The largest garden, irrigated by salt water garden irrigation project Zayedskogo salt water in Abu Dhabi on the Persian Gulf (UAE) occupies an area of 20,000 m2 and contains 22 000 species and 40 species of plants, which watered with salt water different concentrations. Part of the plant has acquired resistance to such a glaze in a natural way, a part – as a result of genetic modification. Researchers, biologists working in the department of gardening in Western Province Abu Dhabi during the many years of experience recreated four types of salt-tolerant plants growing in the area millions of years ago and disappeared as a result of desertification.

In the palace of the Sea ('Qasr al-Yarf') uae President Zayed Al Nahyan in Abu Dhabi split a park in which were planted about 40 salt-tolerant trees, shrubs and other plants. After a century break in Abu Dhabi has blossomed extinct species of mangroves. Four years ago on the island of Ras Ganado had planted the seeds of Rhizophora mucronata (Rizofora endian). The seeds took root and gave the shoots, and eventually the mangrove bushes bloomed.

Mangroves can grow in sea water, thanks to a unique natural mechanisms that prevent the ingress of salt. The roots of red mangroves, for example, holds up to 97% salt. White (or gray), mangroves derive two salt salt glands at the base of each leaf (hence there is their name – they cover the white salt crystals). The largest shrub labyrinth Labyrinth Peace in the Forest Park Kaslvellana (Co. Down, Northern Ireland, UK), has an area of 11,215 m2. Planned by Beverley Lear (UK) and created with the support of the public Forest Service of Northern Ireland (UK), it opened on Sept. 12, 2001 His 3.51-km trail – the longest trail shrub maze in the world.

Largest Greenhouse Project Eden (Eden Project) in Saint Austell (Kornoull, UK) – is not only an outstanding piece of architecture, astonishing audiences with their appearance, but also the largest the world's greenhouse. Created it on a plan by Tim Smith. And on the project – the architect Nicholas Grimshaw. The project aims to demonstrate the global connection of all living things and man's dependence on plants. It is situated on the territory former quarry for the extraction of kaolin. Inside the artificial biomes – plants collected from around the world.
