According to scientific studies, vertical greening has a positive influence on the aesthetics of a building or a place, the air quality, the climate, noise pollution, people's health and satisfaction with living conditions. This is not only scientifically proven, but is also reflected in people's perceptions. In order to show the perceptions of people, aged 20 to 70 years, in urban areas, an online survey was created and carried out in this work. With the help of the LimeSurvey program, specific questions on the subjects of optics, climate, air, noise, costs, satisfaction with living and health were asked. The results of the survey, completely answered by 287 participants and a response rate of 2.6 %, show that people perceive the positive effects of vertical greening in urban areas. The results of this work also demonstrate that the desire for vertical greening is great. 90 % of the survey participants said they would appreciate vertical greening at their location. The work illuminates further findings from the survey on the topics of air improvement, temperature reduction (both indoors and outdoors), improvement of living satisfaction and other positive properties of vertical greening. In addition, 24 scientific reports, studies and papers on the positive properties of vertical green roofs and online surveys were analyzed in this work. The reported effects and perceptions on the aesthetic effects, the thermal effects, the air-hygienic effects, the noise-reducing effects, the economic effects, the health effects and the effects on living satisfaction were compared with the survey results.
