5. It improves air quality Plants are natural air purifiers. They consume carbon dioxide from the air and replenish it with oxygen. Some species can effectively deaden pollutants like dust and soot, and greenhouse gases like carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, CFCs, methane, ozone and so on.

GREEN ROOF- Green roofs are not just for rural settings. The roof of the international award-winning Forest Lodge Eco House by Code Green is in the heart of Sydney. The green roof was installed on top of structural steel crossbeams and a concrete roof, braced against the neighboring historic buildings. Plants were tested off-site to ensure they needed no human support to survive. There is also a 26-foot-high vertical garden. Both gardens are fed by underground water storage tanks.
