Scalable Green Infrastructure And The Water, Vegetation, And Soil System
Does the garden of a single-family house matter to the whole city? Private domestic gardens are multifunctional micro-oases that are carefully landscaped and constantly changed to reflect the preferences of their owners. Low-density housing characteristically comprises separate plots and their gardens, which are difficult to manage with the traditional tools of urban planning. The role of low-density housing in city-scale green infrastructure can be enhanced through integrative design of water and vegetation in garden-scale details and through the design process of gardens. This integrative design process requires a balanced understanding of the core system of water, vegetation, and soil.
