A garden in the name of sustainability
The heat is setting in and the rainfall in our countries is decreasing year after year. Research into the effect of vegetation on soil water retention shows that soil covered with plants can retain several times more water than even bare soil. The vegetation identified by technicians from Jelenia Góra, the Polish town twinned with Cervia since the 1970s, in the Ulrico Sarti garden, was selected by choosing species that do not require frequent watering in times of drought, some of which retain water within them.
Mulching also greatly reduces the evaporation of water from the soil, so the entire area was covered with bark.
