Environmental and attractive at the same time
This idea reminds me of the ‘green roofs’ you see throughout downtown Portland. I am deeply enamored with the idea of incorporating green spaces into our modern structures. The benefits would out do the cost in such a short time. Reducing the heat island effect, increased air filtration, over all esthetics…the list goes on.
It would be simple to start in even the most concreted over city.
-Get hardy and drought tolerant varieties planted on top of the concrete medians on highways,
-Use ground cover plants along sidewalks and in drainage systems.
