Musicians Bill and Kate Isles stand in a home workspace with plants that will eventually be part of a plant installation.  The Duluth couple launched Duluth Living Walls last year. He builds the pieces and she does the maintenance. “You have to be there with the plants, with your hands on them, or it won’t look the way it looks. I’m a real stickler,” she said.
