An otherwise plain and simple wall is now alive, dynamic, and beautiful. Green Living Walls create a living space that accommodates to its occupants and breathes life into it.
The Aventura Green Wall is just a step in the right direction. This is an example to people to combat the harmful effects of pollution.
