French botanist Patrick Blanc is a pioneer in soil-free systems for growing gardens on indoor and outdoor load-bearing walls. Vertical gardens temper urban heat islands, improve air quality and insulate the building, reducing energy consumption.

Kyoto - Zen garden has 3 features, the sky, the land and the water. The water is represented by raked pebbles in ripples. Stones are the islands (land) and trees represent the sky or heaven. The gardens are quiet for contemplation
