In cities with little space to arrange, creating friendly and aesthetically pleasing public areas is a significant challenge. For urban planners and architects, it is a particularly difficult task if one wants to achieve harmony between functionality and economy, as well as preserving the character of a given city. The solution that is gaining popularity and attracting attention with its originality are hanging floral decorations. The hanging Flower Towers can become not only a charming element, but also a practical tool for the development of urban spaces.
Also, they have great potential in transforming the image and atmosphere of cities, especially those with limited space, where traditional methods of arranging greenery are often limited.
Spring is just around the corner and together with March comes hope for more colors in cities, warmer temperatures and longer walks with the family.

One of the most unique ideas may be planting of openwork Easter eggs — many Polish and foreign cities have already decided to do it. So, how to prepare such a natural decoration? Check out our guide and decorate your city step by step with Greenspired by Terra Group!
Public space is becoming an increasingly popular topic, so it is no wonder that we care about ergonomic solutions, greater comfort for residents and lush greenery in cities. Thanks to the growing social awareness, more and more design offices aim to improve urban space. It is for such initiatives that Polska Gazeta Wyborcza (one of the most popular polish magazines) organized the competition called Humanly Designed, which aims to select unique ideas. Last week, the final gala was held, and we could meet the winners of this year’s edition.
A more sustainable city
Various organizations applied for the competition: associations, designers, foundations, cooperatives, design teams, architects and entrepreneurs. There was even a special category for teenagers under 18 to reward them for their involvement in social initiatives for cities in Poland. All these groups are united by the desire to make cities more pleasant and accessible space for citizens. Sometimes it means launching multi-functional solutions, and other times it means the solutions that are smarter, greener or safer.
