Evaporative cooling from water capture and holding. Noise control (hard surfaces such as concrete and glass provide much stronger reflections and therefore nosier environments). Biophilic noises (therapeutic noises associated with nature such as wind blowing through plants). Less smog and better air quality, both indoor and outdoors.
also give art opportunities and the opportunity to grow food in an urban environment.
Less sewer overflow due to rain harvesting. Biodiversity in plantings leads to increased biodiversity in insects and birds which would not otherwise live in an urban environment. There is potential to grow native rare plants and to have better air quality. It gives us improved water quality through natural filtering and a reduced “Urban Heat Island” effect.

Thermal mass provides a cooler building and provides energy saving.
Green walls give a building enveloped longevity.
There is a better environmental building rating (e.g. Green Star rating) and potential increase in property value.
