Yes, it is possible. You can do it by adjusting the CData property of the surface that meshz creates. meshz will create a surface whose CData matrix is just the height values of the surface padded with two extra rows/columns on each side to make the curtain. If you want to change the color of the curtain, you can generate your own CData array. For example:
% Make the initial plot
[x, y, z] = peaks;
g = meshz(x, y, z);
% Generate a new CData matrix by
% allocating a new array that has two extra rows/columns on each
% side. Note that the x, y, and z arrays in this example are 49x49
% Therefore we need C to be 53x53 (53 = 49 + 2 + 2). Obviously this
% could be automated using the SIZE function. The -4 here means that
% the curtain will be colored with whatever color represents -4 in
% the colormap ... you could change this to be whatever works for your
C = -4 * ones( 53, 53 );
% Insert the Z-data into the matrix.
C(3:51, 3:51) = z;
% Set the property on the surface.
set(g, 'CData', C)
