Recently while doing maintenance at Camba Gardens Green Wall in Brooklyn NY, it was remarkable the impact the green walls has made on the residents. The walls needed extensive pruning and some replanting.During this process many of the residents would stop and comment how lucky they were that they had green wall in their building and that they had never seen anything like before not even in Manhattan. They expressed that they felt extremely privileged to have this vegetated wall and also thanked us for taking care of it and for giving it to them in the first place. While working the residents were excited about the prospect of being able to take some of the plant clippings and pot them to enjoy in their private residences. One of the women was waiting for clippings while we were cleaning up and realized that she may have come a little bit too late I told her we would save some the next time we came to leave them at the front desk with her name on it, she was very pleased.
Generally, the planted wall seems to have a very positive impact in the residents, so much so that they want to take extend the comfort of the plantings to their own private living space.
