HomeGreen Infrastructure

Green infrastructure is about bringing together natural and built environments and using a cities’ landscape as infrastructure. It is defined as natural greening and greening technologies that collectively provide society with a broad array of products and services for healthy living. Green infrastructure takes many forms including urban forests, natural areas, greenways, meadows and agricultural lands, green roofs and green walls, parks, gardens, landscaped areas, green open spaces, engineered wetlands, and stormwater ponds. Green infrastructure also encompasses soil volumes and qualities adequate to sustain living green infrastructure and absorb water, as well as technologies like porous paving, cisterns and soil structure.

At GreenBlue Urban, we envision a future in which contributions made by green infrastructure to quality of life are recognized, increased, protected, maintained, and enhanced.

Green infrastructure provides a multitude of economic, social, environmental, and health benefits – most of which are not recognized in our current legislation and policies. Because green infrastructure is such a critical element in the urban planning process, we believe that the design of a city around landscape, rather than architecture, is more capable of organizing the city and enhancing the urban experience.
