TEGELS ERUIT, GROEN ERIN!
In Amsterdam West residents, entrepreneurs and corporations with a garden are challenged to remove tiles from their garden and place green instead . For this new project in West named ‘’Tegels eruit groen erin’’ , Bureau Binnenentuinen offered me the opportunity to visit several gardens, full of tiles and to make a vegetation plan and an estimation of the tiles that should be taken out.
The goal is to replace 10,000 tiles with vegetation in one year and to make West greener and more climate-proof.
For Bureau Binnentuinen the estimation was fitting perfectly on the budget.
For the resident, the vegetation plan was bringing life to their garden. This time a garden without tiles but instead full of the flowers, trees and shelters.
The vegetation plan was also designed in order to contain solutions to make a garden water resistant by using several save-water methods such as rain barrels (regenton) , open gates/ponds and small ''wadi''. To achieve that we worked intensively with Buro regen en water, which created a Rainwater plan for every garden.
For the second round (spring 2019) you can register here (Available in Dutch)
If you register with at least five garden owners of your street, the chance of participating is bigger. View the website tegeleruit.nl for garden examples and conditions.
