Vertical Garden.

A friend of mine lives in an old home with an interesting design feature in her garden. The neighbours erected a huge concrete wall right on the dividing boundary, so with a stroke of genius and a very special gardener, a vertical wall of Australian Native plants was constructed. The trough at the bottom holds the water that is drawn up to the top of the wall and released to slowly trickle through the plants and keep the garden watered. It has lights down in the water to illuminate it all at night, and the whole garden is spectacular. What a wonderful way to disguise an ugly concrete wall.
