Urban green space is vital for the livability of a city. It is important how to utilize the vegetation on rural-urban fringes to improve the green space system of an extended built-up area. In this paper, based on the analysis of the features about vegetation on fringes in its types, dynamics, and potentials, it is argued that keeping the vegetation patches be much more indigenous, well distributed and connected, and remain this status during all the transition period should be included in the planning goals at all levels; and all the planning efforts need to be taken through an approach integrated into the planning system according to particular type or level planning could take. Some key planning strategies or measures were developed, which include functioning with the ecological potentials, embedding the ecological assessment through all the planning process, and more detailed in planning.
