SIDE TILE OUT, FAADE GARDEN IN: ALL INFORMATION ABOUT CONSTRUCTING A FAADE GARDEN AND SUITABLE PLANTS
What is a facade garden?
A facade garden is actually a kind of mini-garden against the facade of a house or building, often on the street side of a house. Especially in the city, where more greenery is often desired, a facade garden is an ideal solution for more plants and flowers. A facade garden can often be laid out simply by removing a paving stone and planting in its place. Climbing plants that grow against a facade are also called a green facade and also fall under vertical gardening.
