Green infrastructure (GI) is a concept including all the types of urban vegetation and stormwater management to provide multifunctional, scalable and sustainable solutions for urban landscape. The nature of GI seems to vary as the scale varies from the green networks between the cities to detailed stormwater management practices at site scale. This study concentrates on GI's scalability in the case of low density housing (LDH). This dynamic land use category shows that scalable GI requires both understanding on biophysical platform as
conventional planning assignment, but also the socio-ecological processes it holds as this combination is the resource ton enhance GI over time.
