Shade gardens make outdoor life eco-friendly and economical
Globally warmed climate change acts to make sunlit areas feel more parched, look more scorched, and register 15° to 20° higher than shaded counterparts. Terraforming Planet Earth’s atmosphere back to healthy, hospitable configurations ultimately brings gardeners and scientists together since progress depends upon:
• bio-geographical practices;
• scientific advances;
• technological breakthroughs.
Beautifying the interiors of churches, factories, houses, offices, and stores with air-freshening phytoremediating plants and embellishing their exteriors with shaded oases of flowering, fruiting foliage from surface to treetop levels count among the first critical steps on 1,000-mile (1,609.34-kilometer) journeys toward minimizing climate-changing global warming.
Ken Druse’s The New Shade Garden expertly describes exactly how to go about creating a lush oasis in the age of climate change.
