Fuzhou plans to popularize roof greening
Updated: 2011-08-19

Fuzhou has made a lot of useful attempts to ‘green’ roofs. Some of their efforts are being highly praised by specialists. The city has been awarded second prize for scientific technical progress in Fujian province for their light roof greening projects, which utilizes vertical greening plants on roofs. Also, Fuzhou has been active in promoting the positive results of this practical application.

Now roof greening has been adopted by other organizations and residential areas such as Yuanhong Cheng, Junlin Minjiang, Affiliated Hospital of Fujian Medical University, Guanya Plaza, Guoguang Park, Huakai Fugui, Huasheng Building and Xingwang Ruijie in Fuzhou. In addition, roof greening is also available for some compound apartments, for example, Meihai Garden, Spring of Paris, Jinzuan Shijia.

As pointed out by Municipal Bureau of Gardening, at the beginning of this year, the campaign "show your balcony" was carried out to improve people’s awareness of roof greening. The activity assessed over a hundred works of vegetation on roofs. It is reported that many countries and regions have begun roof greening. Some have even formulated relevant laws and regulations in order to popularize roof greening. In some western countries such as U.S.A. and Germany as well as some cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Chengdu roof greening is included in initial architectural plans rather than applied later.
