Gotowe maty wegetacyjne
Zazielenienie przydomowego ogrodu jest postrzegane jako wyjątkowo przyjazne człowiekowi hobby a także stały punkt naszego wiosennego i letniego spędzania czasu na świeżym powietrzu. Uwielbiamy patrzeć, jak powoli rodzi się wokół nas piękny ogród, jak zmienia wraz ze zmianą pór roku. Jakże inaczej wygląda wykonanie terenu zieleni w procesie inwestycji budowlanej. Tu liczy się przede wszystkim czas, prostota instalacji i łatwość w pielęgnacji.
Biodiversity Roof
Czy w miejsce „standardowego” systemu dachu zielonego wykorzystującego zieleń w celu kompensacji powierzchni biologicznie czynnej, możemy również wprowadzać rozwiązania zapobiegające pozostałym negatywnym skutkom urbanizacji, w tym zanikowi różnorodności biologicznej w miastach?
Mikroklimat na zielonych dachach
Miejski mikroklimat gromadzi wiele negatywnych skutków zmian klimatycznych. Są to m.in. występowanie miejskich wysp ciepła, intensywne i krótkotrwałe opady deszczu oraz zanieczyszczenie powietrza. Jedną z metod walki ww. skutkami jest zazielenianie dachów.
Build a garden in your home!
The ability to control the composition and origin of food and concern for our loved ones are the main reasons why we think about starting our own garden. However, questions immediately arise: Will I have enough room to grow the plants? What expenses do I have to take into account? How much introducing a new element into my home will disrupt it? How will my garden change over time?
A garden as a cure for everyday life!
More than 30 years ago, the World Health Organization (WHO) hypothesised that reduced indoor air quality, where we spend most of our day, could have a markedly negative impact on our health, which was subsequently confirmed by detailed reports. The so-called Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) has been cited in the WHO report as a direct cause of conditions such as chronic headaches, asthma-like conditions and other respiratory disorders, and even chronic digestive problems. What can we do to effectively combat this problem?
Types of green walls
For decades, plants have overgrown the walls of buildings. This is mainly due to vines which can climb to heights with their tendrils or suckers to cling. However, it wasn't until vertical gardens led to a real revolution. They made it possible to unite architecture with nature. Their incredible advantage is the ability to cover complex, curved walls with a super lightweight structure. Green walls are also a variety of multi-species artworks.
An alternative to green deserts - flower meadows
Since the Middle Ages, the flower meadows have been moved from their natural, rural location to the urban environment. Wild meadows had a positive impact on the quality of Green Infrastructure as they helped increase the biodiversity in the urban environment. However, over the centuries, the role of meadows has been taken over by manicured lawns, which now cover more than 70% of all green urban spaces in the world [Ponte-e-Sousa et al. 2016]. Lawns are found in all gardens, front gardens, public parks, cemeteries, golf courses, and along streets, although it is not the most environmentally friendly design solution. Lawns are green deserts, with low biodiversity and requiring specific expenditure for proper maintenance.
IKEA report: Where is your home and your kitchen going?
IKEA presented a report this year that makes the case for a more eco-conscious attitude. The text of the document entitled “Concept Kitchens of 2025” says that over 60% of the world's population will move to cities within the next 10 years. This trend, like the problems with the “productivity” of global agriculture signalled above, will require a change in the way we think about food and the raw materials used in its production and processing.
