Green wall system

Turn London into an urban park? What a great idea. This is not really some crowd concept, it has to come from legislation on:

  • green aspects of new developments (mostly, green features in the initial artist’s impression stage, all removed when built)
  • front gardens and conversion to drives and mini car parks (use grass-crete, or grass paving, or just ban drives now, since a road parking space is removed by having a drive)
  • build links and pathways between green areas to make wildlife corridors
  • ban toxic pesticides on green principles
  • ban plastic artificial grass (which is appearing everywhere, and was even in The Times gardening section)
  • use more green walls, green roof technology (yes we know is expensive for return)
  • practical steps rather than nice websites and magazine articles.

Promote green building to increase biodiversity and reduce carbon by absorption.
