January 2014:   Hidden Virtue (www.gardenandhome.co.za)

"Water tanks allow you to harvest precious rainwater during the rainy season to use during the drier months. This is great for conserving water, but no so wonderful from an aesthetic point of view. Instead of struggling to find a hiding place for your tank, give it pride of place near a patio or entrance and transform it into a vertical garden.”

4 April 2011:   Vertical Landscapes Pioneers Urban Farming on Walls in South Africa (www.saaffordablehousing.co.za)

“The only way to get fresher, more locally grown produce would be to grow it yourself. Urban farming is the practice of cultivating, processing and distributing food in an urban area. Food grown in your home eliminates all aspects of land-use and transportation and the current model’s inefficient use of time, distance, and costs. As a result, shelf-life is three times longer. In addition, food safety concerns are practically eradicated.”

29 March 2011:   Concrete Jungle Grows a Pair (www.jhblive.com)

“A vertical garden comes with a two year maintenance contract in which the company regularly tends to the plants, replacing the nutrients and trimming the leaves. If you're like me then your cotton wool covered popcorn seed plant also died in Science class, so you don't want to have to maintain any garden. I want all the beauty with none of the work and I just want to pick strawberries from my wall for breakfast!”
