Interesting ways to incorporate plants into the city

Even though I love the idea of living in the countryside with lots of plants and greenery around me, I have to be true to myself. I am one of those people who fantasises of having a garden with a few wild plants to prune now and again. Maximum effect, minimum effort.hidden-jungle-v9hidden-jungle-v15Internal conservatories where there is limited space, vines growing up narrow passageways and narrow areas of the city make interesting wall foliage.

Adding colour, lightening and texture around the plants give full effect at night as well as in the day.

I do like plants, living all my life in a city has it’s restrictions, especially for that designing and incorporating plants and landscaping for a concrete city. The reality is,  finding the time to garden to upkeep is another matter.

How do you see plants being incorporated in your everyday? Not that important, why? Would love to read your comments below.
