The engineering benefits of plants include acoustics, water polishing, deciduous shading, air scrubbing, humidification and evaporative cooling. Vegetation offers the opportunity to create at low cost a building services installation that makes negligible noxious discharges to its surroundings. Plants have been polishing water, filtering and scrubbing air, humidifying and cooling adiabatically long before engineers started synthesising these processes to deal with the “plague proportions” in which we live, or at least more often most of us work.
