Ready-Made Plant-Based Noise Barriers to Protect Our Garden From Road Noise

It seems to me that if you want serious noise reduction, the thing would be to erect a sound barrier wall of concrete or some other material, then put a vertical garden arrangement on or against it. You would probably want to consult with professionals on this project. Here are some ideas:
