Urban regreening leads to 85% reduction in felony assaults and a nearby park increases property value by 20%. With our expertise we can plant at scale in urban environments.

More green in our cities

Nowadays, we can quite often hear on TV or see on social media, how forested urban areas are beneficial to our health and well-being. Being surrounded by green trees and nature is even more beneficial because not only that we breathe fresh air, but it also has a huge impact on our happiness and mental health. Many doctors recommend that people with respiratory problems move to the countryside, where vegetation overwhelms urbanization.

Therefore, recent studies have shown how various economies and industries, not excluding local stores, can be expanded even more when surrounded by green parks. DGB is looking forward to investing in destroyed or deforested parks and rebuilding them, as we are aware of the seriousness of the situation that we are in due to negative consequences such as deforestation and fires.

Urban greening

By definition, urban greening is "public landscaping and urban projects about forestation that can create beneficial relationships between citizens and their surroundings manually". It means to plan and plant all sorts of adequate vegetation strategically and aesthetically. Lack of urban greening creates various health issues among the residents, which is why many governments turn to companies such as DGB to provide ecological solutions.

Planting more trees on and around buildings requires careful planning. To create more parks and green landscapes is also part of architecture since they shouldn't look plain, but rather green. Also, placing plants in every corner, as long as these plants can survive, will improve the aesthetic looks of every room, neighborhood, or city. Even though there is an aesthetic plan in place, the meaning behind this is much more than just making parks look beautiful. Every little plant can contribute a little towards producing more fresh air. The more plants and trees in a city, the more GHGs reduction in the atmosphere, which is released mostly from vehicles and traffic.

Our experts have been trying to find a way to incorporate even more plants everywhere they can and in every project we have the chance of doing so. By planting even more, and providing more education about urban greening, these projects can only mean benefits for everyone, at the same time not costing much. To begin with, more greenery can improve your mood after hard work in the office.

Green city planning

The world's largest cities expand exponentially, day by day. Thus, it's essential to know the urban capacity of the city and how much of this capacity should belong to trees and green areas. The fact that places that used to be forests have been destroyed during industrialization has a great impact on our ecosystem. Now that we understand the problem, we need to be more proactive than ever. We can't let humans, plants, and animals to continue living in this urban pollution.

Before, urban greening was something basic and gravitated towards just making plain parks and bike trails, but as more research has been done, we develop more aesthetic and efficient solutions. There's so much more than just parks, as there is a huge spectrum of creativity to be done while greening our cities.

Some examples require more creativity and planning, such as green castles, green walls, or even green rooftops. Not only are these beneficial to the environment, but they are also eye-catching and increase property value.

Greening our cities also make them appear even more attractive, for when tourists or even locals, go sightseeing. Urbanization done this way can turn a blank space into something that makes people stop and take a photo. Urban greening provides a boost to urban tourism and helps visitors have a positive overall impression of the city.

We are all aware that in large, densely-populated cities, air and water pollution expands by the number of vehicles, industrial machines, factories, means of heating the population, and raw materials that are burned each day. Unless we turn to more eco-friendly solutions, the amount of urban greenery will need to expand, along with the city's expansion.
