Function and Value of Urban Green Spaces – a review

Our business development director just attended a seminar held by a local manufacturer’s representative, Mechler-Blass Associates. “Water conservation in particular is a specialty of ours. We help collect, convey and contain water for reuse or to assist in LEED and LID applications.”  Today’s lecture was on the “permavoid” “system which builds resilience into the built environment in the growing challenge of climate change, natural resource depletion and urban density.”  The concept of “future-proof cities” is a huge driver in resource management and construction technology.

Our business development director takes Green Grow Organics and Metroscapes Landscaping into the public arena where institutional change is happening on a fairly rapid schedule. Sam Sitterle is a regional leader in Natural Biological Horizontal Construction.  There is a high demand for expertise to develop complete design standards for not just a sustainable future, but a regenerative future where Soil Organic Matter (SOM) is a key life-regenerating force in all construction methodology.

We network with all kinds of construction trades related to soil biology and the design and functioning of landscapes, whether they be at ground or roof level. Meeting with various institutional managers and team members gives us a bead on direct needs of the construction community at large.

With our specific knowledge and partnership with www.sustainablegrowthtexas.com, we are here to accelerate understanding of the benefits and ROI on these natural biological growing systems. Conventional-Chemical Construction has had massive environmental and health risks that are still untold and unregulated.

Our goal at Metroscapes and Green Grow Organics is to help educate designers, architects, landscape architects, general contractors, landscapers, municipal and institutional leaders. We aim to de-mystify soil biology standards and implement regenerative agricultural and landscaping practices that clean our air, save our water, reduce stormwater runoff and erosion, as well as provide completely safe, non-toxic, healthy spaces for everyone and everything. Humans and wildlife included.
