Remove The Tiles From Gardens. Nature Loves Green

Remove the tiles from gardens. Nature loves green Living your environment, the environment, and you should have more green than hard pavement in your garden. Six reasons in a row to get started and green your garden.

When Tiles Removed There Is Less Flooding

Due to climate change, we will have to deal more with heavy rain showers in the coming decades. All that water cannot sink into the ground if there are tiles and pavement everywhere. And that means that the already overloaded sewer will be even more loaded. The result is flooding, in which you have to think of flooded cellars, a hindrance to traffic, or floating maintenance hole covers. If we all remove tiles together, put more grass, plants, and trees in our garden, that would make a huge difference.

Cool Climate On Hot Summer Days

The temperatures are rising, and although some people enjoy a mild winter and hot summer, there is something to be said for cooling off. Green takes care of that. Tiles and pavement absorb heat and result in higher temperatures. The more green there is in a certain neighborhood, the more coolness you can find on a hot summer day. That is why such a plea is being made for more green roofs in the city: they keep the climate under control and provide the necessary cooling.

The Earth Absorbs Carbon Better Without Tiles

The soil in your garden can store a large amount of carbon from the air. This makes a green garden unexpectedly a major asset in the fight against climate change. This was read in the New York Times. The soil in your garden can store more carbon than, for example, an urban forest, says Carly Ziter of Wisconsin-Madison University in America. So, remove the tiles from gardens. Nature loves green

Flowery Gardens Are Good For Bees And Butterflies

We all know now that bees and butterflies are getting more difficult because of all the 'hardcover.' In rural areas, there is hardly any room for them, which means that special 'bee ribbons' are installed ensure that they do not die out. More flowers in your backyard help just as well, and it is still beautiful to look at.

Green Improves Your Concentration

Research from the University of Melbourne shows that looking at a green roof increases your concentration. In that study, 150 students got a boring job. Halfway they were allowed to take a small break of 40 seconds, one half looking at a photo of a green roof and the other half looking at boring concrete. After the break, the students who had looked at the green roof turned out to perform better. Looking at green helps you to concentrate and continue to perform better. A green garden view from your office, therefore, seems a must.

Green Reduces Stress

Plants can lower blood pressure, reduce tension in the muscles, and reduce feelings of anger, aggression, and anxiety. In 2002, the University of California - Riverside researched that hospital patients with a view of green heal faster than comparable patients who had no green prospect. Japanese doctor Qing Li also investigated the effects of green on your health. This showed that regular 'forest baths,' walking slowly and consciously through the forest, have positive consequences for your resistance.
