With the rapid growth of economy and the improvement of the public's environmental awareness in China, the improvement of urban eco-environmental quality has attracted the extensive attentions. In recent years, the construction of urban green space has been developing rapidly. However, there are also serious resource-wasting and environmentally hazardous situations during the construction. Therefore, building resource-saving and environment-friendly urban green space is the development direction of the construction of green space in the future. In this study, the construction of green space is divided into 5 processes, which are site selection, planning, design, material selection and construction of green space. These processes are subdivided into 19 steps. The concept of resource-saving and environment-friendly is divided into 10 performance standards, so the relationship between steps and performance is established. The concept of resource-saving and environment-friendly has been blended into the process of the construction of urban green space. In this way, the consumption of resource and energy can be effectively reduced, and the environmental hazard can be minimized. Hence the sustainable development of urban green space can be achieved.
