Green the house wall


Greening the house wall and thus beautifying the facade is the trend. But greening doesn't just have advantages and you have to find the right plants.

You probably know the picture of a green house wall. Whether ivy or wine, which by the way is one of the most commonly used greenery plants, the facade gets a striking character. But it's not just the look that is the reason why homeowners want to green their facade. It is often also a financial aspect because the greening acts like a kind of insulation. In addition to the advantages, you also have to consider that more insects than usual will be guests in your apartment. Because the more green, the more insects find a new home in it.

With what greening the house wall?

You have two options when choosing the right plants. Either you work with trellises, which probably cannot be used to furnish the entire house, but only up to a certain height. Or you can choose plants with adhesive roots that attach themselves to the wall and, if not cut, can green the entire house.

Greening the house wall: pros and cons

If you prefer something natural in your house instead of clinker bricks or rough plaster, the facade greening is the ideal choice. Even bumps or imperfections, especially on old buildings, can be wonderfully covered thanks to greenery. Experts are not entirely in agreement as to whether the greening of the house wall is a good substitute for insulation. It is a fact, however, that tendril plants, the denser they grow the better, act as a warming cushion and ensure cool rooms in summer.

Not to underestimate

Please keep in mind that you have to remove the entire plant when renovating. In addition, the adhesive roots can adhere to the surface in such a way that they are very difficult to remove and residues remain on the facade. But all of that certainly outweighs the prospect of a green house, doesn't it?
