Living Plant Walls

For a dramatic and truly environment-changing option, consider living plant walls to bring a (literal) breath of fresh air into your space. Plant walls can be as small as 2′ x 2′, or large enough to fill a wall or lobby and can be custom-designed to include unique plant specimens and blooming plants.

Living plant walls can be installed with self-contained watering systems or connected to facility plumbing and drainage systems and set up with irrigation timers. Good lighting is essential for plant health and our design team can work with you to make sure that your plant wall is provided with the best lighting possible. Our plant walls are maintained by our expert horticulturalists, keeping them lush and lovely year-round.

Looking for something less permanent? Mobile plant walls can be stunning and functional space dividers. They are self-contained living plant walls, with irrigation and lighting included.

Replica Plant Solutions

Replica plants are an excellent alternative if you have limited light or maintenance access. They also make striking additions to moss walls, creating dimension and texture, making every moss wall one-of-a-kind. Replica plants can be used in conjunction with living plant walls as well–for tall walls with limited water access or if a specific plant choice may not be a best fit for a living wall. Replica plant design has evolved so much that it is difficult to tell whether or not it is alive!

Moss Wall Frequently Asked Questions

Preserved moss art has continued to grow in popularity over the last few years–for good reason!

No! Our moss products are preserved and/or dried. Our suppliers ethically grow and sustainably harvest the real, living moss, and then preserve and dye it with nontoxic resins. That being said, the concept of biophilia suggests that moss walls are just as effective as live plants in allowing humans to feel closer to nature.

Since they are preserved, moss walls do not need light- in fact, the colors are subject to fade if they are in constant direct sunlight. Artificial lighting will not affect the moss, so you are welcome to add some dramatic lighting to showcase your piece!

Nope! Because the moss is preserved, it does not need water to survive. Reindeer moss stays fluffy by taking up moisture from the air. In drier months (Winter) it is possible for moss to get slightly “crunchy” to the touch due to a lack of humidity in our inside air. This will not affect the moss itself in the long run, and it will regulate itself back to normal on its own.

No! Because of the preservation process, our mosses do not need water and
they do not have soil. There is nothing left to attract insects.

Moss walls do not require regular maintenance! To keep it looking its best, make sure to avoid any direct contact with heating or air conditioning vents as this can damage moss pieces. Also be sure to not touch the moss! This may cause colors to fade and pieces to eventually fall off. Oakland Green Interiors offers a “checkup” service where one of our designers will come out to fine tune your moss art. We ensure that all pieces are securely in place, touch up any areas that need new moss, and remove any dust particles with canned air.

There is no straightforward answer to this question since moss walls are still fairly new, but there is no defined lifetime for a preserved moss wall. Industry experience has shown that most moss art can last up to ten years before needing a professional touch-up, but this greatly depends on the types of mosses used, the humidity in the environment, and whether or not the art is within human reach (at risk of being touched).

Moss walls are beautiful in large, commercial spaces, but equally as beautiful in homes. A custom moss wall is a piece of art that can be appreciated almost anywhere. However, dry areas are a no-go. We avoid installing moss walls near heating/air conditioning vents, as the constant blowing air will ruin the moss. We also don’t recommend outdoor moss walls, as the colors will fade in direct sunlight and moss walls cannot be installed in places where they will get wet.
