People sometimes dream of bringing nature into the city, turning it into a concrete jungle where both can happily coexist. However, these dreams may be unrealistic and not attainable in the near future. Nonetheless, there are smaller projects that can bring satisfaction and the illusion of success.

One such project involves ivy-covered houses.

I remember a cartoon series where a character said nightmares involving ivy from the garden strangulated him. I hope people living in houses completely covered in ivy don’t have this problem. Now let’s analyze this concept. An ivy-covered house looks striking, romantic, and dreamy.

However, you have to consider the disadvantages, such as the moisture trapped between the ivy and the house, which can be damaging to the structure.

Think about the insects that will live in the ivy. During an epidemic, such as mosquito infestation, living in an ivy-covered house would be undesirable. Although this scenario is unlikely, to have a lush and healthy ivy, you must choose an optimal location, likely in a natural setting.

Therefore, there is no practical reason to pursue this.
