Georgia is embracing plans to transform capital Tbilisi into an ecologically friendly city by introducing green streets and planting more trees and flowers in residential and office areas.
The latest part of this project was to introduce a vertical garden into the city.
The vertical garden will be planted on the wall of the building at 59 Aghmashenebeli Ave in Marjanishvili district, announced Tbilisi Development Fund today.

The vertical garden will be created within the Government-initiated New Tiflis project, which aimed to boost the economy, develop tourism and contribute to the well-being of Tbilisi’s residents.
Vertical gardens are typically built on a solid building that has a drip irrigation system installed to water the greenery.
