The following information has been removed from the main Living wall article:

In fantasy settings, Living Walls can also be made from animal cells too, creating a horrifying mass of flesh instead. This is the signature work of a necromancer. It may or may not be dangerous.

This information has been removed on the grounds of irrelevancy in accordance with the official wikipedia policy found at Wikipedia:Editing policy. The information is irrelevant in the context of an article located in the categories of Gardening / Urban studies and planning. This information is preserved here on the discussion page to facilitate its reintegration by interested parties into a more relevant location. A more relevant location is the existing page Necromancy (fiction) or a more relevant page could be created at Living wall (necromancy). Alternatively a subheading of Living Walls in Fiction could be created and examples of Living walls in fiction of the kind dealt with by the main body of the article should be added in order to make a reintroduction of the information slightly less irrelevant.

Is there any threat of developing excessive fungal growth on the wall and causing mold/ dangerous air? I like the idea of curing "sick building syndrome". What kinds of insects, grubs, and worms are permitted? Hmmm could you grow snap peas this way, or tomatoes, or cornichons?

There will be tomatoes and peppers being grown in a wall in Leamington Ontario indoors. In Vancouver there is already an outdoor vertical garden with food grown —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:57, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

There is definitely a cause of concern for fungal growth, sure there are more research about it that I can add into. Careful planning and pretty much anything can grow on these. There are some vertical gardens being grown on the USC Campus and much more examples. Chowaustin (talk) 22:33, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

Green Wall vs. Living Wall[edit]

This article was named Living Wall, which I found to be an inaccurate description of the technology available. The title Green Wall allows this article to be more comprehensive, including "green façades" into the equation, which are far removed from the term "Living Wall".--Zippo512 (talk) 00:33, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

RfC linkspam[edit]

A number of different IP addresses from a cable internet provider in Baden-Würtemberg, Germany have repeatedly added an external link to a commercial website, namely Interestingly, that company, located in Brantford, Ontario, in Canada, also has a European subsidiary in the area serviced by the ISP in Baden-Würetmberg. I have reverted the addition of what, in my mind, is simple linkspam on each occasion and I have also left, again on each occasion, a uw-coi notice on the talk page of each of the anon IP addresses. The reason I'm posting here is because I want to ensure that I am not under a misapprehension and that the community agrees with my assessment that that commercial link is inappropriate under one or more of WP:LINKS, WP:SPAM and WP:COI. — Dave (Talk | contribs) 20:39, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Le Mur Vegetal[edit]

This article doesn't mention Patrick Blanc and his Mur Vegetal. Maybe he is unknown in Anglo-saxon world, but as the matter of fact he chooses not to use climbing plants - and the plants are not in soil. Special light plastic elements mounted in frames on the facade take over the mechanical aspect of soil function, and with water and fertilizer.

The name: Le Mur Vegetal is quite widespread and used in the indurty all over the world (not 'green facade' - as the article mentions and which is misleading). Please amend it and include more international projects. Also, you may take a look what the Japanese are doing.

Thank you.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:37, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

I've added a tag for non-international coverage issues. Please feel free to join in the editing process and improve this article yourself. :) -- Quiddity (talk) 16:39, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Modular lining wall component[edit]

I removed a mention of a system called ""Modular living wall component" since it is supported only by a patent. I'd like to see a real product or secondary sources before we include it. Jojalozzo 19:15, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

Merge from living wall[edit]

Living wall includes hedges but is otherwise about green walls. I think mention of hedges here would be sufficient to implement a merge of the two articles. Jojalozzo 15:48, 18 March 2012 (UTC)


Appearantly there are 2 types of living wall: without and with a substrate. I'm not sure what the first one is (I'm assuming this is the "loose media" type described here. The most used substrate is sphagnum.

Living walls can be made using a pallet[1], using a metal grating dressed with a jute mat and filled with potting soil, using a EPDM plastic with felt matting, sacs with potting soil and a irrigation system, or using a commercial (and often modular) system[2][3] (talk) 13:34, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
