THE IMPACT OF PUBLIC GREENERY ON THE QUALITY OF LIFE IN CITIES

Kraus, M.
Abstract:
The urban environment in which we live is an important part of the quality of life. The state of the environment affects the quality of life of the inhabitants of settlements. However, the issue of environmental quality of life is not trivial. In urban areas, the average annual air temperature has been increasing for a long time. Due to the city's heat island, the adverse effects of the ever-increasing incidence and duration of heat and extreme temperatures in the city are amplified. The availability of greenery, the permeability of the city or the landscape, or the pollution of the urban environment can be phenomena of specific significance. The system of greenery in cities consists of a set of different natural and horticultural areas. Green infrastructure as a system and its individual components can provide many so-called ecosystem services such as creating shadows, lowering the temperature by evaporation, slowing down and delaying the outflow of rainwater and other ecosystem services. One option is to use mobile vertical vegetation walls. The use of vertical green walls is an opportunity to get vegetation even in places where there is not enough space for traditional planting on the ground. In addition, these walls may have a self-watering system based on the retention of rainwater from the surrounding paved areas. The concept of solving the use of vegetation walls in the urban environment is the subject of the paper.
