Plants have so many uses. We have already seen how plants can have architectural uses. They are also used for medicinal purposes.
And for recreational ones …
Another very important use for plants is in an engineering capacity.
We use plants all the time for their strength and their power to hold the earth down.
Plugs of grasses at the sea have the power to create huge sand dunes out of small ridges in the sand blown from the wind.
We use plants to hold down the side slopes of an ordinary ditch.
Or to keep a steep slope from eroding away.
Plants act as windbreaks.
They can provide shade and shelter from the sun on a hot day.
In more ways than one.
