What is Green Infrastructure?
Green infrastructure consists of both natural systems such as forests and wetlands, as well as vegetative technologies like green roofs and green walls, and the products designed to support growth such as engineered soils, cisterns and irrigation systems.
Green infrastructure technologies also include bioswales, meadows, engineered wetlands, planting beds, turf and permeable pavements. All of these living green infrastructure elements create a system in your community that greatly support quality of life.
