This video is about using dog poops as a fertilizer which added to the planter, increasing greening area that based on the existing fences at Wan Po Road Pet Garden.

This is a popular pet garden and pet garden has to separated by fences for safety reasons. It can keeps the owners stay with their dogs, and separates the road and garden. But the fences is designed like a jail and make people stressful.

So we design some planters that placed below the fences, and the plants can climb up the fences that work similar to vertical greening. The planter is designed like a flatten excrement collection box thus it can blocks the smell of the poops, so when people carry up the poops, they can put those into the planter then used as fertilizer which benefits to the plants.

So finally, we come up with a way that make dog poops become a useful fertilizer and make the pet garden greener.
