Green Wall Design: Installation and Maintenance focuses on techniques, strategies, and best practices around the design, installation and maintenance of green wall systems. This course provides designers and installers with the tools and techniques to implement high quality, long lasting green walls and facades in a variety of settings. Green wall systems are complex, multidisciplinary technologies that offer a wealth of hard and soft benefits. They can enhance indoor and outdoor environments, and communicate a direct connection and interface with the natural environment. Ensuring that these systems are properly planned, implemented, and maintained is crucial to their long term success and survival, as well as protecting the superstructure on which they are installed.
