One Garden and One Scenery in Guangzhou

  Design special flowers, different garden landscapes; with seasonal flowers, there are always flower rewards

  As a flower city in Guangzhou, the climate advantage allows the pocket park here to have more room for plant selection and matching design.

  Get off at Donghu Road Bus Station, Yongsheng Shangsha Pocket Park comes into view. There are entrances on all four sides of the park, and the view wall is hollowed out. Here, there is a large flow of people and many buildings. The pocket park with a sense of design provides convenience for urban residents and provides new ideas for optimizing the spatial pattern of the park's green space.

  Plants are important to convey beauty to the people. Several small leaf palm trees grow upright in the middle of Yongsheng Shangsha Pocket Park. The branches naturally grow in layers around the main trunk. The layers are distinct and spread out. There are several beautiful exotic kapok trees next to each other, the crown of the tree is umbrella-shaped, the posture is elegant and stretched, and a shade is set up.

  A long bench shaped like a Jiuqu Bridge is placed on the edge of the corridor, and the flower pond next to it is made of white pebbles, creating a "bridge on the lake" mood. Around the "lake", the silver edges of the Sorbus serrata, the golden longitudinal stripes on the leaf surface of the flowering and ginger leaf, the perennial bright color of bright-leaved cinnabar, and the bird of paradise flower embellishment among them are colored, plus The sweet-scented osmanthus fragrance is satisfying both visually and olfactory, and refreshing.

  At present, 33 pocket parks have been basically completed in Yuexiu District, Guangzhou, with an area of ​​about 20,000 square meters. Each pocket park has carefully designed a characteristic flower and several plants that bloom in different seasons according to the characteristics of the regional ecological environment.

Beijing leaves white and green

  Plants are more diverse and more ecological, a variety of spaces are used, and there are small forests in the center of the city

  In 2019, 17 pocket parks were newly built in Dongcheng District, Beijing, and are open to the public free of charge. Xiangheyuan Pocket Park is one of them. Stepping into it, the trail is winding, and trees such as ginkgo, ash, locust tree, silver red maple, etc. are planted all over the place. When the spring flowers bloom, the green shade covers the whole garden.

  There are three different types of pocket parks newly added in Dongcheng District. One is the land acquisition and reconstruction of the green belt, such as Xianghe Garden Pocket Park, with an area of ​​9450 square meters. "When we first took over, it was still a construction site with several abandoned houses," said Zhang Zhipengcheng, head of the planning and development section of the Dongcheng District Landscaping Bureau.

  The second type is to use the retreat space after rebuilding. Like the pocket hospital of Ren Hospital, it is located at the northeast corner of the intersection of Chongwenmen. It was originally used for demolishing green spaces and temporary parking lots. Green space planting ponds are added throughout the site, large trees are planted, plant communities are raised, there are ups and downs, and wooden seats are combined with flower pond retaining walls to increase the fun of the landscape.

  The third type of pocket park is based on the existing green space. The East Gate Pocket Park of the Temple of Heaven is located on the north side of the residential building. It is elongated from east to west, with a total length of 220 meters and an area of ​​about 1409 square meters. According to the shape of the plot, the designer takes a small-scale staying area as a point, a streamlined permeable pavement as a line, and a landscape of small trees, shrubs, ground flowers and other plants to form a unique green space.

  "In recent years, we have continued to increase planning and construction of green space and increase green space, expand the urban ecological space, so that the green around the people more, beautiful, and live." Gao Dawei, deputy director of the Beijing Municipal Landscaping Bureau introduced.

In 2019, Beijing plans to build small and micro green areas and pocket parks for smaller areas, so that citizens can see the green when they go out; for slightly larger and qualified plots, according to the nature, original ecology, multi-species and multi-functional Idea to build urban forest. After hard work, 181 pocket parks and small green areas, 52 city parks, and 33 city forests have been built one after another, and more high-level greening products have appeared beside the citizens.

  Landscaping in Beijing highlights the concept of urban forests, scientifically allocates plant species, increases the number of food and honey plants, provides food and habitat for birds and insects, and allows the park to bid farewell to "forests and no birds" and become small animals and people living together Shared green home.

  As of the end of 2019, the coverage of the 500-meter service radius of park green spaces in Beijing has increased to 83%. More and more citizens can open the window to see the green and go out to enter the park. This year, Beijing will make great use of the space for evacuation and retreat to vigorously supplement and increase greening, promote the construction of "leave and increase greening" of 13,000 mu, newly build 50 pocket parks and small and green areas, 41 urban leisure parks and 13 urban forests The service radius coverage rate of the park's green space of 500 meters was increased to 85%, and the per capita public green area reached 16.5 square meters.
