    After China's vertical forests went viral on social media, people are now praising Bengaluru's very first vertical garden that aims at curbing pollution and making the city beautiful.

    An initiative of SayTrees, the organic garden has come to Hosur Road Electronics City Flyover where over 3,500 saplings of 10 different species have already been planted.

    With an automated drip irrigation system installed within the garden, the plants will get their daily dose of 100 milliliters of water.

    Each side of the vertical garden comes with a unique design. According to SayTrees, all pillars of the flyover will soon be covered with these gardens.

    And the benefits of this biodiversity are manifold. As described by SayTrees, the gardens will help reduce urban heat island effect and smog; purify outside polluted air; act as a sound-proofing barrier; create a healthy habitat for birds and insects; increase real estate value; and much more.

    The project was cleared by the Bangalore Elevated Tollway Pvt Ltd. and took four months of meticulous planning.

    Let's hope this initiative soon flows to other Indian cities, especially Delhi NCR where pollution hovers beyond normal levels.

    This was done by the citizens of Bangalore on their own initiative though, not the state government.

    The government was busy ...with other things.

    Beautiful idea, obviously the state govt didn't come up with this. It had to be a citizens initiative.
    The babus don't care about the environment.
