EXTREME HORTICULTURE

"It's very similar to other types of gardening, except here you're hanging thirty floors in the air sometimes" - Andrew Wands, vertical gardener

Soaring above Sydney a group of extreme horticulturalists have taken it upon themselves to maintain the 32 storey's worth of 'hanging garden'. A dangerous task that requires the workers to hang on the outside of the building via the use of a building management unit.

The irrigation of the seven kilometres of planter boxes and green walls at One Central Park is controlled by four pumps concealed in room deep in a basement level. They are the heartbeat of the garden. Each of the green walls has an irrigation dripper every four metres.
