Les enjeux de l'utilisation des plantes résistantes à la sécheresse dans l'aménagement des espaces publics urbains en France métropolitaine

Abstract : Plants, first resources for the landscape designer, are a living material in keeping with a changing environment. Within the present context of climate change and depletion of water resources, drought resistant plants rediscover their nobility. More, urban expansion is a heavy weight on these spaces that landscape agencies have to fight. So, the realization, in town, of projects using this kind of plants, sometimes come across snags for effectiveness of revival and growing. A bibliographic synthesis will precise, first the original ecosystems of plants which support, at least, one month of continuous drought each year, then specific constraints of urban environment. After that, a look will be given to the practical reality about their use in public spaces in town. Interviews with professionals of town planning and other landscape actors will throw light in the evolution of choosing plants and on the adaptation of techniques of planting and maintenance. The analysis of two models of projects, including the use of drought resistant plants, and the avoidance of watering at the end, will complete this synthesis of practices. The main stakes of using these plants adapted to a dry environment will finally be exposed as advantages and limits according to three thematic axes: water, esthetic, urbanity, and put in prospect in a global process of designing an ideal vegetal space.
