A Handbook of BlueGreenGrey Systems. The result of these solutions is a greener and more attractive urban environment with lower risk for flooding and reduced impacts of drought.
The natural water cycle has been disturbed within the modern urban environment,
where there is heavy competition for a relatively small amount of space. Previously,
trees had the space to extend their roots so that rainwater could seep to them
through the ground, but decades of urban construction have created dense
superstructures above impermeable surfaces. This kind of environment lacks both
adequate space for planting as well as natural water management.
