If you are looking to bring more drama and amazement to your residence or commercial building, consider a vertical garden. Have you ever walked by a building or home that had a wall or two completely covered by hundreds of species of living plants? It is quite the showstopper. Many urban centers all over the world have been trying out vertical gardens to enhance the look of their building as well as add some of nature’s aesthetics to places where concrete facades are seen everywhere. But understand that planting up is more complicated than most people think.
A big challenge that has to be carefully thought out is designing your vertical garden in a way that prevents the plants’ roots from growing inside the building’s wall, which will result in slowly breaking it down. It is challenges like these that require strategic landscape design planning by a professional landscape contractor.
