Greening Concepts for Buildings

There are many possibilities for and sometime conflicting perspectives on how to green the walls of a building, where and which plants should be planted: trellising a few small climbing plants, completely covering a facade, installing planters or flowerbeds of greenery in front of a facade, small or large and high or low surfaces can be greened (all addressed in the first four sections to follow)... In contrast to traditional methods, the following fifth and sixth sections address more modern options, like the modular green 'vertical garden' often popular in Asia. In the following subsection of Ideas, we'll introduce you to ways of greening different parts of a building.
