In March, Scripps Networks Interactive, our parent company, opened a new LEED-registered building at our headquarters in Knoxville, Tenn. I love our sunlight-bathed, eco-friendly, beautiful digs featuring wall-sized windows, an open floor plan, brightly-colored, ergonomic furniture, and natural materials like bamboo and cork. One of my favorite features is the plant-covered living wall in the lobby.


You can make your own living wall like this one from Green Your Decor using recycled aluminum cans.

Drill a drainage hole in the bottom of the can, paint with low VOC paint, fill and install.

Decrease the DIY factor (but increase your cost) and purchase an all-in-one unit with a cedar holder and watering system.

Get more ideas, technical know-how and step-by-step instructions for living walls on DIY Green Walls.

Feast your eyes on this amazing plant wall growing on the side of the PNC Bank building in Pittsburgh. The largest in North America, it requires only 15 minutes of watering per week in warmer months.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2
    images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  5. Troppo facile, pensò Rizzo. Troppo facile.

  6. uno dei pochi politici galantuomini e preparati. Anche quando in televisione è costretto a confrontarsi con i tribuni urlanti, ha la capacità e l di non reagire, lasciando starnazzare l per poi continuare il proprio ragionamento. Peraltro è anche una persona molto preparata, che spiega e motiva sempre quello che dice, non facendo mai discorsi preconfezionati e pieni di retorica e slogan. Se è giunto a questo punto, vuol dire che la misura era colma. Ed il fatto che abbia rassegnato le dimissioni perché il suo collegio elettorale nel quale c Manduria, una delle prossime destinazioni pensate per i clandestini è stato gravemente penalizzato e lui non s sentito in grado di salvaguardarlo. Contrariamente a tanti politicanti, non è sceso a compromessi con la sua stessa maggioranza, sacrificando gl del suo elettorato. Perdere una figura come la sua, può fare danno al Paese ed al centro destra.
