Living in a big city definitely has its perks, however one thing that we often miss is not only the look of greenery but also the sensation of it in general.

We’ve touched upon the benefits of artificial indoor plants and we’re taking that one step further with vertical gardens.

Vertical gardens are a great way not only to utilise empty wall space, but they can also act as a great decorative piece for those empty and dry white walls.

There’s no need for a garden architect to create something like this. You can make it your DIY project to enhance your home or office space.
