VERTICAL PLANTER SYSTEM BY BUSTER SIMPSON, SEATTLE

vertical planter, rain drain system

The “vertical planter” is a re-designed drain system where rainwater gets captured in the upturned branches. All kinds of moss and grass seeds will eventually sprout in the upturned branches - planters and make the city even more green.  In Seattle, where it rains a lot, this idea is very compelling.

If you live in the city and you're trying to grow your own __ herbs/vegetables/flowers, you may be limited by floor/ground space. Planting on your walls is an option and vertical gardens can provide not just food (albeit limited), but cleaner air and cooler temperatures. best superfoods Nashville country music singer and songwriter
