Looks a lot better than an ugly concrete wall.

Is the grass greener on the other side, though?

No way that's America. We don't believe in unnecessary beauty.

The most important part, for me, is how they do it:

Beats hell out of the inevitable graffiti.

Wonderful and it got Lil'Pete thinking this morning.

I love it. It might only have a small impact on air quality, but it would also have a big impact on noise, and would help reduce heat in summer.

This is the way we do it in California.

This is how it's done in Oregon...naturally

In this political environment, people would ask "How will we pay for the water? How can we afford someone to water it?"
infinite monkey Wednesday Nov 16 11:15 AM
I was thinking that too, Spexx. THE COST THE COST...are these shovel-ready jobs? Who's paying for it. Huh? Who?

And local plants would help. Unfortunately, they're not usually the prettiest.

Moss or lichen might be easy enough to start IM.

Would it speed up the dacay of the concrete wall behind it? Especially if there are cracks the water can sep into, and then roots can grow into.

how the hell would you cut that ???

So, if we stuck roller skates on the bottom of a helicopter and then put it on a treadmill, would it mow a vertical garden?
