Now urban businesses and colleges are seeing the numerous benefits of installing these green walls in their lobbies and entranceways. From health and wellness reasons to aesthetics; vertical gardens are becoming the norm. Cost, time, expense and space may deter most of us from having a gigantic plant wall in our home, but that doesn't mean we can't mimic the style. How about living green art on a smaller scale?
