With the understanding that urbanization is inevitable, it is imperative that measures be put in place to ensure that the natural environment is not entirely eliminated. Having been characterized by concrete pavement, skyscrapers, tarmac, plastic and a host of other non-biodegradable materials, urbanization may well be the doom of nature. However, urban landscape planning is increasingly being sought to bring life into urban areas.
Through the use of proper engineering principles, urban landscaping in New Orleans LA, is changing the look of most of its commercial and residential housing areas. Despite the need to clear land for housing construction, areas around these houses are being designed to hold life. This is achieved by engineering houses to be able to hold soil in small corners, balconies, and even roof tops to compensate for the loss of land on which it stands.
In addition, green engineering principles also encourage housing designs that allow sunlight to penetrate both into the house and other areas that were previously blocked from natural access. The concept of the green lawn and front yard is being brought back even if it is in pots and concrete demarcations on walls that allow grass and other plants to be grown. This is done all while maintaining the order and sanitation of the housing communities.
Urban landscaping in New Orleans LA, also focuses on providing environmentally-sensitive, accessible, and highly aesthetic, yet functional, landscaping solutions. This feature can convert even garbage-filled vacant lots that were a previous eyesore into the most amazing gardens. This uplifts general the mood, health and vigor, while creating a welcoming environment in either commercial or residential areas.
This process is not just aimed at maintaining the presence of natural features. It also focuses on introducing other forms of life and nature that were previously not there, but could do quite well. Water sources in the form of fountains and other water features can also be introduced into concrete paved areas to increase moisture levels in busy areas. Low light adaptable plants, along with other species of birds, can be introduced to increase natural diversity.
