Our nature-based solutions add an inspirational touch, upgrading any internal and external space into a haven of wellbeing.
Biofilters (also known as active living walls) use sensors to detect pollutants in the air. When pollutants are above healthy standards, the living wall reacts by increasing the plant’s ability to photosynthesize, and therefore increasing the plant’s ability to absorb more pollutants and carbon dioxide. Biofilters have been proven to absorb up to 2.3 kg of Co2 annually and produce approximately 1.7 kg of oxygen annually per square meter. Biofilters are ideal for indoor spaces.
Integrate the power and intelligence of trees and shrubs into your cityscape with our vertical forests. Using an intricate containment technology that enables small trees to thrive in a compact pot, you can fill your vertical space with these awe-inspiring plants that boast significant benefits both to health and the environment, such as air purification, absorption of CO2 emissions, reduction of the urban heat island effect, natural heating and cooling, biodiversity, and wellness-enhancement.
Commercial and residential rooftops can be greened by adding plant beds, shrubs, or lawns to an existing space, and boast vast economic, social, and environmental benefits. Greening a roof is a fantastic way to beautify a rooftop, create insulation, minimize the urban heat island effect, absorb air pollution and Co2 emissions, retain and recycle rainwater, prevent flooding, insulate sound, and more. Vertical Field offers both intensive and extensive green roof options.
Green pillars are columns that hang or stand, and are planted with unique 'crawlers' that grow enthusiastically out of pockets. This design adds a naturally beautiful and biophilic experience to outdoor spaces as the cylinder shape and green finesse increase feelings of connectedness, groundedness, and calm to any space. Green pillars are irrigated using a water efficient mist-based aeroponic method. Plants that grow inside the pillars can clean the air, absorb co2 emissions, produce oxygen and much more.
Vertical Field’s patented technology has been developed from over 14 years of experience and is designed for maximum benefits and minimal maintenance.

FAQ Active Living Walls
Our unique growing platform and monitoring system significantly lower the frequency of maintenance as compared to other existing solutions. Routine upkeep usually varies between once a month to once every three months.
Upkeep includes occasional trimming, and some plants require bi-annual replacement.
Air-purifying plants such as English ivy, snake plants, spider plants, broad lady palms, weeping figs, and Chinese evergreen are typically planted on our green walls. Other good indoor vertical growing plants include vines, ferns, philodendron, cacti or aloe vera; however, as our walls are customizable we also plant flowers, succulents, and many others depending on the needs and wishes of our customers.
Using biomimicry, our indoor plants receive light in a similar way to outdoor plants. Just as the sun rises and sets, and UV rays reach the plant at varying intensities throughout the day, so to our lighting comes at an angle and varies throughout the day.
Furthermore, lighting can be increased or decreased using our friendly IU platform.
Cities are known to be several degrees hotter than the suburbs, especially in the summer. Asphalt, concrete, tall buildings, cars (subways, trains, other transport), and dark rooftops all absorb heat. By contrast, green urban spaces (where there are parks, trees, and various plants) cool down cities via evapotranspiration. Vertical gardening, therefore cools down heat that is trapped, while also making efficient use of valuable urban land.
The design of buildings can retain or repel heat. Using building materials common to city structures such as concrete, brick, glass, or stone exterior walls actually retain heat in the city. By adding a living wall to the building’s exterior, you can save your building’s electricity bills year-round and work toward lowering your city’s temperature.
