Green walls are increasingly popular in large cities, not only because of the landscaping and the decorative features they provide, but also, for the environmental and comfort benefits it generates. Due to its singularities (mainly verticality), it presents a peculiar irrigation that requires techniques and specific technologies to achieve a good distribution of water. The present work, pretend to determine the landscape coefficient (Kj), which allows to quantify the water needs of the garden for irrigation management; proposing a methodology based on the water balance, considering the equations proposed by the FAO to determine the reference evapotranspiration (ETo) and garden water requirement (ET). Obtaining as a result a variable water consumption, depending on the microclimate, with a Kj ini = 0.32 in winter, a Kj mid = 0.6 in summer and an end Kj = 0.36.
