At Toronto’s Canada Blooms, the country’s largest flower and garden festival, the trend in growing vertically has grown up–gorgeous, smart, sophisticated examples were everywhere. This should come as no surprise given the appeal: great for small urban spaces and for turning plants into art, literally. Here are some highlights.
Hollander Landscaping Ltd specialize in living walls for interiors but who wouldn’t be inspired by this design of theirs to rethink an outdoor brick wall.
Here’s a closer look.
This wall, also by Hollander Landscaping Ltd, is state of the art.
