Pingyao county in North China's Shanxi province has been developing an innovative urban landscaping program in recent years, helping to transform the local living environment which has improved significantly.

Over the last three years, the local finance department has increased funding, with 72.44 million yuan ($11.21 million) invested in greening and 38.49 million yuan in landscaping maintenance, effectively guaranteeing the rollout of the landscaping in the county. 

In view of limited urban green space, Pingyao has been adding landscaping along its roads and rivers and developing parks, squares and gardens. 

Three comprehensive parks and more than 20 small gardens have been built in the county, which have greatly increased the urban green area in Pingyao. The county's 32 main and branch roads have been greened and the renovation and upgrading of the main roads in urban Pingyao has been completed. 

Relying on special spaces, such as road guardrails, slopes and open spaces, Pingyao has installed racks of climbing plants to effectively enhance road landscapes.

In addition, the greening rate of newly built communities is now estimated to have exceeded 30 percent. 

To better improve the quality of its urban greening and realize the in-house supply of garden greening flowers, in 2019, Pingyao completed the construction of a 720-square-meter greenhouse, a nursery which produced about 360,000 pots of various types of flowers in 2020. This facility has reportedly fully met the demand for flower placements on urban roads. 

Meanwhile, technical and business training has been given to the staff members of local gardening departments to further improve the protection of plants. 

As a result, the county now has four provincial-rated parks, one garden community and nine garden roads.
