Ignacio Solano creates a new vertical garden in the Biscayan town of Berango
Ignacio Solano, the expert Alicante biologist in vertical gardens, has just finished his latest work located in the city Vizcaína de Berango. It is a garden of 124 meters in length and that has a vertical ecosystem of 240 square meters. The project consists of more than 6,000 plants of 12 species and 12 different families.
This new green zone, can be contemplated in the street Sabino Arana, number 30 of Berango. It is an area that is bordering the metro station of the municipality, the Metro Bilbao line. A very busy place where barangarras and visitors can enjoy the many benefits offered by this type of vertical gardens. According to Ignacio's own estimates, he will be able to produce the necessary oxygen for 240 people a year. In addition, it will capture 31 kg of dust, filter 160 tons of harmful gases and trap and process 64 kg of heavy metals per year.
In its composition, the company Ignacio Solano, Urban Paisajismo, in collaboration with the Bizkaian company Hydroforest, S.L., has carefully devised a plantation strategy in which the most suitable species to the climate of the Basque Country have been selected. Among these species are the Tulbaghia violaceous, medicinal plant native to South Africa, or the Liriopemuscari, a perennial plant native to Japan, whose flowering period is summer and autumn.
Ignacio Solano continues with its environmental commitment incorporating green to all cities on the planet. Soon, the city of Valencia will also have a new green wall designed by the biologist from Alicante.
