The decrease of green areas around houses leads to the increase of both in-house and out-house temperature. The development of garden nowadays brings people into developing vertical gardens to fulfill the needs of green areas. The existence of vertical gardens causes many impacts. One of them is the impact toward the temperature. However, further research is needed to determine the level of this impact. This journal aims to find the influence of exterior vertical gardens toward air temperature. This is a descriptive qualitative case study with several houses as the samples. The houses chosen as the samples are those with and without exterior vertical gardens located within similar air temperature environment. In this study, the measurement is not only conducted in the real houses chosen as the samples but also in the models of houses. Based on the results of the study, it is found that the application of vertical garden on house exterior does not only enhance esthetic values of the house but can also become the solution for the limited open green space. Moreover, the vertical garden is also functioned as natural air cooler; the decrease of the temperature in each house depends on the size of vertical garden it has.
