Soundproofing with Wall Gardens

Not everyone really wants to spend the time and money to soundproof his home. Individuals who own their own property with a yard may find that building a wall garden is an incredibly beneficial alternative to commercial soundproofing.

Consider building a wall garden to be a natural or “green” alternative. If you build a wall of vine, trees, bushes, and plants around your home you will not only find yourself surrounded by beautiful scenery but will benefit from the natural sound barrier as well.

Wall gardens have a number of other benefits, too. They not only block sound but if they are close to the house can help keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. During the summer months you may find that the wall garden helps to cool you as you work outside due to the evaporative effects of the plants.

Building a wall garden is an amazing alternative, especially for those who love gardening to begin with. Imagine being able to beautify the outside of your home while building a natural sound barrier at the same time!
