Cut your curb to save rainwater?
Very interesting idea from Resilient Communities about cutting parts of your curb down and growing pockets of trees and shrubs on your property next to the street with the rainwater that then DOESN'T rush away down the storm drains along with polluted water FROM the street.
It is working in Arizona! There is a short video by John Robb. Find it with Google or see
