Guide "Aménager avec le végétal"

Aujourd'hui, de plus en plus d'architectes, urbanistes, architectes-paysagistes, concepteurs d'espaces publics intègrent le végétal dans leurs projets : les arbres, arbustes, fleurs, graminées, grimpent le long des murs et des façades, investissent les toitures et les terrasses, gagnent les lignes de tramways jusqu'aux fissures des trottoirs, sous la forme de micro-implantations florales. Les espaces végétalisés sont convoqués pour dessiner des écoquartiers, composer des parcs et jardins, répondre à la demande de nature des habitants, réenchanter la ville de demain.

L'ouvrage "Aménager avec le végétal...

Today, more and more architects, urban planners, landscapers, architects and public spaces designers are integrating greenery into their projects: trees, shrubs, flowers, grasses, creeping along walls and facades, invading rooftops and terraces, growing from tramlines to sidewalks cracks, in the form of micro-planting. These green spaces are called upon to design eco-districts, to make up parks and gardens, to respond to inhabitants’ nature demands and to reenchant the city of tomorrow. 

Cerema's “Green landscaping” book brings together testimonies from elected officials, specialists and experts who have initiated a policy of development and enhancement of plants. It makes some useful method contributions so that greenery is no longer sseen as the poor link of development practices, a common decoration or a simple piece of furniture. It proposes a step-by-step strategy for implementing a sustainable development and management approach for public green spaces, right from the reflection phase to the effective implementation of these projects.
