Vertical Green – Ferns

IMG_0432

 A vertical green for ferns. If you have a narrow space with high walls and little sunlight, like the courtyard at Singapore Botanical Gardens beside the library, you can create a fern wall, set with a tree fern.

There's an ingenious way of covering the wall with netting and creating squares with soil/ sand.
