We make the rounds of all top events in the green building industry checking on the latest products and trends. I just returned from Longwood Gardens. The hot topic was hotter than San Diego’s last heat wave: moss walls. As Bernie Sanders might say, moss walls were YUUUUGE! It’s been a long time since everyone was this excited about a single product.
The reasons are simple. Moss walls provide all the benefits of traditional living walls and several more. They can thrive in nearly any indoor setting. Growing conditions can be far from perfect – but they don’t need any light, water or maintenance. Put a frame around them and you have art that fulfill our biophlic needs. They allow many different types of shapes and can fit into any space. Color combinations are infinite, including a lot not found in nature.
When talented designers put their creativity to work on moss walls, adding driftwood, rocks, shells, mushroom the possibilities are unlimited. See the photos here showing you several of my favorite moss walls from around the world.
