Whereas once the greening of buildings was left largely to nature, modern construction materials and methods make the practice more scientific, sustainable and long lasting – ensuring that the benefits derived are not at the expense of the integrity of the building structure.
Our proven system uses a combination of high-quality stainless steel ropes, rods and mesh to create an elegant, sustainable and cost effective green wall solution.
Unlike modular systems the Jakob green wall system is lightweight, easy and fast to install. Our Green wall systems supports new plants which are planted on site. Typically for a square meter of coverage, the system weights only 20-30kg when planted.
Plants can either be grown up green wall systems or cascaded down. In either case maintenance is simple and straightforward and is carried out at the planter level. Our systems not only offer a sustainable solution but are also energy efficient in production. Our range accounts for very little embodied energy per square meter of building. The system is completely recyclable at the end of its useful life.
Green wall structures create unique designs even before schemes are fully planted. The combination of steel rod, rope and Webnet provide elegant design options, giving additional texture to facades and providing strong shadow definition.
The Jakob green walls product range is backed by a full technical support package. Assisting architects, developers and contractors in selecting the best system to meet their aesthetic and performance needs. We also supply a complete design, supply , fit and maintenance service.

In 2019 National governments and local authorities are increasingly taking measures to improve air quality in towns and cities, with air pollution widely recognised as the most significant environmental risk to human health in the UK, and the fourth biggest threat overall - after cancer, heart disease and obesity. DEFRA published its ‘Clean Air Strategy’ that laid out a series of goals and actions required to achieve them, including the reduction of toxic pollutants like nitrogen oxides, pa...

A new public Atrium, built to link seven buildings on Binney Street in Boston Massachusetts with a large public park, has now opened. The Atrium which features three Jakob Webnet structures, has been constructed in the centre of the group of buildings, with the architects designing the new open space to allow access through the site from neighbouring buildings to the new park. The Atrium is designed to feel like an extension of the exterior landscape design at the ground floor, with natural...

What are the benefits of vertical planting? Vegetation provides a multitude of environmental and social benefits including improving air quality, reducing pollutants in run-off, reducing noise, creating a habitat for wildlife and reducing flood risk (e.g. by retaining rainfall within soils and canopy). There are also well documented physical and psychological health benefits. Vegetation can cool the air within and surrounding masonry by providing shade, evapo-transpiration (leaf respiration of...
