  • Based on the principle of "ecology first, local condition oriented, local tree species first", the greening of Xiqiao Green Path scheme chooses ficus microcarpa, camphor tree and white mulberry, which have stong ability of adaption and less plant diseases and insect pests. In order to reduce cost and fully utilize the existing resources, mahogany and ficus microcarpa are transfered from Nanjiufu Line and reused in Green Path. By the combination of various plants, we create a green path environment with various colors that has flowers in three seasons, scenery in four seasons.

The sections it passes through witness ancient architectures of Lingnan region, the beautiful landscape of Beijiang and Mulberry Fish Pond where paths cross among mulberry trees. To highlight the above-mentioned human and natural landscape, red flower trees and bushes of different species are planted on the greening sections along levee bank, so that it produces a "Xiqiao Mountain scroll painting" which illustrates "sunrise basking the blooms in fiery glow, and the spring waters of blue as sapphire flow".
