plant your vertical garden on a support structure surrounding objects such as an outdoor heater tank or electric meter to protect it from unnecessary wear and tear. Or, add one to your gate to enjoy even more privacy and aesthetic appeal.

Redesign and Give That Bland Wall Some Substance and Character

Don’t have a fancy painting to put up on that big bland wall that stands out awkwardly in the living room? Frame and hang your favourite indoor vertical garden on the wall, sit back and enjoy as the guests can’t stop talking about how ravishing it looks

You might be looking at a small patio surrounded by high walls. This certainly feels limiting if the surrounding walls are somewhat dull and drab, doesn’t it? Add an outdoor vertical garden and admire rows of plants stretching out to not only hide the bland looking wall but also create a focal point.

Give Your Outdoor Space a More Expansive Feel

Plants have the tendency to blur boundaries running alongside fence lines, giving you a generously open feeling in a walled garden. Why not add potted plants greenery in the form of large planters and a vertical garden design to create several layers of greenery in your yard?

Vertical Gardens can be Your Gateway to the Outdoors

Sometimes, getting yourself to break away from an indoors routine can be tough, especially if you’re used to working from home. A vibrant and inviting vertical green garden that’s clearly visible from your living room window can be a wonderful and illustrious way to make the indoor to outdoor transition. Just one look at the lush foliage beaming in the sunlight, can be enough to take that morning cup of coffee with you out under the open sky.

Have a Little Taste of the Outside Indoors as You Relax

Ever wondered what it would be like to have your own green indoor sanctuary? An interior plant vertical garden can serve as a lush, attractive-looking wall in your bathroom, right next to the bath tub. You won’t have to worry about humid conditions ruining the texture on the artificial greenery as you create a mild, almost spa-like atmosphere for relaxing in the tub.

In fact, give into a little escapism by designating a room in your home that only has vertical gardens on all four walls. No technology, no noise or outside disturbances. As it turns out, "escapism” has become quite the trend in 2017 according to design experts. So go ahead and enjoy your yoga and therapy sessions in this room, taking in the calm atmosphere as every nerve in your body relaxes and unwinds.

No Pests, No Worries, Just Lush Greenery

The thing about artificial vertical gardens is that they require virtually no maintenance. You don’t have to worry about exposing them to UV light or watering them from time to time. They maintain the same vibrant colour year in and year out. So if you happen to suffer from arthritis or any condition that prevents you from performing laborious work, here is another added bonus.

Perhaps the best part about installing a vertical garden London is that you get the benefits of a living green vertical wall but none of the drawbacks or annoyances that come with it such as bugs or other garden pests. An actual vertical garden system is practically like one big beach party for insects, birds and a number of outdoor and indoor "crawlies”. You certainly don’t want to deal with that when the entire family is over for Thanksgiving dinner. What’s more, you also get to keep the air in your indoor space allergen free.

Enjoy Unique Aesthetics and Other Health Benefits

Artificial greenery does not only add zeal and highly personalized aesthetic appeal to your living space but also offer certain health benefits. For one, seeing even a hint of nature right after you wake up can have very positive and relaxing psychological effects on your well-being. Many studies have attested to the fact that people who are regularly in touch with nature generally feel better and at ease throughout the day as opposed to people who are cooped up in a cubicle all day with nothing but a blank wall keeping them company.

Final Thoughts

Artificial greenery is a decorative art form and becoming very popular with interior designers. They offer a multitude of benefits to improve your living conditions and boast the beauty of a living vertical garden, while you have absolutely nothing to worry about in terms of care and maintenance. All you need to do is wipe off your vertical wall garden with a soft, clean cloth from time to time, to keep them looking new.

Hide any unsightly objects around your home or office such as propane tanks, hydro meters, air conditioner units, anything that does not appeal to the sights and senses. Perhaps this is why you see beautiful patterns of artificial greenery around offices, typically hospitals, to liven up the mood of those visiting.

Give your property that attractive curb appeal by having a gorgeous, natural-looking vine bordering around your property’s key structures. Since there is no maintenance involved, you have even more time to enjoy the sights and sounds inside and around your home.

Artificial greenery can always be designed to meet your specific needs as well as space limitations. Have them custom build according to your interior or exterior décor, and your own personal preferences.

You should always invest your time and energy in a highly skilled and experienced horticultural designer who understand the intricacies involved in installing artificial vertical walls. Let Vistafolia artificial plant creations be your product of choice.

Fantastic service and quality thrilled with my green wall

The Vistafolia panels and colour boxes have created a beautiful garden feature from what was previously a brick wall 'eye-sore' (see before photo). Excellent delivery times and brilliant customer service, so pleased we have just ordered some more!

I am absolutely obsessed with my purchases from vistafolia. I ordered 2 boxes of flowers to fill my window boxes. The quality is incredible. They look so real and even smell like a garden centre. The customer service is fantastic and I will definitely be ordering some more soon.

Thrilled! Looks absolutely fantastic and has surpassed my expectations. Makes such a difference looking out from my study onto a balcony with greenery rather than metal panels! Ric’s suggestion for the white colour box was spot on – really lifts the greenery. Installation process was seamless and the guys were great. Highly, highly recommend.

Very helpful and very professional! Thank you for my wonderful panels!

I got curious with the adds on fb about vertical garden wall by vista folia.. i researched with other competetor but vista folia captured my attention with its realistic foliage and it would be a great addition to my garden...it really lookes beautiful in contrast with the real plants i have.. it made it complete...i will have another part of the garden to be installed ... thanks to tim who i always communicate with if i have queries he's always accomodating... thank you vista folia... my wife love it too...

Amazing company! We have just installed 2 plant walls in our new office. Fantastic quality and mega responsive/organised team when it comes to each step of the process. Highly recommend.

Great product, excellent customer service, and professional skilful installation. Very happy to recommend.

Check out the website. So realistic

Brilliant service. Flexible, friendly and creative. And fabulous product. Transformed our terrace completely. The hedge looks stunning, the colour boxes being a beautiful feature.

To say I’m happy is an understatement! I found the perfect look I needed for my outside shower. I can’t recommend Vistafolia enough. The service I received was impeccable. A special shout out to Tim who explained the product so well, Ric who came out to the property to show me the product and measure up the area, and last but not least the installation team Dan and Nick who were excellent . They explained each step and also made sure I was happy with the end result. A smooth, stress free installation and any questions asked along the way was happily answered and explained. No hassle! What more can one ask for! I almost bought elsewhere until I came across this company who thankfully advised me that they could install this type of artificial living wall with a metal back frame to the size I required unlike the advice I got elsewhere. I’m so thankful that I didn’t buy a cheaper option out there as I really wouldn’t have achieved this look! Thank you!

Amazing product, pre-sales and installation services. Very courteous team who were respectful of our home throughout. Meticulous and careful installation. Could not be happier with outcome, service and product.

Vista Folia have been extremely helpful throughout and provided us with an excellent product. We throughly enjoyed bringing the wall to life with these amazingly convincing boxes full of foliage and the final outcome was stunning! Very happy client!

My Vistafolia green wall looks fantastic. I have to remind myself it's not real! It has transformed a boring brick wall which I look out onto while I'm washing up into something lovely. Very good customer service too - well-informed and helpful.

thanks for the great job

The team was fantastic. They arrived on time. It was raining, but they worked through the rain and did a fabulous job. Had some trouble with my neighbour and they went above and beyond to sort that out and make her side look pretty too. Would recommend them any day.

Extremely happy with the final product and service provided by Vistafolia in particular a big thank you to Ric and Tim. The project was delayed but throughout the whole process the team were great and supportive- answering my many questions will very sensible options. The final result is impressive and we have added our personal touch with a Ganesh statue that looks sublime.

Great company, very professional and efficient. I am very happy with the final result. I recommend.

We found Vistafolia's Lush Green green wall product to be of the highest quality. It was naturalistic and easy to install. Customer service was excellent and the end result is very impacting. It was key that the product had a good fire rating and clear supporting documentation. We would use Vistafolia and their products again.

Vistafolia did an awesome job of turning my small yard into a place of beauty. Amazing!

We love our Vistafolia wall! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them, very helpful and speedy service, and the guys working on the wall were incredibly clean and polite!

Very efficient and professional from survey to installation and finished walk looks amazing

I am so thrilled that I picked Vistafolia. Our roof terrace looks amazing with the combination of the foliage panels and cedar panelling. The whole process could not have been simpler and the team worked hard and paid such attention to detail during the installation. I would thoroughly recommend them.

My experience with Vistafolia has been positive as they provided me with great service and the people we dealt with were very friendly and professional. I am happy with the outcome from Vistafolia as the packaging and the delivery was efficient and quick. I would definitely recommend this company for all your green wall needs.

The quality of the product exceeded my expectations and the customer service was outstanding. Would highly recommend.

A fantastic product and delightful service. Would highly recommend. I am now busy looking for more walls to cover!

Incredibly simple, efficient and professional team from start to finish. And what a beautiful result - no video or brochure does these green walls any justice.

Although our project was quite small in scope, the team at Vistafolia were very friendly and professional to deal with. Any questions we had were quickly dealt with and we are really pleased with the results of our green wall and garden boxes. The plants and colours look great!

We are so pleased with our Vistafolia Green Wall. It looks absolutely fantastic and has completely changed our garden. The team provided an excellent service and would highly recommend the product.

How nice it is to do business with a company that values your business; that responds promptly; whose workers turn up on time and are very polite, hard-working and courteous and whose product looks amazing. Vistafolia is one such company. The staff are amazing and we are delighted with the gorgeous transformation that the Green Wall has made to our garden.

Extremely happy with the service. We had two panels fitted and the guys couldn't be more helpful. They turned up on time and did a fantastic job with the installation. The product itself is fantastic, very realistic and no more watering. Would highly recommend Vista Folia

I have recently worked with the Vistafolia team on a couple of projects, including a contemporary domestic garden and a large central London commercial site. In both cases, the team were extremely professional, knowledgeable and reliable and I was confident that the projects were in safe hands from start to finish. With the latter commercial project, the team had to work under extremely difficult circumstances on a busy site with numerous other contractors, but remained patient, polite and focussed, even as the deadline loomed. Vistafolia is a great product, which lends itself to numerous applications and clients are always excited by the results. Big thanks to Ric and the team!

Great place

We had panels fitted onto walls at a commercial property. Vistafolia gave great customer service from the day we walked in to the showroom to after we had the foliage installed. Friendly, helpful and informed. I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat. The final finish looks excellent. We are very happy.

Vistafolia transformed our garden and we have been so pleased with the results. The team are very professional, accommodating and happy to assist with maintenance where needed. A pesky fox had caused some damage so Vistafolia despatched Ric to resolve the issue and he was incredibly obliging and got the job done efficiently and effectively! We would highly recommend them to anyone.

The team at Vistafolia were fantastic from start to finish. They came and did a site visit and explained all of my options, the sales team were friendly and didn’t try to give me the hard sell, and the installation team left me with an amazing green wall. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

The team at Vistagreen were brilliantly responsive and so quick to sort out what we needed. The process went smoothly from start to finish and the completed product looks fantastic. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Great communication and customer service throughout the sales process, and the product is excellent quality and looks fantastic. Really pleased with the result.

Just wow! The green wall has transformed a dismal space. Great service, I totally recommend this product & company

From start to finish the customer care was outstanding with immediate responses to my questions via email and the telephone. The quality of the product and the effect when finally put in place was superb, a visual delight. A five star company one I will certainly be using again.

These look so real! We have put some panels up in our home gym and they look great.

It has been a delight dealing with VistaGreen from beginning to end of the project. Fast and accommodating team who delivered a great finished result. Extremely happy with our new office decoration.

Quick turnaround, very accommodating, fantastic high quality product, friendly customer service

Great product and service :)

I spent a lot of time researching for a Vertical Garden, and finally decided on using Vista Green. Before I proceeded, I went to their Offices/Store Warehouse to double check the quality etc. I dealt with Tim, who was so helpful, knowledgeable and patient, and offered an on-site Survey, which I accepted. The Surveyor, Rik, was professional and he was able to sort out a quote very quickly. The Vertical Garden was installed last week, and it looks amazing. The guys fitting were an absolute pleasure to have working at your home, and we are so happy to have had chosen Vista Green. I have absolutely no problem in recommending this Company to anyone - Thank you to all the Team!

Great product. Great result. Looks fab.

Quite honestly, it took me FOREVER to track down a company who could build a feature plant wall in my home. Once I emailed and spoke to VistaGreen, I knew that regardless of my budget, whatever they quoted for my feature wall, I would do whatever I could to make it work. This was down to not only the quality and variety of foliage offered, but because both Tim and Ric from the sales team took their time with me, worked with me budget wise, and using the image of the space I had previously sent to them, gave me digital images of what the wall would look like!! Additionally, VistaGreen accommodated an early installation, meaning that within days, my vision had come to life! I really appreciated their willingness and flexibility. From inception to completion I enjoyed my journey with VistaGreen and I’m almost sad that there is nothing left to do (for now! Lol) I can whole heartedly recommend them to anyone thinking of having such a special luxury feature in (or out) of their home!

Really happy with our new green wall, it has transformed our basement completely. The work took place over 3 days, the workmen were polite, professional and we would highly recommend the company

I've recently installed VistaGeen green wall panels in a garden design scheme set within a timber frame and they look great - very realistic and none of the hassles of irrigation and plant failure associated with real living wall. Most importantly, the client loves it too! Great product

Great and professional service once again. Very accommodating given the changing weather and site conditions.
