An area is a surface that develops within
certain limits. Green, on the other hand, is the color that is
formed from the combination of blue with yellow and that is associated with the
hue that the leaves of the plants usually exhibit.
A green area, therefore, is a terrain characterized
by the presence of vegetation. A forest, a jungle,
a park and a garden are green areas that can
have very different characteristics from each other.
there are green areas that develop by natural action. Others, however, are
created by man who encourages the cultivation of plants for some purpose. It
should be noted that the human being also affects the
development or decrease of green areas that arose from nature.
Green areas are of great importance to life. Plants are responsible for
absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and releasing oxygen. They
also help regulate temperatures and reduce the impact of erosion. Without green
areas, life would not be possible.
In urban environments, green areas are essential to counteract the effect of pollution. Large
cities have developed industries and high vehicular traffic: trees and plants in
green areas capture part of the carbon dioxide they emit and transform it into
oxygen. For this reason, land such as parks, squares and
gardens should be reserved and buildings should not be built over the entire
surface, since otherwise the ecological balance is too far away.
Green lungs are also called those green areas that are created or exist in
cities. They, in addition to those already mentioned, bring with them another
important series of advantages such as the following:
-They help improve the quality of life of the residents.
-They become perfect places to fight stress and anxiety. And they are great
spaces to relax, read a book, lie on the grass, sunbathe...
-It is determined, in the same way, that they promote the creativity of
-They allow them to interact with Nature and learn to respect it.
-They give the possibility of practicing different sports outdoors.
