Reduces Heat Island Effects
Heat islands can occur in large cities where much of the vegetation has been replaced with roads and structures. Urban development can actually alter weather patterns, absorbing significant amount of heat during the day it back into the atmosphere, which causes further warming. Gardens keep these buildings cool through transpiration, cooling the building and the surrounding atmosphere.
