The Driver, London - vertical garden - June 2009

The planting is a real mixture; ferns, grasses, heuchera, lavender, climbing hydranga - all hanging off the side of a building.

Bernie, google Patrick Blanc, he's the designer.
He uses a irrigation system to a matting/membrane that the plants are rooted to.

Robertr, you are so lucky to be able to see this.
I am in awe of this guys work.
