Answer: I certainly understand your desire for greenery along the brick wall but I wonder if boring holes in the concrete is the right approach. It will be labor intensive and I wonder if the results will be what you hope they might. Instead, how about building or buying some planting containers? You can find some very attractive wood or ceramic planters and they can add a decorative touch to the area in addition to providing a suitable place for plant roots. With planters, you can monitor the moisture level in the soil, then feed and water as required. If you bore holes in the concrete and plant, the roots will be confined to just below the holes because that will be their only source of moisture. Creeping fig is an excellent choice for clinging to the wall. Once the plants get off to a good start, they'll cover the wall in a few short years. Best wishes with your landscape project!
