How Urban Tanks can Secure Water for Dense Vertical Gardens

By in News

Urban Tanks are a fantastic option for those who want a water storage tank but are working with limited space or in an area where space is at a high premium which is often in cities, hence the term ‘urban tanks’. Similarly, vertical gardens are the perfect way to implement eco friendly and sustainable practices in urban areas that are becoming increasingly developed and built up, without taking up too much space. Vertical greening systems are essentially a wall full of vegetation and greenery and can either be standalone or designed to form around the actual walls and structure of a building. These vertical systems combined with an urban tank are becoming an increasingly popular choice in cities all across Australia and it’s easy to understand why.

Besides the standard benefits of an urban tank such as reducing your bills and the provision of alternative water supply, combining a vertical garden with an urban tank means that you’re essentially creating an entire nutrient water cycle. Below is just a few of the amazing benefits of using your urban tank to secure water for a vertical garden:

Aesthetics

This is the perfect way to create a beautiful green space in your urban home, apartment building, or commercial space. Being in an inner-city suburb doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice having nature in your space. What’s more, including plants and greenery in your design is a timeless classic that will never go out of fashion.

Low maintenance

When using an urban tank to secure water for your dense vertical greening system, you essentially end up with a self-sufficient garden which will look luscious all year round.

Minimal space requirements

As mentioned previously, you can design both your urban tank and garden around the space that you have available to you which means that you don’t have to worry about sacrificing a large amount of space in your home or building.

Insulation

When adding a vertical garden to the walls of your home or commercial building, it adds a very effective layer of insulation to the space. Your dense vertical garden will essentially help to keep the building cool during summer and warm during winter which is highly energy-efficient and will significantly reduce your energy bills.
