Beauty may be the first and most significant argument for green façades ~ for buildings both old and modern, residential and commercial, as well as for warehouses, parking garages, and so forth. Wall greening can greatly transform the aesthetics of public and private spaces. Do you know what you want to beautify? Keep exploring this Ideas section for support and inspiration!
Speaking of aesthetics is ever a bit tricky, because beauty is indeed "in the eye of the beholder." Naturally, what pleases one may not please another. Wall greening can be structured and discreet or wild and bold (or anything in between) but a certain degree of maintenance and care is always essential. Otherwise damage to your building is not unlikely, especially with vigorous climbers.
Wall greening and architecture can enhance each other! Sometimes it's the small things that make a difference, or just cosmetic corrections that beautify a facade ~ for example, a little clematis trellis. But large wall surfaces in backyards can benefit just as much. Unsightly spaces can be covered and concealed. Contrasts can be intensified or softened. And some of the monotone industrial architecture only needs some greening to appear less dense or lifeless. It is not for nothing that a certain climbing plant (silver lace vine) was given the nickname 'architektentrost' in German, which literally means 'architect's consolation'!
