Vertical gardens, also known as “green walls“, are one of the latest trends in sustainable architecture, which can be found in major cities around the world.
One of the main characteristics of this type of construction, invented by the French botanist Patrick Blanc, is that the plants grow on structures independent of the wall, which are attached to it.
Today, vertical gardens can be seen in the most diverse places, from the facade of a commercial building to inside a restaurant.
