Tropical plants on the wall of a bank, flavoured garden in a crowded office and paintings made of succulents – this is not a fairy tale. This is the latest trend of landscape design called vertical gardens.
Vertical gardens – or fytowall – came from France. At the end of the last century a botanist and fashionable French designer Patrick Blanc invented a special technology of vertical plants growing that quickly became extremely popular.
A fytowall is a vegetative composition planted in special soil and located in vertical constructions. It is equipped with a sprinkling and fertilizers delivery system to let it bloom and smell. One-square-meter panel can be planted with up to 50 various bushes and flowers.
There are many types of the green walls. Constructions differ with materials and life support systems. Plants are selected individually. It depends of when and what this wall will be planted for.
This kind of walls are not only for covering unattractive surface. They perform many important functions. For instance, they filter and disinfect air that is especially important in conditioned offices and flats.
A small vertical garden will be great for your kitchen as well. You’ll always have fresh greens for your salads.
External fytowalls protect house from dust, street noise, heated air and serve as a wonderful habitat for many birds and insects.
Green wall looks incredible in private gardens. Each day it will change the whole garden – flowers bloom, leaves become yellow and thighs create new patterns.
Many summer visitors install vertical gardens by their efforts. Modern stores offer fabricated part for constructions but you can build them on your own.
There are also many landscape beautification companies that will create a vertical oasis to any taste. But note that their services are expensive.
