Why Consider FFS Horticulture Services At Industrial Sites?

With the growing necessity to reduce carbon footprints and contribute to ESG goals, horticulture at industrial sites is becoming the need of the hour. Let us understand what horticulture is and its importance at industrial sites.

What is Horticulture?

Horticulture is the applied science and art of designing, cultivating and growing plants in a defined area that are used both for consumption plus ornamental and environmental purposes. The word horticulture literally means, the culture of a garden. It is a unique form of agriculture wherein specialised horticulturists understand your location and terrain and design a sustainable green landscape. This landscape includes a wide range of trees, plants, flowers and vegetables. The green mix is made keeping in mind the various ecological and sustainable benefits that the piece of land can create.

Industrial Green Landscape

How is Horticulture at Industrial sites different?

When horticulture & landscape planning, development and management takes place at an industrial site there are many parameters that need to be taken into consideration, like the type of industry, the levels of pollution created, the available green development area in comparison to the industrial area, the number of staff at site, the machinery deployed and many others. These factors help the horticulturists define the objectives and accordingly design the landscape with the appropriate choice of trees, plants, vegetation and flowers. Every selected plantation has a positive ecological impact on the site that creates an overall sustainable ecosystem.
