A French botanist creates incredible vertical gardens

Meet Patrick Blanc, a talented scientist and true artist, who has traveled the world to decorate hundreds of boring concrete walls with his amazing vertical gardens!


Patrick install true symbols of life and nature right in the middle of modern metropolises. His comprehensive knowledge of botany helps him to choose the right plants, which are able to grow and survive in any kind of environment, such as tough desert climates of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. Patrick's works can now be seen in different parts of our planet, from Middle East to Australia.

Every green wall is a complicated structure. It's irrigated with the help of a special system created by Patrick. At the age of 18 he found the inspiration in the arrangement of a pump in his aquarium and created his first vertical garden. Nowadays his work is popular and in-demand all over the world!

Vertical gardens look good BUT don't buildings deteriorate faster?

Only with structures made of materials other than brick or stone type. Actually the opposite. The stone is protected from erosion factors (wind,rain,hail,sun etc.) The stone becomes stained from water and vegetative matter. Nothing lasts forever and all stone will deteriorate over time.

If the root system of the plants penetrates the mortar on a brick structure it can weaken it and shorten it's useful life span.

Nice but who would want to take care of these plants and keep them in place, and they are harmful to structures, the root system has to have water and that in turn makes fractures in stone or concrete.
