Four out of five European citizens live in urban areas and their quality of live is influenced by the environmental conditions. Greening the building envelope provides important ecosystem services, improves microclimatic conditions and reduces the energy demand for air conditioning. The chapter presents research results aimed at identifying benefits and challenges of vertical greening systems. In order to evaluate if alternative low-cost and low-maintenance vertical greening systems can be developed, the case of mosses is presented.

Abstract

Four out of five European citizens live in urban areas and their quality of live is influenced by the environmental conditions. Greening the building envelope provides important ecosystem services, improves microclimatic conditions and reduces the energy demand for air conditioning. The chapter presents research results aimed at identifying benefits and challenges of vertical greening systems. In order to evaluate if alternative low-cost and low-maintenance vertical greening systems can be developed, the case of mosses is presented.
