Green Waterfalls

That’s what a building with great foliage looks like to me — a green waterfall. We don’t get to see too many buildings like these in the states — too much damageable wood & other construction materials. But here in Rome, buildings are nearly indestructible. Photo on top is a hotel that, I’m told, has a great bar on the roof. Below is a restaurant and a random balcony.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.

  1. Oh, c'est beau, Jim !!!!!!!!!


  2. It looks great – I love it. My home is also already half covered 🙂


  3. Wow, that green wall is beautiful. I wonder if it attracts a lot of bugs. I saw your post on my blog about your Amaryllis growing only leaves and no flowers. What a bummer. What causes that? Did you keep the bulb to try to get it to bloom again next year?


  4. Delphine,Merci! Ewa,I love the look of vine-covered homes but sadly, it would wreak havoc on my wooden clap-board & shingled house.MeemsNYC,Don't know about bugs — that's a good questions. Maybe all the spiders you'd find in it would kill the bugs? I hate to think about it.My amaryllis is just a bunch of big leaves. I've been told to cut it back after it seems to have hit a peak and then plant it in my spring garden. At the end of the season, next fall, I'll dig it up, bring it on for a chill then break it out again and maybe I'll have a flower stalk next year.


  5. looks great and make this different from others. But I am afraid of insects, worms and snakes 😛 . Is this style having those problems free?Thanks for sharing

  7. Waqas,No idea whatsoever.
