I'm living life fully despite chronic disease. Love; an adventure a day, Wild Nature art, short verse, Florida, plants, green roofs, living walls & permaculture gardens, swamps, beaches, native plants, wildflowers and friends. Come explore real life and learn about community sustainability through nature, art, chronic disease lifestyle management & urban sustainability.
Yesterday we posted a note about a struggling living wall. Yet living walls, if planned properly, can be easy too.
Ficus punila, living wall Tallahassee
Florida Living Wall, Low maintenance
Living walls such as those pictured here provide many benefits, including; stormwater attenuation, urban heat island effect mitigation, carbon sequestration, air purification, beauty and wildlife habitat.
This particular wall provides a home to a large population of our native Florida Anoles. Florida Anoles need vertical green above one meter or so to escape the larger, more predatory Cuban Anole and themselves are an important pest control species as their diet includes flies, roaches and other bugs.
