All the site and roof drainage collects at the virtual wetlands, creating habitat and preventing excessive storm run-off
Site run-off increases the flow of toxins into our rivers and streams, negatively affecting wild habitat. By using permeable paving that slows the run-off of site water, this impact can be greatly reduced. The use of living plants for courtyards and roofs also reduces urban heat sink that contributes to global warming.
