The concept of green corridor could be an option in the spatial planning strategy that is ecologically, socially and economically sustainable. The concept is believed to provide the direction of positive developments especially in the growing of rural urban fringe. In many cases of rural urban fringe areas, access roads connecting villages and towns have experienced a faster physical growth, changing land use, and natural character degradation of their land resource. This article seeks to present visual resource management opportunities to support the realization of the ecological corridor planning. Visual approach in many cases of rural spatial planning is needed to increase the potential of cultural ecosystem services that are usually owned by rural areas that are characterized by natural resource. This paper presents a study of rural urban fringe areas in Bumiaji District, Batu City, Indonesia. The study assesses and analyzes the visual quality of a total of 33 observation points along the main road of the area. Results of the analysis showed significant growth direction on the phenomenon of rural urban fringe. The analysis in this study also produced four (4) types of road corridor which can be useful for further development of green corridor concept in the region.
