In addition, we have noticed the increasing proliferation of vertical gardens, which are interesting decoratively speaking, but expensive to maintain and with which the citizens cannot interact or put to real use, being a minimal attempt at providing greenery, but in an inaccessible and artificial way ...
For this setup we used 110 transparent food packaging containers, we could qui inside leaves and branches found in the trees in the area and lights of course. Afterwards, we em Placed on a wall in an ugly square in the center of Madrid and there we left our fashionable form of vertical garden.
