Urbanarbolismo and Unusualgreen just unveiled one of their latest vertical gardens, this time at the entrance to the Organics Restaurant in Barcelona. Low maintenance design and operation plus hardy plants makes for a delicious looking installation. The lush vertical garden is the perfect complement to the restaurant’s menu, which features slow food dished up fast!
Organics Restaurant is located in the Urquinaona Square in the center of Barcelona and serves up ‘Slow Fast Food’ with simple, organic ingredients dished up in a dash. The restaurant tasked vertical garden experts Urbanarbolismo and Unusualgreen to design and install a lush display of greenery. The living wall greets customers as they enter and showcases the sustainable food the restaurant serves up.
The garden was built using their proprietary f + p system, which makes for a low maintenance garden perfect for medium and small size installations. Included in the garden are Davallia canariensis, Nephrolepis exaltatata, Pteris, Adiantum capillus-veneris, Maranta leuconeura, Syngonium podophyllum, Syngonium podophyllum “red,” Soleirolia soliurolii, Begonia rex. The result is a living wall full of color that requires little maintenance and no fertilizer.
