    Great idea. If the plants are vines they could be trained to climb a trellis right next to the wall...close enough to look like they are attached to the wall but far enough to avoid actual contact with it.

    Thanks for you help
    I had a plant growing out of my stone wall attached to my porch on my 100-year-old house and thought it was pretty cute until the wall fell down!
