Behold: the largest vertical garden in the world. Located in Bogota, Colombia, the Santalaia building is completely covered with a lush layer of 85,000 plants that span 3,100 square meters (33,368 square feet). A vertical garden of this size can produce enough oxygen for more than 3,100 people every year, process 1,708 pounds of heavy metals, filter more than 2,000 tons of harmful gases and catch more than 881 pounds of dust.
Paisajismo Urbano‘s Colombia-based franchise Groncol designed and installed the vertical garden using the innovative F+P system, patented by Ignacio Solano.
This is incredible!!

Every neighborhood should have one of these vertical gardens.

Amazing. Someone in the U.S. should do this in our major cities. This is such a great idea! Of course, someone would have to be paid to keep the plants trimmed and healthy. Reblogged from https://alk3r.wordpress.com
