Not long ago I posted an entry about Roof Gardens and the potential benefits one could expect from “greening” the rooftops of large buildings, and even your own home.
Expand that idea to your walls. That’s right, living walls. Well, only the outside fascia, the walls are still structural and practical from a traditional standpoint, but they have a covering of plants! The plants help regulate the indoor temperature, and help out with the outdoor temperature as well. This saves heating and cooling costs, removed carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, adds oxygen and nitrogen to the air, and just looks cool!
