Green your facade to dry-out wet walls!

...hard to believe, but true. Facade greening can dry your damp walls. While it won't replace professional, modern building drying, it surely helps. The walls of old farmhouses were at least always halfway dry as long as vine or fruit trees on the house walls prospered. Regarding greenery, for every kilo of dry plant matter, 500 liters of water are needed... as we know that a vine/tree will dry the ground searching for water, so... put it on the wall and let it pull water from there! This certainly makes one think when rennovating old houses...
