A highly recommended short video about the opportunity water brings in sustainable landscape design. It has been a common theme throughout out history of channelling water into narrow corridors and sewer like pipework. This very outdated method of drainage is usually a missed opportunity to create a better more diverse landscape and actually increases the risk of urban flooding. The video was created by the Landscape Institute. For more information go to : https://www.landscapeinstitute.org/
