We came across a planning concept showcasing Japanese streets completely paved in grass. While we can’t find any information about the idea or creators (all copy is in Japanese), the carefully composed images are quite interesting, albeit practically impossible to sustain and the concept completely feasible. [thanks for the correction, HR!]

With the entire first world riding this eco-friendly-plant-green-everywhere wave, how could this possibly affect the locales of which mega-cities get fresh water? An initiative like New York City’s MillionTreesNYC is substantially beautifying the city and creating clean air and cool shade, but could it possibly be taxing our limited water-supply negatively?

Guess it all depends on how much it rains.
