Greener cities are here and Green Oasis takes you every step of the way in specifying Living Plant Walls that work for your space.
We sit down with Jonathan Weber, Project Manager for Meyer Design about specifying two Living Plant Walls from Green Oasis. Everything from Project intent, client expectations, challenges and the final outcome is in this three minute video.
THINGS TO KNOW
Sustainability, all-natural ingredients, alternative textiles and more are becoming best practices in consumer brands. Showcase your commitment to your values with dynamic visuals.
Creating an environment that calms and feels luxurious requires a number of elements and Living Plant Walls are a top feature. Plants indoors are shown to have positive effects and clients, shoppers, and guests including staying longer in the space and increased spending.
Creating spaces that foster employee connection and well being in a world working from home as the norm requires takes thoughtful planning and insights. Having live plants or moss walls in your offices have shown to increase focus, reduce sick days, and boost overall well being.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Green Oasis uses what’s called the POD Living Wall System. This unique modular system:

Our standard lead times fall between 6-8 weeks. Some exceptions apply, such as project scale, product availability, etc. Your project specialist will guide you through this during your project consultation.
$115 - $175
The final price is determined by the entirety of the projects needs which is reviewed with you by our Project Specialists.
This is broken down for you in our article The Cost of a Living Plant Wall if you want to learn more.
Green Oasis does provide the plants with the system. We provide an assortment of options that are best suited for a Living Plant Wall for your selection.
They are then potted into the POD Living Wall System Grow Pots and transported with your wall.
In some scenarios, we are able to source plants local to the project location, and pot them onsite.
Once the wall is installed, a trained maintenance technician will service the wall going forward. The plant maintenance covers cleaning, pruning, watering, pest control and replacements.
Living wall success is usually guaranteed by the service company, so any plant that needs to be replaced will be covered by service company without any extra surprise costs for the client
The wall is irrigated across the top POD of each column, water is run through this pipeline and it flows down through each POD, behind the locked-in plants.
Our Living Walls are plumbed in a way that allows a technician to connect a water supply to an accessible intake valve and allow it to drain back to the bottom into a catch basin or watering cart.
Although the POD Living Wall System reduces the need for plant replacements, it does happen.
Absolutely. The PODS are made from weather-treated recycled materials, and will stand up to even freezing temperatures.
There are multiple benefits to outdoor Living Walls including lowering overall building temperatures and encouraging biodiversity in urban areas.
If you are within our service areas between San Antonio, TX and Austin, TX we will offer interior plant services to provide ongoing maintenance services for your living wall.
Outside our service area, local plant care vendors to the installation should be available.
PODs are 11.875" wide, 7.32" tall, and 3.5" deep.
A licensed plumber will tap our wall into a direct point of connection. We put a pressure reducer, controller and flow valve on the irrigation line to monitor the usage and control when the wall is watered
Depending on the wall size and when the wall is designed/installed, the walls can be hooked directly up to a drain, have a catch basin or the technician can just use a catch bucket when watering the wall. Walls plumbed to a direct point of connection must have adequate drainage
PSI needs to be at least 25 PSI for a directly irrigated wall.
Pests can be a problem, yes. The Pod system does a wonderful job though of keeping debris away from the water.
This is important because some systems allow for organic matter to fall into the water and it starts to decompose - this creates a feeding ground for pests like Gnats. And if pest problems do still occur, they can absolutely be treated.

Green Walls are all the rage for interiors these days but there is more than one type of green wall. Moss Walls and Living Walls. What’s the difference and which one is right for your space?
