Verticalization of green spaces is an adequate way to increase vegetated surfaces with many ecological services in urban environments. Free standing living walls serve as adaptation measures for the urban heat island effect. Furthermore they create space with high amenity value and (potentially) high biodiversity and reduce noise emissions. They are suitable to re-use run-off water and evapotranspirate highly. On the contrary, with extensive vegetation they sustain also longer periods of drought.
