Cover Crops + Stormwater

In response to the American Society of Landscape Architect’s call for one-minute video entries of game-changing ideas in landscape architecture, The Colina entered the clip below.

Game Changing Idea: Create green infrastructure spaces that are beautiful and often visited assets for a community by reallocating a project’s budget to spend more on design, plants, furnishing, ongoing care, etc. Leverage the power of plants to generate cash to invest back in the project by planting cover crops to condition urban soils as an alternative to standard more expensive mechanical or engineered site preparations.
