About THE URBAN LANDSCAPE COMPANY
The mission of THE URBAN LANDSCAPE COMPANY is to cover NYC in plants by promoting and supporting sustainable gardening practices, for three reasons:
1) Plants are pretty and they make people happy.
2) To bring fresh air to NYC. Plants are the most efficient machines for making clean oxygen and cooling the city in the summer. The process of transpiration, the evaporation of water from a plants leaves, is what cools the air in the summer.

3) To catch storm run-off for use in urban plantings. Every time it rains 1/4" or more in NYC the impermeable surfaces such as side walks and roof tops prevent natural water absorption causing the East River and the Hudson to be flooded with millions of gallons of sewage.
The sewage overflow is creating vast dead zones in the ocean just off the coast of NY and other major East coast cities.
The water must be caught upstream and stored. Plants release water slowly through their leaves in a process called transpiration.
