In addition to the general benefits of nature’s greenery, plants can help keep buildings and people cool, provide solar and glare control, and create visual interest. Swiss manufacturer Jakob—in business for over 100 years—produces attractive, yet rugged, stainless-steel cables and hardware that can be used to create durable trellis systems for seasonal or permanent vegetation that can screen and shade facades, roof areas, patios, or other outdoor (or indoor!) spaces. A trellis system can also make the most of small growing areas. The company provides helpful information on system design, plant selection, upkeep, and maintenance.
