Societies require a comprehensive lifestyle change. House design, development and operation have significant environmental and ecological impacts. Many structures are built globally, with plenty to come. The goal is to build them with limited use of non-renewable materials, low emissions and low energy usage. Buildings use many natural resources and face many challenges. Today, in the 21st century, citizens increasingly began to understand the need for green architecture as emerging technology and innovations evolved as green buildings, such as green walls, deemed a viable solution to the issue of urban heat islands and energy-saving ideas. This research would illustrate living walls' purpose, advantages, and solutions as part of the sustainable urban environment strategy. Green vertical surfaces give the urban environment major natural, social economic advantages. Studies will also show that this modern technology is a critical part of the continuum of climate change innovation and energy crisis. Living walls use vertical surfaces for buildings. In arid settings, water evaporates less on a vertical wall than in horizontal gardens. Heat isolation, acoustic isolation, enhanced air quality, energy efficiency, contribution to betterment of human psychological aspects add it’s the benefits. Although certain issues like frequent and constant maintenance requirement, affordability, insufficient awareness and consciousness etc. affect its development and popularity.  Finally, the study summarizes with recommendations to use the living wall technique that suits the arid atmosphere as part of a sustainable urban setting plan.
