Still remember the previous Guinness World Record holder for vertical garden or green wall – the Seoul City Hall with a stunning record of over 16,300 square feet covered by more than 70,000 plants? Well, not long ago, this record was beaten by another vertical garden with a much greater size. This time a whooping 22,500 square feet covered by 20,000 flower in the form of flower pyramids, arches and perimeter walls, in a scorching hot desert of Al Barsha South of Dubai.
The record holding Miracle Garden itself spans across 72,000 square meters with 4km of pathways, houses more than 45 million flowers, yet the water consumption is minimal thanks to their judicious reuse of wastewater through drip irrigation. With all the idea and hard work put into action, this is truly an outstanding project.
