Vertical Garden Designs

The following images depict the home office of world-renowned botanist and Father of the vertical garden, Patrick Blanc. He is later pictured standing in the foreground of one of his most famous creations- the green wall of the European Parliament in Brussels. Blanc’s experience manifests in the production of large-scale garden installations. He credits his success to selecting only those species of plant which naturally grow in similar environments, such as rock and cliff-faces. He introduces tropical species from places that inspired him in the infancy of his work and is careful to cover the lower sections of the piece with those that are moisture-loving, leaving the higher sections to those that relish sunlight and are less affected by seasonal change.
