The highly customizable walls include waterproofing systems and a tank, a pump, and felts designed to sustain growing plants for years and protect the structure beneath. Fazzino and his team select plants according to the light and pH levels of the different environments.

A Bella Builders Living Wall featuring a vertical pattern 

For the Seven4one boutique hotel in Laguna Beach, California, Fazzino brought a courtyard to life by juxtaposing a Living Wall with a patined metal fireplace, and brightened the formerly nondescript facade with a Living Wall planted in a vertical pattern.
