Garden stuff



Inspired by gardens — vertical ones.


The vertical garden on The Bund, Shanghai. 2012.

At that same garden in Singapore, the tallest vertical garden I have ever seen. It had a sophisticated irrigation system.


Just last February I was at Bali. The parking building at Bali Denpasar airport caught my eye. It reminds me of the San Miguel HQ in Ortigas… and the Park Square building in Glorietta, which has now been replaced.


Ayala Ave tries a wall garden. Nice!
Ayala Avenue as it turns to EDSA also has san impressive set up. I took this a while ago and it seems the wall gardens are still alive. I won’t include the MMDA versions by the tunnels. Because I don’t  understand what they were trying to do.


Dusit Hotel does the vertical garden so well! #makati
I like what Dusit Hotel has done in this little piece of wall.


I found some interesting garden fixtures from some of my site partners and friends. Of course no one really needs to buy expensive wall brackets for vertical gardens. I’ve seen many versions of it, even the basic trellis would do. But it’s good to have options, especially the one by Gronomics because it has built in pipes for easy irrigation. I’m also loving the quirky planters from Kenneth Cobonpue’s Hive.
