Frequently asked questions
A Greenwall is a hanging vertical garden using live plants.
Using a wall bracket our patented pods are clipped onto the walls. View this quick video for further info.
Plant selection is based on whether your Greenwall is internal or
external, the aspect, wind, hours of sun and shade as well as the
regularity of maintenance.
For indoor Greenwalls, we regularly recommend Anthyrium,
Spatphylium, Nephrolepsis (Fern) and Philodendrum. Bromeliads also
For External Greenwalls, we will often use Native Violets, Dichondra
( Silver Falls ), Trailing & Flowering Succulents, Alternanthera, (Party
Time) , Liriope, Tri Colour Jasmine, Phildendron Xanadu and Westringia.
Most type of succulents also love Greenwalls.
Plants with a shallow root structure are better suited to our Green4Air
Some edible plants we use in our Greenwalls include Native Violets
(Viola hederacea) and Edible Berries ( rhipsalis baccifera)
Herbs like Thai Basil, Thyme, Vietnamese Mint, Basil, Chives, Oregano
and Thyme can all be grown in a Greenwall as long as they are well
The compost selected for each plant depends on the individual plant
Each of our growers uses a specialty blended potting mix most suitable
for their particular Greenwall plant species. We recommend a good high
end quality potting mix which maintains a good balance between holding
moisture and draining well. Soil is not always suitable to use in PODS as
soil texture can vary greatly. Generally a potting mix based on recycled
organic materials is ideal for Greenwall PODS. Best to check with your
nursery based on the plants you select for your Greenwall. Each of our
PODs holds 700cc of compost and 50ml of water.
Our PODS are suitable for 100-140mm Plants.
We usually plant 125mm Plant Species.
If using our Green4Air, Back wall plates, you will need 44
PODS per square metre.
Use our POD CALCULATOR to guide you on the quantity you require.
2 Green4Air Pods are designed to hang on 1 Green4Air Back Wall Plate.
The PODS are 140mm wide x 200mm high.
Allow a depth of 150mm from the POD hook to the front, allowing for
plant foliage to hang over.
Each POD holds 700cc of compost and 50ml of water.
Our Greenwall PLATES are 300mm wide x 200mm High x 12mm thick.
The plates can be easily snapped in ½ should you need to re-size to
achieve your end design. 2 Pods are designed to hang on 1 Plate.
Our Greenwall-Solutions Back Wall Plates have been designed to make
Greenwalls easy to install for DIY users. From a commercial
perspective, their strength lies in their ability to create non-linear lines.
As they require more fixings that most other substructures, our SkALE
Plates are more suitable to being attached to non-masonary surfaces
such as timber, and blue-board. If you have any questions on the
suitability of your substructure for our Plates, please contact us.
Allow a depth of 150mm from your Greenwall backing substructure to
the front of the POD hook. This includes some space for the plant foliage
to hang over.
