What's on City of Melbourne

Growing Green Guide

The Growing Green Guide for Melbourne project investigated the potential to transform Melbourne’s roofs, walls and facades into vegetated, leafy habitats.

A guide was developed for the design, construction and maintenance of green roofs, walls and facades in Melbourne and Victoria. The project also explored policy options to support green roof, wall and façade development across Victoria,  and identified possible demonstration sites for future development of green roofs, walls and facades in inner Melbourne.

Further details are available on the Growing Green Guide website.

The project was funded through the four inner Melbourne councils (cities of Melbourne, Yarra, Stonnington and Port Phillip) and the Victorian Government’s Victorian Adaptation and Sustainability Partnership. The University of Melbourne was a project partner.
