Abstract

 This study examined the influence of the relationship with nearby residents on the decision-making processes of green curtain implementation by using structural equation modeling with questionnaire data from residents. The proposed model shows that the gratification derived from cultivation and the shading and cooling effects of green curtains increase residents’ willingness to implement green curtains next summer, while the cost awareness suppresses this willingness next summer. Furthermore, the relationship with nearby residents enhances the gratification derived from cultivation and the shielding and cooling effects but does not affect cost awareness. In the group wherein green curtains have not been implemented this summer, the gratification gained from cultivation increases their willingness to implement them next summer. In the implementation group, the shading and cooling effects increase this willingness, while the cost awareness suppresses the willingness, and the effects of shading and cooling effects dominate the effects of cost awareness.
