A Vertical Garden is a green wall which is either a free-standing wall or part of a building that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and, in some cases, soil or an inorganic growing medium. The concept of the green wall dates back to 600 BC with hanging gardens of Babylon... More recently, the larger green walls concept has been utilized with the latest in-built irrigation technology.
In modern context Vertical Garden concept is being seen as a great solution for breaking the monotony of mushrooming Concrete Jungles all over. The vertical gardens work as living ecosystem that can be grown on external walls. Vertical Gardens are also used in Interior designing especially in Hotel lobbies and High Rise Buildings.
Vertical gardens also provide an additional thermal insulation effect during summer and winter. They are an effective way to increase clean air. The leaves, roots and all micro-organisms associated with them have a major air cleaning role.
