Green Walls

Hi

If you have come across vertical gardens or if you are growing one at your place, this may not seem a surprise. However, if you never saw one, this is surely going to awe you. Vertical gardens are Vegetation-Bearing Architectonic Structure and SystemMore than for its aesthetics, vertical gardens serve a very good purpose of space conserving greeneries. We are featuring some of the beautiful vertical gardens from across the world. 
Patric Blanc from France, is a pioneer in popularizing this vertical gardens. There are several works to his credit in France and around the world. In our research it is found that, Paris has the largest no.of vertical gardens.
This interior green wall is at the France embassy in New Delhi.
This exterior wall green cladding is done for Atheneaum Hotel in London. Don't you think greenery added beauty to the outsides.
As far as our research and visits concerned, Heathrow is one airport which adopts the best practices, one of which is green wall at sky team lounge.
We all are aware that Singapore is one the cleenest cities in the world, may be they are aiming for the green city too, here is the vertical garden wall at emporium shopping mall at Singapore.
Wondering if these vertical gardens only pertain to commercial places??? Not absolutely.This is a garden wall done for an apartment terrace.
If you ever had a chance to visit the Anthropologie Store at Regent street, London, you will love the green wall inside...our personal favourite.

The wall might seem good and interesting but if you want to adopt one or know the technique, here are the detailed illustrations. 


Thanks to Patric Blanc, for introducing and popularizing a sustainable concept to conserve space and yet have greenery around. 
There is a simple technique to get one in small spaces using recycled plastic bottles something similar like the one below...find the details here.
