STUDY OF VARIOUS TYPES OF SHRUBS AT HOME AND ABROAD WHICH GROW TO A HEIGHT OF UP TO 100 CM TO DETERMINE THEIR SUITABILITY FOR REPLACING GRASS AT ROADSIDES

UNTERSUCHUNG EINHEIMISCHER UND FREMDLAENDISCHER STRAEUCHERARTEN BIS 100 CM WUCHSHOEHE AUF IHRE EIGNUNG ALS RASENERSATZ AN STRASSEN

BECAUSE OF THE INCREASE IN TRAFFIC AND THE ASSOCIATED SAFETY MEASURES WHICH HAVE BECOME NECESSARY,THE COSTS OF GRASS MAINTENANCE HAVE MULTIPLIED.IN MANY CASES THE CARRYING OUT OF MOWING WORK HAS ALREADY BEEN QUERIED BECAUSE OF THE DANGER TO TRAFFIC.THEREFORE EFFORTS MUST BE MADE TO GUARANTEE SOIL PROTECTION BY MEANS OF SHRUBS WHICH DO NOT HINDER VISION AND ONLY NEED CARE DURING THE TIME THEY ARE GROWING.THE AIM OF THE RESEARCH PROJECT IS TO DETERMINE TYPES OF SHRUBS WHICH ARE LOW AND RESISTANT TO THAWING SALT, AND COULD BE PLANTED INSTEAD OF GRASS IN ORDER TO SAVE THE COSTS OF MAINTAINING THE LATTER.THE FOLLOWING ARE ANTICIPATED: INSPECTION OF PLANTS ALREADY PRODUCED IN THE NURSERIES,DRAWING UP OF A CURRENT LIST OF SUITABLE PLANTS AND TRIAL PLANTING IN VARIOUS PLACES.MOREOVER,BY MEANS OF A BASIC REVIEW OF BOTANICAL LITERATURE,SUITABLE PLANTS WHICH ARE NOT YET A COMMERCIAL PROPOSITION HAVE TO BE DETERMINED. FINALLY IT IS TO BE ESTABLISHED WHETHER THERE IS ANY PROSPECT OF OBTAINING THE PLANTS REQUIRED BY CULTIVATING THEM.
