The green infrastructure industry is concentrated in urban centres around Australia, particularly in the southern capital cities of Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney. A gradual progression of the industry further north is now occurring.
This RIRDC report provides the industry with greater knowledge of plant selection for extensive green roofs and living walls in Australia’s challenging subtropical climate. The many environmental, economic and social benefits of green infrastructure have resulted in its increasing adoption overseas. However, a lack of proven plant species suited to Australian conditions has deterred growth of the industry in this country.
This report is targeted at horticulturalists, landscape architects and commercial suppliers of green infrastructure components.
