Urban beauty sprouts high above highways
Bamboo can grow in difficult circumstances, bringing the benefits of landscaping to urban challenges.
Cities can find creative nooks and crannies to add greenscaping -- and that filters the pollutants out of the air, provides oxygen, provides shade and urban cooling... and brings a touch of nature's wonder to everyday routines.
Bringing artists into the green evolution can create new opportunities for beauty and practical results. These creative landscaping solutions can also brand a city as greener and healthier living centers.
Bamboo comes in all sizes -- and can be used creatively in many nooks and crannies to bring low maintenance greenery to the urban landscape. But beware, bamboo spreads and works best in confined areas -- or containers.
