Greening

Greening

Green infrastructure refers to greening elements that support a city such as street trees, community gardens and Water Sensitive Urban Design. These green infrastructure elements are fundamental in creating a high quality of life, and play an important role in creating a city that is climate resilient and adaptable to future needs.

The Greening section of the Adelaide Design Manual outlines the principles associated with greening the city streets and the approaches such as Living Architecture, Green Streets, Water Sensitive Urban Design, Urban Forests and Urban Food which contribute to the city’s environmental and lifestyle benefits such as shelter and cooling.

The Greening section also provides guidance for street tree typology and principles, a street tree classification map, and a strategic planting guidance map. This section should be read in conjunction with the Green Infrastructure Guidelines available for download below.
