Untiling Amsterdam:

Tegel Eruit, Groen erin!

In Amsterdam West, New West and Center,  residents, entrepreneurs and corporations with a garden are challenged to remove tiles from their garden and place green instead . For this new project, 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 on water solution for every garden individualy. 

The project was successful the first year, 2018/19! We are happy to continue our green mission for second year already, 2019 in West, and additional 2020 in New West and Centre.
