Canan Cengiz, Deniz Karaelmas, Aybuke Ozge Boz


Planted urban roads as an important component of urban landscape comprise the framework of urban open-green spaces. Planting of streets, boulevards and refuges which hold an important position among urban open-green spaces make undisputable ecological, aesthetic and functional contributions to the urban environment. The route on the Milli Egemenlik Street between the 100.Yıl Bus Terminal and Bülent Ecevit University 15 Temmuz Şehitler Campus located at the city of Zonguldak in Western Black Sea Region of Turkey was designated as the study area within the scope of this study. The plants used in the area were determined within the scope of the study along with road typologies and current physical states which were determined by way of on-site observations and photographs. Aesthetic, ecological and functional evaluations were made at the study area regarding plant use within the scope of streetscape.
