I am specifying a vegetated climbing wall that is just a fancy stainless steel welded wire fence. What section number/title have you used?

We have specified various types of green screen assemblies. I've typically specified them in one of the 055000-series metal fabrications sections. Yes, they're stainless steel, but the stainless is used for functional rather than decorative purposes, and appearance is not a top priority.

When the project has the services of a Landscape Architect providing full services including drawings and specifications, they put it where ever they want to, including DIV 05 - METALS, DIV 12 - FURNISHINGS (Site Furnishings) or DIV 32 - SITE IMPROVEMENTS. I may not agree with their choice, but if it is reasonably plausible I will not complain. I do insist that that if they are using DIV 05 they adjust their Section Name & Number so that it doesn't create a conflict with my DIV 05 Sections, such as adding the word "Site" or "Landscape" to the Section name and tweaking the Section number. If they ask my advice I like to have them add 32 to the Section Number as in 05 50 32 - Site Metal Fabrications, giving it a secret handshake to coordinate with their DIV 32.
When I am preparing the Section I put it in either the 055000 Series for Metal Fabrications, or sometimes 055800 Series for Decorative Metal.
I will most likely prepare the Section if it is attached to the building, but I would prefer the Landscape Architect to prepare it if it is the free-standing fence style green screen.

When I wrote the Guide Spec for The GreenScreen Company, I gave following options for section title:
SECTION 10 82 00 – TREILLAGE
SECTION 10 22 23 – PORTABLE TREILLAGE
SECTION 32 31 00 – FENCES
SECTION 32 35 00 – SCREENING DEVICES

I would probably use 057000 Decorative Metal if it involved a custom-fabricated assembly.
For manufactured systems, I typically use 1082XX for freestanding or wall-attached plant support systems.
If it is truly a fence, 323119 Decorative Metal Fences is suitable for manufactured or custom-designed tyes.

How about a subsection to 329500, Exterior Planting Support Structures?

I just now had the same question and found this thread. I also noticed that 4specs puts this item in Section 07 0840 which is not correct; that should be "Commissioning of Thermal and Moisture Protection"
I think there should be two separate sections for this, one for interior and another for exterior living walls.

MasterFormat does indeed have two separate sections for this, one for interior and another for exterior living walls.
097753 Vegetated Wall Systems (this is a child of 097700 Special Wall Surfacing)
329500 Exterior Planting Support Structures (includes trellis, treillage, green wall, arbor, and climbing support netting)
