Question Patents?!?!

Hello all.

I had a great idea thatIi would revolutionize my county with vertical hydroponic systems in schools, rooftops, private gardens ect, because I would be the first in my country. All the benefits of growing vertically and with hydroponics are too good for the public to miss.

How hard can it be? Its just plastic and pumps. I will find a design I like via my travels to the USA and take my thoughts back to my country. But with my research I stumbled upon Tower Garden . They have patented their idea. Thats all great, but... What are my options now? Can you really patent some holes in a plastic tube? What if i build my own and modernize it? How close can i come to the original design, or how far from it do i have to be... Freaking hate patents, they ruin the prosperity of the world.

What would you do if you were in my shoes?

with love, Billy
