Blazing a trail

Over the weekend Adam came across this article by Lucy Masters. He has not stopped talking about it all week. There is so much to disagree with and some of the ranting is really quite amusing. One thing is for sure though, we are convinced that living green walls and roof gardens need to be a central part of the urban garden future. After all, as housing density increases further the only solution for maintaining a decent proportion of green space is to move vertically! The fact that they also look stunning is an added benefit as can be seen in the example below taken from a garden we designed and installed in Lewis.

Earth as art

Over the last few months we have been working with Ryan Gander on a very interesting project to create an earthworks. Ryan’s concept is brilliant and we are extremely excited to be helping him work out how to make it a reality – moving 600 tons of soil is going to be a lot of fun! We should be able to share more details by the end of October so watch this space…
