A garden anywhere

roof garden, green roofs, bus shelter, street furniture

After spotting this planted roof to a bus shelter on Zaragoza’s Paseo Independencia, it made me realise (again) that it truly is possible to grow a garden anywhere.  All it takes is a little imagination, some basic horticultural innovation and possibly (as with most gardening scenarios) some perseverance.

What’s good about this feature is that it adds a new dimension to the street scene.  The additional greenery is a visual bonus, it I am sure helps to a degree with rainwater catchment (reducing the volume of run-off) and the vegetation will also provides habitat for flora and fauna thereby improving the biodiversity of the street.

A quirky idea from a Spanish landscape designer that hopefully we will see replicated elsewhere.
