Melbourne Water Encourages Australian Citizens to Build 10,000 Rain Gardens- Inhabitat posted in Cities, Australia and Water
Melbourne Water, a water supply company owned by the Victorian State Government, is encouraging Australian residents to create 10,000 rain gardens – and they’re already up to 7,804! A rain garden is a water-saving garden that is designed to capture stormwater from hard surfaces such as driveways, patios and roofs via downpipes after it rains. The water supply company has set up a website with information on designing, creating and caring for rain gardens – no previous experience necessary.


What a great idea for lots of cities, including San Francisco!
