In Poland, homeowners will be able to avoid paying the tax if they planted roofs and facades
From 2022, residents of the city of Kalisz will be able to avoid paying real estate tax if they plant greenery on the roofs or facades of their houses, Europuls reports.
The appearance of perennial plants on buildings will help to more effectively combat greenhouse gas emissions and increase the population of insects and birds.
Also, according to the mayor’s office, “green” roofs will help create an “air conditioning effect” for entire neighborhoods during the heat.
Greening rooftops is a common European trend that helps improve urban environments. Today, such houses can be found in many European settlements, including Amsterdam and Linz.
