Examining the Microclimate Pattern and Related Spatial Perception of the Urban Stormwater Management Landscape: The Case of Rain Gardens

1.1. Overview

Landscape design is an essential component of urban stormwater management and green infrastructure systems. It has been found that landscape planning and design can contribute to stormwater control, microclimate regulation, and an improvement in the quality of the urban living environment. Due to its potential contributions to the living and built environment, stormwater management landscape design has become an important aspect of the contemporary landscape industry [1]. However, it is important to note that focusing only on drainage or stormwater management functions may overlook the other existing design and research opportunities of green stormwater infrastructure (GSI). Rain gardens, as one of the most common and widely used components of GSI, also face the same problem. Read More
