It is a well known fact that vertical gardens improve the quality of the air by removing carbon dioxide and toxins from the atmosphere and then releasing oxygen. But vertical gardens and green roofs also play an important role in assisting with water management in urban areas.

Hanging Gardens uses a soil based method for creating vertical gardens and by collecting the rainwater off the roofs of urban buildings and storing this in slim profile water tanks, this provides a great way of irrigating the plants while also improving the management of storm water run off and at the same time, improving the quality of the water.

Each plant absorbs about 250 mm of water per day and any excess water is then filtered by the plant roots and the soil and bacteria in our unique botanical felt pockets. The bacteria in soil based vertical gardens are an important component in removing heavy metals and toxins from the environment.

So, not only are hanging gardens beneficial for the air and water quality, but they also reduce the effect of urban heating.  What’s not to love about hanging gardens?
