Frequently Asked Questions

Vertical Gardens are panels of plants, grown vertically on structures that can be either free-standing or attached to walls. Vertical Gardens are also referred to as bio-walls, green walls, living walls or ecowalls.

As we run out of green space in cities, vertical gardens can turn urban spaces back into something natural and beautiful. They can also improve air quality and provide health benefits.

The required materials are:
a) Planters.
b) Drip Irrigation System.
c) Plants.

We use our Patent Pending BIOFELT Planters for developing vertical gardens. This is a European Concept, which is even used by the inventor of Vertical Gardens – Mr. Patric Blanc.

The advantages of Biofelt planters can be checked in our brochures or website.

The weight of BIOFELT Planters is around 2kg per square feet. We have designed the planter in such a way that it is around 12mm away from the wall so that there is no risk of dampness.

Due to its sleek design, it covers only 8-9 inch of depth space from the wall including plants.

We use pre-grown plants in soilless mediums. Selection of plants for vertical gardens depend on various factors like:

a) Indoor or outdoor.
b) The direction that wall will face.
c) City to know the climate.
d) Availability of direct sunlight per day.
e) Microclimatic condition.
f) Maintenance access.
g) All seasons plant.
h) Natural air or air condition required in case of indoor walls.

We ensure that wall looks completely lush green from the 1st day of installation by using already grown & developed plants.

Irrigation of Vertical Garden can be done through Drip Irrigation System or Manually.

In the case of Drip Irrigation System, there are two options:

1. Through Inlet & Drainage Point.
2. Recirculation System.

The ‘Urban Forest’ includes all trees, vegetation, watersheds, and wildlife in our community. Tree-lined roadways, open green spaces, undeveloped forests, parks and private and commercial lands are all part of the urban forest.

Urban Forestry is the planning for, and management of trees (individually and collectively) in urban settings or developed areas. Urban Forestry advocates the role of trees as a critical component of the urban environment; i.e. Green Infrastructure.

Survival of trees depends on planting and preserving those varieties of trees which are native or indigenous to that region. Only then they will survive and blend into the ecology of the region. Oaks are preferred for the mountain terrains, peepal for the countryside and open forests, neem for urban habitats such as roads, parks, and schools. The basic thumb rule is always to plant native varieties.

The larger issue is to create an action-oriented volunteer constituency who love the Mother Earth Gaia and don’t just express their love for nature and its constituents but do something concrete, tangible, measurable in such a way that it impacts not just this generation but several generations to come in the future.

Biogas is a byproduct of the decomposition of organic matter by anaerobic bacteria. Biogas is typically composed of 60% methane and 40% CO2. It is similar to natural gas which is composed of 99% methane. Biogas is a clean and renewable energy that may be substituted with natural gas to cook, to produce vapor, hot water or to generate electricity. At room pressure and temperature, biogas is in gaseous form, not liquid like LPG (propane).

Organic waste is put into a sealed tank called a digester (or bioreactor) where it is heated and agitated. In the absence of oxygen anaerobic bacteria consume the organic matter to multiply and produce biogas.

Biogas is commonly made from animal manure, sludge settled from wastewater, and at landfills containing organic wastes. However, biogas can also be made from almost any feedstock containing organic compounds, both wastes, and biomass (energy crops). Carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids are all readily converted to biogas. Many wastewaters contain organic compounds that may be converted to biogas including municipal wastewater, food processing wastewater and many industrial wastewaters. Solid and semi-solid materials that include plant or animal matter can be converted to biogas.

Each cubic meter (m3) of biogas contains the equivalent of 6 kWh of calorific energy. However, when we convert biogas to electricity, in a biogas-powered electric generator, we get about 2 kWh of usable electricity, the rest turns into heat which can also be used for heating applications. 2 kWh is enough energy to power a 100 W light bulb for 20 hours or a 2000W hair dryer for 1 hour.

Biogas can be made at home or at a business from food waste, yard and grass trimmings, and some organic solid wastes. However, efficient use of biogas is more readily accomplished at larger scales. A typical home might cook for an hour per day on biogas from home waste sources.

Biogas production can reduce the pollution potential in wastewater by converting oxygen demanding organic matter that could cause low oxygen levels in surface waters. Nutrients, like nitrogen and phosphorous are conserved in biogas effluents and can be used to displace fertilizers in crop production.

It always costs money to get rid of waste. If it doesn’t cost you anything, you are probably creating an environmental hazard. By putting a digester in your waste treatment chain you introduce a potential revenue center.

For example, the manure is not considered to be a waste but a fertilizer on a farm. By installing a digester the farmer can profit from the biogas by reducing odors and enhancing the fertilizing value of the manure.

In an agro-food industry, the digester can be used as a primary waste treatment unit where the biogas is used to offset some energy costs in the plant and to reduce the size of the secondary waste treatment.
