We discuss public street greening in this section. We believe whoever wants to attract more people, locals, customers, or tourists alike, must green up! (i.e. plant flowers, plants, trees, climbers, in the public's view, etc.) Also walkways, courtyards, paths and passages need greening up! This fact is already known in small towns that rely on tourism. There also exists many greened areas next to public street trees and flower paths. Street greening is simply beautiful! But... it must be cared for and cultivated. Just as a wall garden must be cared for.
A greened up street in any style is not only more beautiful, it also offers ecological advantages. Moreover, it increases the aesthetic quality and could slow the hectic tempo of the passers-by who may want to stop a while and enjoy the nature. It is a naturally created shopper decelerator! Shops windows are enjoyed more thoroughly, people stop in street cafés longer, the sales volume of shops and eateries increases. In short: street greening can be monetarily advisable as well as ecologicaly benificial!
To begin with, it is useful to collect ideas from towns which have already successfully greened up, like some of the German "Rose cities". You will find examples below. To start the greening, annuals in tubs or buckets should be established with climbing plants that are placed on walls and climb up on wires, cords, rope, trelliswork etc. and maybe even climb high tension greening cables or wires set up high or on existing electric cables. Often, flower shops start to green up with flower boxes on the facades. Municipalities will even promote this. For later street renovations and city center rehabilitations the “right” plants, flowers, trees, and climbers must be correctly determined, established and cultivated.
