Vertical Gardening - Green Walls and Roofs
50 Shades of Grey? 50 Shades Greyer? 200 Shades of Green.
Staring at grey walls is not that interesting and could actually not be helping your health. Living near green areas and close to nature is good for us, but this is probably something that you have known for a while. But did you know that there may be 50 shades of grey, but according to optometrists, there are 200 shades of green.
Researchers at the University of Glasgow and the University of Saint Andrews have found that living near forests and parks is good for our overall health. A study by Washington University also found that when plants were in a room, that the performance of people working on computers went up by 12%.
But what if you live in a built up area or you have little or no garden? What are the options for you?
Well, look no more, vertical gardening is here and it doesn't have to be boring or difficult. Vertical Gardening, also known as Green Walls and Roofs enables you to cover grey, unsightly walls with beautiful greenery. Use your imagination and plant climbers, put plants up the wall. You can find out more with our Green Walls and Roofs course - see the link for this and other great courses at the bottom of this page.
Who needs 50 shades of grey when you can have 200 shades of green?
