The Gardens at

G-CADD.

 

G-CADD presents a unique opportunity to apply landscaping, gardening, and plant propagation as tools for generating ecologically productive activity on urban parcels, plots, and parking lots.  Many of the gardens focus on capturing, conveying, and recycling rain and storm water, while deploying native plants to create new habitats.
