"Well, they will require irrigation but they also must be large enough to allow sufficient root growth to support vines as large as you want."

"Thanks Rob.  Maintenance is not a problem.   I was worried about the moisture issue as well since the roots are on the roof.   Maybe it's best to have the vines in the ground and grow up the wall to the pergola, though i'd…"

"One more point: your illustration indicates a rather small planter for this vine of which much is expected. The limited soil will both limit the vine and ry out very quickly"

"Jamie makes excellent points. I would add that vines can require a lot of maintenance to keep them looking good and prevent them from consuming the Universe. Are the clients prepared for that?"
