This theoretical-practical information is complemented with a technic guide who shows some of the species that the author, based on his own experience and knowledge, recommends for the realization of green walls. The guide, besides the scientific name and the picture of the specie, also reveals very useful data, as the better pH, the temperatures the plant can tolerate, its size and its blooming season. To this is added very interesting information, as the origin of the plant or the family it belongs, and even advices and observations for each one.
