Being nature lovers, we merge beautiful mansions with humongous gardens in our imaginations. Sadly, parameters like budget and space do not always let our ‘dream house’ happen but Interior designing has witnessed quite a momentum throughout the decades adding innovative applications to its field. Companies like DesignBHK can fulfil our dreams and promise to set up vertical gardens in your houses suitably in confined spaces and within our budget limits.
The history of vertical gardens originated way back in 600 BCE in the form of The Hanging Gardens of Babylon (one of the seven wonders in the world). As centuries passed by, these greenery designs evolved in multiple ways. In ancient times, plants grew on mud and dirt that is settled over the roofs of huge mansions. Today’s interior designers got inspired and converted them into aesthetics.
Vertical gardens give us an opportunity to make the best use of vertical spaces and to save horizontal spaces in our homes. DesignBHK is here to bring you closer to nature as well as providing you with luxury. Here are a few of the best ideas to design your homes with a floral ambience.
Wall baskets represent your gardening ideas in the best possible way. Tiny plants kept in baskets are usually hung on the wall or can be attached to the wall directly according to the shape of the basket. They are made up of pine, jute or plastic. They save you a lot of work because they do not include extra efforts like in the garden. The green portion is highlighted and the muddy part is always hidden to make your walls look attractive. They will also have less spillage because of their shapes. The baskets can also be made DIY at our homes using old recyclable materials.
