Indoor living wall installation by Beneva Plantscapes

Epic Living Walls and Plant Frames

Vertical garden systems – those living green walls you see in interior design magazines or gracing the exterior of your favorite cutting-edge restaurant – aren’t just for looks. This unique architectural feature provides more practical benefits than you may think, positively impacting everyone from dementia patients to elementary school students and even influencing the future of agriculture (Horticulture Week notes that the UK is already considering how walls might contribute to their food supply).

Here in Sarasota, Selby Gardens plans to incorporate living walls in their ten-year, $67 million transformation, an addition that follows a city-wide trend of restaurants, businesses, hotels, homes and more greening up their vertical spaces.

Living Plants Infuse Natural Element into Sarasota New Construction

Sarasota is a town enjoying its popularity. Always known for its beautiful beaches and charming downtown, we have now been discovered for arts, culture, dining, and much more.

Here are some additional reasons you may wish to bring the outdoors in with plants, trees, and flowers from Beneva Plantscapes.
