Economical and easy to maintain Hanging gardens are a good alternative for people with green fingers. Hanging gardens sustain water loving plant species, such as ferns, lilies, sedges, and orchids.
Hanging Garden has derived its name from one the seven wonder of the World, Hanging gardens of Babylon.

Research shows tiny ferns crawling on the walls of a canyon; absorb water that seeps out of the stone, flows down the sides of a cliff. Plants grow directly on the cliff face and drop to the ground.
