Vertical gardens are the topiary of the future. These breathtaking, upward expanses of greenery are popping up worldwide as public art, covering civic and residential buildings, and functioning as space-conscious home gardens.
A vertical garden is a wall or vertical structure that is at least partially covered by vegetation. These gardens range from pure decoration to fully-functional herb or veggie gardens for those lacking a lot of space. The high-reaching form of gardening has become of worldwide interest as it offsets a space’s carbon footprint while also being aesthetically pleasing.
Recently, vertical gardening has moved from small-scale venues to become an integral facet of some major architectural projects in construction. Though the images are only digitized plans of how the buildings will look in the future, it’s obvious that these structures will provide a beautiful contrast to the dark cities in which they’re located.
