SemperGreenwall in Warsaw, PolandYes! Outdoor green walls can thrive, even in cold climates like Chicago, Toronto, or Montreal! Maintaining an outdoor vertical garden or green wall is more challenging than maintaining an indoor green wall. Especially when exposed to extreme weather conditions, with freezing cold weather, snow or temperature swings. Numerous outdoor green wall systems have failed under these conditions, reason for which people conclude outdoor green walls in cold climates are impossible. The Outdoor SemperGreenwall definitely is one that can survive. We guarantee it.

Outdoor Systems for the US and Canada

As a worldwide market leader in green wall systems, Sempergreen is aware of the challenging climate conditions across the US and Canada. An outdoor living wall system must be able to withstand both hot and dry summers as well as rainy winters with temperatures beyond freezing point.

With over 20 years of experience, Sempergreen has gathered valuable experience to develop a system that is perfectly able to withstand any sort of climate conditions: from hot to freezing cold. Choosing the right plants is crucial in order to avoid cold damage and dying of the vegetation. However, the requirements go beyond plant species: protection of the roots, anti-freeze protection and a smart watering system are needed to succeed.
