Those of us living in high-rises on OMR, with landscaped area above underground parking lot, have a message here, if we are willing to look beyond what landscape architects prescribe. Lord knows we could do with lots more tree-cover than we have at Mantri Synergy. And it would be a bonus, if we can plant fruit-bearing trees within our complex. Should plant a tree- or two, as a pilot programme, on top of basement landscaped area.
Referring to growing mango on the terrace, The Hindu says, " M.S. Muralidharan has given a new spin to terrace gardening. His house in MRC Nagar is crowned by a cluster of green — an eight-ft-tall mango tree that has grown out of a thick and broad patch of earth placed on the terrace. Bearing an abundance of fruits at present, the tree is the wow factor of the house".
