Patrick Blanc's vertical gardens are an ingenious way to narrow the gap between urban development and the natural environment.

Using a layer of PVC material, a metal frame and some felt, the innovative botanist and designer creates lush, thriving gardens that can be installed on virtually any surface imaginable -- indoors or out. On top of looking awesome, Patrick Blank's vertical gardens also improve a building's air quality and energy efficiency and are completely self-sufficient.
