Naturalize your property
Help to restore the natural water cycle on your property by using trees, shrubs and other plants to absorb and clean rainfall. Replace hard surfaces with natural groundcovers and porous paving to allow rainfall to soak into the ground.
The urban forest and other vegetation in the city of Toronto contribute significantly to stormwater infiltration, storage and purification. Residential properties form an integral part of the urban forest network - 80% of trees in Toronto are on private property, in addition to a multitude of ground covers, hedges and bushes.
