Benefits of these structures are numerous. Studies in Oregon demonstrated that non-vegetated areas can exceed temperatures of 50 °C (122 °F) in July while vegetated areas remain at 25 °C (77 °F) (Luvall and Holbo, 1989). Green walls have been shown to reduce temperature fluctuations at the wall surface from 5 to 30 °C (41 to 86 °F). Street-level air pollution can be reduced by as much as 40 percent for nitrogen dioxide and 60% for particulate matter at the source, and by as much as 75 percent downwind of large green walls. Green walls that use appropriate plants can act as natural “bio-filters” for some volatile organic carbons and other pollutants when implemented as part of an integrated building strategy. Other benefits can include stormwater runoff reduction, building energy efficiency, improved interior air quality, urban agriculture, on-site waste water treatment, increased biodiversity, LEED credits, marketing and green branding, building facade protection, aesthetic improvement, noise reduction, local job creation, and ease of construction (interested in making a living wall?). In addition, vegetation in urban areas has been shown to increase mental well being, biodiversity and residential property values.
