The origins of vertical gardens

In the west, after the creation of the cities, gardens were the best way to be close to nature.

Vertical gardens started to be built to solve the problems of space in the cities.

For this reason, they can mostly be found in urban environments.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VERTICAL GARDENS?

.They act as a thermic isolation system:they reduce the overall temperature of the building in summer and protect the building from the cold in winter.

-They avoid the risk of floods because they retain some of the water that comes from the storms.

-They save water because they are based on a closed water circuit.

of very light plants and

of automated watering.
