This professor at NYU does some great things with these ideas. See her TED TALK here: http://www.ted.com/talks/natalie_jeremijenko_the_art_of_the_eco_mindshift.html

What an innovative idea. Nature seems to know best and it takes us humans many years to solve the problem of water runoff. We need to look at nature for other ideas and adapt them to the urban landscape and the world would be a far better place to live. This is far more attractive than the normal storm runoff retention ponds one sees in most areas. Let us hope that more cities and towns, not only in Canada but in other parts of the world, look at this and develop their own natural areas, especially in new developments where there is hardly a tree to be found.
