This study focused on improving the Biotope Area Ratio, which has existing availability as a legal and institutional method for the architectural and urban fields to respond rapidly to recently growing demands for urban agriculture. The existing Biotope Area Ratio indicators only considers the depth and permeability of soil among a range of conditions for plant growth; they can be used for landscaping plants management but have difficulties in dealing with plants that are the major factors in urban agriculture. This study aimed to verify this hypothesis and suggest a direction of improvement in the Biotope Area Ratio. The study discovered that the management of plant growth only using the Biotope Area Ratio indicators has limitations.
