Image from NY Times Vertical gardens are popping up at stylish restaurants. While some of you may still be a little cold, even in April, I found something to cheer you up and raise your hopes of a green lifestyle.... If you can't have greenery yet in your own home, then head out for dinner! Today I'm going to show you a few spots in Mexico City for inspiration, but vertical gardens are popping up everywhere, especially restaurant design. It creates a friendly, warm and modern environment. This really cool outdoor space above can be spotted at the Restaurant Padrinos. It's part of a larger effort that Mexico is making to improve the super urban city's notoriously bad air. Images from Habitat Japanese restaurant in Mexico City featuring a vertical garden. At this point you should be getting super inspired to create a modern, green patio at your own home. Maybe even your own green wall! If this Japanese restaurant in Mexico City above hasn't inspired you, I don't know what will... When you're designing your own garden, don't forget to accent it. In these restaurants, modern outdoor lighting is provided to spotlight the living wall feature. You should spotlight even your potted plants and trees for an awesome affect. Images from Habitat Asian-inspired restaurant in Mexico City featuring a living wall. This Asian-inspired Mexico City restaurant above creates a beautiful landscape for its patrons. The system in which a vertical wall is created looks complicated, but still do-able if you wanted to create a smaller version in your own home or backyard. Be patient, it will look better once the plants grow out a bit. Add a little extra serenity with a garden water fountain . The sound of water is the perfect addition to beautiful landscaping. Have an awesome weekend everyone!
