What are the advantages of this system? The most obvious is the ability to grow many plants in a small space. It’s an interesting way to maximize the production of a small garden, or to grow strawberries on a deck or balcony.

The tricky part is to drill the holes, it not very difficult but you’ll have to be very patient, because any shock could shatter the brick.
A new breed of high-rise architecture is in the process of being born, thanks to the collaborative efforts of modern design pioneers.
