THE FINE ART OF
OF GREEN WALLS

WRITTEN BY RANDY SHARP, FCSLA, GRP
I was born in the woods of upstate New York surrounded by massive
beech, maple and oak trees. Me Tarzan, and Jane my neighbor, would
swing from tree to tree on grape vines (Vitus riparian). Our favorite
storybooks were Katie the Snowplow, and Jack and the Beanstalk.
I was Jack. I planted the seed, watched it grow, and climbed to the top.
These early years set the stage for my professional work as a green
wall educator, designer and advocate. In this article I am offering a big
picture view of the green wall industry.
