Abstract: The research work presents information on the most important issues in modern society’s life – eco matters, in particular, eco – urbanism. Nowdays as ' green and eco ' issues are of great importance the European Commission promotes Green Week events that aspires citizens across Europe to engage and express their views or show examples of how today's investments can help the idea of a 'greener future' become a reality for the generations to come. According to the global plant protection strategy and adopted Convention on Biological Diversity the determination of medicinal aromatic plants role in eco- urbanism is being considered. (Zajonc, 1980; Ayad, 1994; Global Strategy,2002). The development of medicinal (aromatic) plants is based on long-term research data patterns and biological methods. Landscaping functions in a number of high importance issues such as environmental aesthetic improvement, protection from air pollution and plant species diversity enrichment. Scientists and professionals of various fields deal with the problems of landscaping and design, development and maintenance, also security issues in a comprehensive manner. The medicinal (aromatic) plants grown for landscaping purposes are the property of state as well as the society and they must be not only cherished and protected but their diversity of species must also be enriched. The plants serve both as educational and at the same time as recreational and human healthy lifestyle optimization means in the processes of investigating, teaching/learning. Scientists say that in those cities and towns where there are high quality green areas and flowerbeds significantly less crime occurs (Bratman et al., 2012). [...]
