Green infrastructure uses native plant species – in form & function to create community-scaled resilient urban landscapes with rich, healthy soils, and permeable gray surfaces. These components enhance and encourage natural processes to reduce flood risks and slow subsidence (sinking) and improve air, earth & water quality.
In addition to environmental benefits, this project approach creates recreational & social spaces that connect the community – which encourages community gathering and stewardship to spur neighborhood revitalization.
Green infrastructure when partnered with gray infrastructure improvements lessens the burden on the city’s drainage system by create a gray / green network of mitigation. This is a comprehensive approach to water management.
