Earlier this week I drove past this under construction car park in Chester, but couldn't make out if the plants were real or not.  If they were, how on earth would they get 'trimmed'  ?   :grin: :grin: :grin:

Yes Alex, they're 'Living walls'. Relatively new concept but I like 'em..

They've got one at M & S in Cheshire Oaks, but it's only one story high, this one looks 7 stories, hard to get a lawnmower up there . :yay:

Chester bus station also has a grass roof, but at least they could put sheep up there !



PS it's looking a bit brown these days.

I didn't realise that Alex although when I am on the shuttle bus from the railway station to the town centre I wouldn't think of looking up at the roof.  I expect that photo was taken by a drone.
