    It is very interesting to see the ways people are bringing gardens to life within urban environments:

    Guerilla Gardening: groups of people who come in and ILLEGALLY make over dirt patches in the middle of the city. Quite a big thing in London and growing legs around the world.


    Vertical Gardens: the latest craze in landscape architecture. Last year Patrick visited Melbourne Central to create a beautiful and unique installation as part of National Design Week.


    Green Roofs: Delivers both environmental installation benefits AND reconnects urban city dwellers with nature.
