THEvertical gardens they have become an essential trend of eco-architecture for interiors where you can concentrate all the greenery you could want in a small space. Interior design is evolving more and more from a perspective sustainable to bring entire green walls into apartments and offices. What is a vertical garden?

It must be clear, before going further, that not all vertical gardens host vertical plants
The modules are generally made up of aluminum frames or recycled materials that retain "pockets" in natural fabric. The rooting of the vegetative species is guaranteed by the intervention of automatic dosers and electronic control units that provide the plants with all the nutrition they need.
