Residential yards are important as they are a part of the everyday landscape for most people living in urban areas. Vegetation is one important component of the yards. The aim of this report is to suggest a way of systemizing the way vegetation on residential yards is being planned, maintained and renewed. The most common perspectives on plant use are plant ecology or an aesthetic perspective, focusing on either habitat or on colours, textures and other architectural values. In this report we introduce a third concept: plant technology in which we emphasize sustainable plant design: design for fairly easy maintenance, and design that can last over time. With the concept of plant technology we have aimed to include aspects of plant use that are easy to understand by a layman. It contains aspects of plant use that are related to the context where the plant is used. It concerns basic, but never the less, important aspects, like: if the plant will grow larger than what is suited for the design; if it will cover the ground to reduce weeds; if leaves, thorns or root sprouts will cause inconveniencies; if the design will cause unnecessary maintenance problems. Obviously, using the concept of plant technology is not a strategy to reach a good design, but rather to avoid a bad design. In this report we suggest a guide to detect problems related to plant technology in residential yards in south Sweden. The guide can be extended and adapted to be useful in other types of areas, like parks, cemeteries and other types of technical infrastructure.
