Seoul City Introduces Vertical Gardens


SEOUL, July 9 (Korea Bizwire)The Seoul Metropolitan Government plans to introduce new vertical gardens by planting trees and flowers on building walls as part of its initiative for urban greening.

The city completed construction of vertical gardens across 1,000 square meters at the Donuimun Museum Village last month and plans to open them to the public on Friday.

The gardens were set up on the walls and the roofs of buildings, as well as inside a separate greenhouse and nighttime landscape gardens.

The walls across five buildings have been planted with trees and flowers, including junipers and emerald greens, from all four seasons.


An automatic watering system has been set up for sustainable and efficient management of the vertical gardens.

Greenhouse and rooftop gardens were set up for visitors to enjoy the foliage at a closer distance as well as to learn about the plants or to take a rest.

Flowerpots have been placed inside a special frame set up along the building walls to allow visitors to see and touch them at a close distance.
