Are moss walls only good for large spaces or businesses?

No, moss walls aren’t restricted to commercial use. Because of their flexibility, ease of installation and minimal maintenance and lower cost, they’re ideal for any home or business where one can be accommodated. For example, a 2’ x 3’ moss wall can incorporate a frame and appear as if “living art”! And they ship anywhere.

Are there any other benefits to moss walls?

A key benefit especially for an open office setting is noise reduction. Noise distraction is one of the top complaints from employees in workplace with open layouts. When scientists measure sound attenuation, they use “Noise Reduction Coefficients” (NRC) ratings, which range from 0 to 1. An NRC of 0 means that the product absorbs no sound. An NRC of 1 means that the product absorbs all sound. The higher the NRC, the better the product is at soaking up sound. Reindeer moss walls have been tested and found to have a NCR rating of .5, exceptionally efficient.

What interior design can I do with a moss wall?

The potential for design is limited only by the creativity of the people involved. Moss walls can take on many different shapes, and the moss itself can be dyed virtually any color.

Are moss walls completely maintenance-free? Really?

While moss walls don’t require ongoing care in the way of irrigation, trimming, or feeding, they do require a minimal level of attention. In addition to making sure your moss wall receives the proper amount of humidity, you should schedule an annual “tune-up” for your moss wall. Good Earth Plant Company’s horticulture technicians can check to make sure the wall is still secure and individual moss panels or pieces are all holding in place. It should be cleaned to remove any dust or random spider webs and have a fresh layer of preservative applied to keep it looking its very best.… Read More

Can I put a moss wall in a place with no light?

You CAN put a moss wall in a dark place. They don’t need light to grow. You don’t have to water them like a plant either. As long as there is enough humidity in the air, you can leave a moss wall inside in the dark for a week while you’re on vacation and it will be just fine.

Can moss walls be installed anywhere?

The short answer is nearly anywhere, but not everywhere: You can’t put a moss wall outside in direct sunlight, or it will be scorched. You can’t put a moss wall up in a dry area. Moss walls require a minimum level of humidity to look good, about 40 to 50 percent. You shouldn’t put a moss wall near heating or air conditioning vents. The blasts of hot or cold dry air will ruin it. You can’t put a moss wall where it might get wet (near running water, spigots, sinks, fountains, etc.). A moss wall only protrudes out from the wall by two to three inches, so it can fit near any space.

How much less does a moss wall cost compared to the same size living wall?

While there are a lot of factors that impact cost, such as design, transportation, and installation, in general a moss wall is less expensive than a living wall, as much as 40 percent. Where an owner also saves money is on the cost of ongoing maintenance. You cannot skimp on maintenance on a living wall, or it will look terrible quickly. A moss wall requires the proper humidity, and protection from direct sunlight. That’s about it.
