From the Forum: Adding Some Greenery to a Brownstone Facade

Photo by Susan De Vries


    Looking for some summer greenery, a homeowner is hoping to find a vine that will provide some color without harming the facade of their home. The vine would be planted in a container and ideally would spread itself up the wall. Should the homeowner provide a trellis or support so the vine doesn’t attach directly to the brownstone? What climbers have other homeowners grown successfully?

    Please chime in with your advice.
