Now that everyone is spending a lot more of their time indoors, having some plants to brighten up the place is a good idea. Not only do plants give you something to focus your energy on—keeping them alive takes time, but they also release some extra oxygen into the air.

There are a variety of different ways to incorporate plants into your home, such as a succulent garden or a terrarium. However, a living wall may be something you want to consider. 

The Benefits

While living walls, or green walls, create a lot of extra oxygen they also have another special function—they act as a sound absorber. If you like to play loud music or watch television with the volume turned up high, the plants will absorb all of the sound. 

Choose Your Location Wisely

If you’re ready to start your living wall, select the size you want, and the types of green plants you want to install. It’s always best to choose plants that don’t grow very tall, or you will need to trim your wall on a regular basis. The installation of a self-watering system will keep the garden green, and your home will be filled with the smell of fresh plants. Add some herbs if you want a specific scent, like mint.
