Studies on vertical gardening practices and their future perspectives
P E Jagdale
The study looks at the vertical gardening phenomena. The authors analyze the difficulties, potential and opportunities for exploiting the hard climate of this form of horticulture. In metropolitan areas and in private and public locations, vertical gardening is granted. The main challenges in vertical gardening have been established: a difficult climate, designers must adapt existing global methods to local weather conditions; the use of plants that are not acclimated; expensive local planting material; lack of interest in enhancing the city's government's structures. This development is very promising: use of local endemic flora; the use of upright gardens to create a topiary; decoration of building facades and storage walls with annual plants; the use of vertical indoor gardening. The development of this region is particularly promising: It has been determined that extensive research by biologists, theoretical designers and designers are necessary in order to develop this approach, in order to produce a broad idea of landscape design and improvements in different areas.
