Deck Railing and Green Walls

I have my deck built and now the plan is to build out from the house two 76 inch long green walls at about 8 feet high. I'll accomplish this by basically building a bookcase frame that will tie into the outside framing of the deck and a metal frame that will be anchored to the house and poles resting on the deck support beam closest to the house. That was my thought anyway, there may be a much simpler way.

I then want to tie a steel cable railing system into the end of each green wall to extend out the remaining 9 feet on each side and then across the front of the deck. Constructed the way I have it, we'll be building off the edge of the deck, essentially adding the depth of the green wall to the width of the whole thing and the railing will be right on the edge of the outside framing as well.

I guess my question is.....Is there a more logical way to build a green wall frame and attach it to the house? I envision my green wall to basically just be framework to hold square plastic planters at a near 90 degree angle to form a vertical garden. Anyone have experience building something like this?

Any assistance is much appreciated!
