Water garden


This was the most interesting exhibit for me at the Milan Furniture Fair. Hidden away in a small courtyard, “Aqva Garden” functions as a distributed rain collector and water storage system. Unlike conventional recycling systems, which tend to be hidden away in clunky boxes, Aqva Garden's unique branching system, which exploits the ways that water evaporates, is visibly present. And that - I cannot lie - is pretty much all I know about it; (the website is a Flash nightmare). But don't you agree it looks amazing? The project is by ecoLogicStudio whose principals, Claudia Pasquero and Marco Poletto, work in Milan and London. They collaborated for this project with Francesco Brenta and Laura Micalizzi. They also have a blog, Tropical London.

I have recently found hydroponic gardening to grow my strawberries all year long. I've used to grow my fruits outdoors in my outdoor garden, but had problems with animals and pests. Now I have moved my hydroponics garden indoors and begun growing my garden with hydroponics. The plants grow better and the organic results are stellar. I would steer you towards hydroponics gardening to anyone looking to grow vegetables all year. Hydroponics gardening is a lot better than traditional soil gardens in my opinion. Just my 2 cents. I hope this helps...
