Greening Tips

Whatever you intend to green with climbing plants-- whether it is a freestanding wall, a house wall, a balcony, or a terrace roof-- selecting the most appropriate plant species (and sometimes even the right variety within the species) is always crucial. Location, light and wind conditions, as well as maintenance requirements all factor in. In addition to the individual information supplied for each climbing plant, you will find tips in this section on various topics related with "Climbing Plants and Greening." If you'd like to read about specific examples, such as the greening of a wall, garage, carport or pergola, look under our main topic section-"Ideas."
