THE BENEFITS OF GREEN SPACESWe may not realize it, but green spaces are extremely important for the well-being of cities and citizens. They improve our air quality, provide habitats for the animals, and build strong communities. Read on to learn about some of the major benefits of trees and plants, and find out how you can help develop green space in your community.
Secondly, trees are known to reduce heat buildup and enhance night time cool downs. Tests in a mall parking lot in Huntsville, Ala., showed a 31 degree difference between shaded and unshaded areas.
Lastly, landscaping helps reduce soil erosion and water runoff. An area covered with plants and mulch holds soil in place and absorbs rainfall.
Green spaces also have positive effects on children. Kids who are exposed to natural environments show reduced ADHD symptoms and improved attention in the classroom.
Parks and gardens attract tourists and create employment opportunities due to the need of maintaining these open spaces. In addition, businesses choose to open their locations next to green spaces because it makes it easier for consumers to locate them.
The list of benefits continues at landscapeontario.com.
Get involved to help develop green space in our cities by taking part in Evergreen’s stewardship and tree-planting events, or by working to connect people with nature in your own community. G&L Group is a proud supporter of Evergreen. Visit www.evergreen.ca/our-impact/greenspace/ to learn more.
