How can plants help reduce your energy consumption?
In an urban environment, plants bring several advantages to building owners. In particular, they help capture the heat that would otherwise be diffused inside the building. For example, climbing plants on exterior walls and green roofs absorb UV rays and protect the structures below from early degradation.
Green roofs also have the ability to absorb rainwater and thus decrease the amount of water discharged from the roof to the ground. For a shoreline property where flooding is frequent, this solution is a clear advantage.
