Beauty - Wall greening is attractive.

Beauty - an old-fashion word... But isn't it an argument for green façades, maybe even the first and most important? This counts for old and new buildings. And not only private and business buildings. Also warehouses, parking garages and so on. Wall greening can improve private as well as public areas. The area Ideas and this page is meant to help you right from the start!

Wall greening versus Architecture

It is always risky to speak of beauty. For "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". So, somebody liking something doesn't automatically mean someone else likes it as well. Wall greening can be mild and structured or wild and unkempt. However, to a certain degree, maintenance and care are essential. Otherwise damage occurs and needs to reckoned with. So, wall greening and architecture can agree. Sometimes it's the small things that make a difference. For example a little Clematis trellis. B. ein kleines Clematis-Spalier. But also large wall surfaces in backyards can be made prettier by greening up. Ugly spaces can be covered and concealed. Contrasts can be intensified or softened. And some of the monotone industrial architecture only needs some greening and they are less hard to look upon.
