Urban areas are expanding at a faster rate than any other land use type. Worldwide, every week until 2050, one million people will be added to the world’s cities. In the U.S., more than 80% of the population lives in urban areas.
The emerging green infrastructure market is new for the ornamental horticulture industry. Sales of functional plants to these markets are becoming a stable, growing, viable piece of the wholesale landscape plant market trade for nurseries and greenhouses (perennials/grasses). The market for green infrastructure landscape installation and maintenance services is also growing.
That’s why we’ve created NewTerrain, an e-newsletter that covers emerging green infrastructure markets and the external influences shaping them. Your editor, Debbie Hamrick, was a former editor at Ball Publishing, managing GrowerTalks and Floriculture International. In NewTerrain, she’ll cover a wide range of topics about green infrastructure, including storm water management, bioswales, green roofs and walls, native plant species, wildlife habitats and more.
