Samenvatting (Dutch description)

Regenwaterafvoer en parkontwikkeling in residential estates in Johannesburg maakt vaak geen gebruik van hoogteverschillen om water naar vegetatie te dirigeren. Hier is dit wel gedaan. Alhoewel er geen infiltratiezone gemaakt is, wordt de afvoer toch enigszins vertraagd en gebruikt om de planten nat te houden.
