The local toyshop in Sicily uses its wall planters to create living walls

wall planters

 

 

The toy shop in Cefalu, Sicily knows how to use its wall planters to benefit its shop image and the public realm.

What fabulous product placement, streetscaping and use of walls.  Perhaps this is living walls pre Patric blanc?

These photos illustrate a great technique to blur the private and public domain.

The photos also illustrate how urban greening can occur in narrow, concrete spaces. No need for the wide ‘nature’ strips found in the car culture countries of the US and Australia¬† – just use the vertical concrete spaces created by the walls of almost every building.

Love it!!
