Are vertical gardens and green walls too green. A representational issue?

I am waiting for green wall designs to become more multi functioned and multi surfaced.

Surely we don’t just want acres of vertical greenery and nothing else? Should the walls do more? Perhaps green walls are being used to screen bad design?

Many of the illustrations being shown to represent this design approach seem to have way too much green . But then again computer aided design images are never good at representing detail.  So maybe its just a representational issue. I hope so. Cause everything is looking a bit too green and hairy for my design sensibilities.
