Modern 'Garden House': Living Green Walls Gone Wild

green living wall outsideWe have all seen ivy winding its way up the outside surface of an aged brick building or wrapping its way up an attached wall trellis, but what if you implemented this on a whole-home scale and planned this process from the very start and designed it to encompass your entire living environment?

It will of course also help camouflage the home and provide privacy for the residents – a great living green wall with sustainable and aesthetic benefits (literally) all around.
